For You, Dad

Hi guys

It's Father's Day today here in the UK.  I sadly lost my dear Dad in 2005 after a short battle with cancer so I always find special days like this pretty tough, especially as he was taken from us at only 57 years of age :(  He was such a lovely man so the happy memories always make it a little easier.

But, although my Dad is no longer here I did make a card for Matt's dad for Father's Day.  Here it is...

On a panel of kraft cardstock I stamped the little gardening image and coloured this with FlexMarkers.  I then stamped the sentiment, the Dad part then die cut with its co-ordinating die and popped up on 3D foam.  I matted the panel onto some striped patterned paper and then adhered flat to the kraft card base.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Little Claire - one of their Dinkies stamps (unknown name); Clearly Besotted - My Hero (with co-ordinating die) and Happy Everything
  • Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Versa Color - Bark
  • Patterned Paper: Lawn Fawn - Let's Polka
  • Cardstock: Neenah - Desert Storm

I'll be back again in a while with another card I made last night.

Happy Father's Day to all the lovely dads out there :)
