For Dad


With Father's Day just around the corner, I made this card from snippets lying on my table. The kaisercraft die-cut stag and shimmery mat beneath it were from a previous card I made that I just wasn't crazy about, so I carefully cut that panel from the card and re-purposed it here. I placed it on a gray Recollections piece of dsp, cutting with a Lil Inker stitched rectangle die set- which was used on the image panel and cardstock base as well. The blue sentiment panel was heat-embossed with white ep using a MFP stamp, and I die-cut that with a Crealies Text Tag die. I attached it with 2 white mini brads. The word "For" was done with a SNSS stamp on white and fussy cut. The card base is heavy royal blue, purchased from a local store.

I will share this with the following challenges:

 Simon Wednesday challenge which is to use more than one stamp.



Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!

Great Father's Day card! Great colors, also. Don't we have the best scraps laying, sometimes? Love that royal blue card.
