One for Dad


I made a card for "dad" that will be going into my next OWH box early next year. I used a MFP stamp set to create this one, along with some dsp from a DCWV "naturals" paper pad. I stamped the clock image on some coordinating plain dsp, and embossed the entire thing with clear ep after adding a touch of color with Copics. The tiny mini brad in the center added just the right touch. The foiled dsp was hard to photograph, but I liked the graphic design that had a masculine feel. I added the sentiment on a die-cut ticket from SNSS and for the final touch, I added some tiny stars from my little jar of negative die cuts that came from a SSS border die.

I'm entering this over at MFP Speedy Fox & Friends challenge #242 which is to "round those corners."
I'm also sharing it over at the Snippets Playground 2-week challenge #156 & 157" - must use snippets.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Sunday!
