Father's Day

Just a quick post today. I made this for my Dad for Father's Day. Pretty simple card and it went together pretty quickly.

The Canvas background was stamped on Soft Suede using the same ink color. I didn't want the entire piece covered with the Canvas image so I placed the stamp rubber side up, laid the piece of paper on top of it and then just applied pressure to a few areas with my fingers to pick up the image. I then crumbled it up before placing it on the card.

While I didn't intentionally set out for the sentiment to stamp unevenly, I like the way it turned out. It definitely added to the manliness of the card. :) I cut out and popped Happy and Day up on dimensionals for a little depth. The ribbon edges were lightly sponged with Early Espresso.

Stamps: All Holidays (retiring), Canvas (retired)
Ink: Always Artichoke, Early Espresso and Marina Mist Markers, Soft Suede
Paper: Always Artichoke, Early Espresso, Marina Mist, Soft Suede, Elegant Soiree DSP
Misc.: Marina Mist 5/8" Satin Ribbon, Screw Brads, Sponge, Dimensionals, Mat Pack, Paper Piercer

Have a great day!
