Happy Father's Day


For all the dads out there, Happy Father's Day!
I made this card some time ago but never posted it, so I thought it was perfect for this day set aside to honor all the great fathers in the world. My friend brought this die to my house a while ago and I die-cut it with Bermuda Bay, white and navy card stock, adding a tiny sliver or 2 of daffodil delight for the space between the sails. The background was done with a SU! Seaside ef, which I dotted with aqua stickles and a toothpick on the raised portions.


I'm pretty sure this is a Unity sentiment, but not 100% certain, but it just fits the image and it's what's inside of the card.

I'm sharing this with the Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #193 - You're the Man!

Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to tell your dad how much he means to you today! I wish my dad was still with us so I could tell him again how much I loved him and how thankful I am for the good life he gave me.

That's a really nice die and I like the colours you've chosen. I bet that sail boat could be snipped out too for an alternative look. Isn't that just the perfect sentiment to match the die, another great masculine make :) x

A wonderful sea scene for a wonderful Dad. I am glad you shared this card. I miss mine too but would not want him back as I am sure he is happy in Heaven.

Aw my friend, I feel the same way and miss mine as well. Your card is just beautiful and so serene! I've always been drawn to all things nautical so your card is just breathtaking in design and totality!

This is a great die and one that can be used for may things. I like the tiny splash of yellow you added. Yes, I miss my dad also. He loved me with all his heart, as I did him. He sure could tell a good story.
