With Father's day approaching very soon, I decided to start working on those cards and here's the first one I came up with. I used snippets of grey and white cardstock to make the panels along with some die-cut blue water and a notched border. Since I don't have many options for Father's Day sentiments, I printed this digital ticket sentiment and colored it in with matching markers. The lower embossed panel was a snippet of grey, done with a Spellbinders M-bossabilities folder that I've had for a long time. I sponged on some Pumice Stone ink to darken the shoe prints a wee bit. The upper panel was a snippet of white cardstock that I covered with a piece of aluminum foil and embossed with a Cuttlebug diamond plate ef. The blue notched border was done with a MFT die, while the watery waves were done with a SNSS die. The person this is intended for loves the water and still works, so I thought all the elements would work.
I'll share this with the following challenges:
The Snippets Playground Challenge #455 -must use snippets
Can You Handle the Pressure? - A/G with embossing *optional twist - birds
the Allsorts Challenge #730 - Use a stencil or alternative A/G
The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - add a sentiment
On May 29th we celebrate Memorial day not only as summer begins, but mainly to remember our fallen heroes who gave their lives for our freedom. We should never forget that all gave some; while some gave all. Freedom comes with a cost. Heartfelt thanks to those who served and to those who continue to serve. May God bless you all.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!
