Father's Day Card


I found this cute stamped image (unknown manufacturer) in my stash and thought it would make a cute father's day card. Most dads work very hard and should take time to just stop and chill now and then, so this  image reminded me of that fact. I colored the image with Copics, adding fruit punch stickles to the flower for a little sparkle. The MFT fishtail banners were die-cut with Melon Mambo and white cardstocks, and layered with 2 die-cut butterflies done with a (Retired) SU! butterfly framelit die. The sentiment is by SU! The mini sun was done with 2 dies - a Lil Inker small sun die, along with the center cut with a MB holly and leaves die and a snippet of bright orange cardstock. The clouds were done with a Lil Inker cloud die with Cool Caribbean and white cardstocks and I added some clear Wink of Stella to the white cloud. The inside was printed on my computer and says "wishing you a happy, peaceful and relaxing father's day."

I'm sharing this with the Dies R Us challenge #98 which is "sunshine or clouds." Oddly enough, I've used both :)

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!

Such a cute card and that image is just perfect for this occasion! Most men work really hard day in day out and deserve a day of rest just like your guy in the image! It's always good to acknowledge them and this card does just that, Carol. Love your coloring and all the diecuts you used to create a peaceful scene. Cool Caribbean was one of my favorite colors....wouldn't that have been a wonderful addition to the SU colors! TFS and hope your doing well! Hugs~
