Fathers Day card

Hiya! I'm having a very lazy day today but I've managed to make a card. I wanted to get all the ones I 'have' to make for the year before the baby is born, so far I'm up to everything I need before August so not too bad! Today I've made a Fathers Day card for my dad. I thought this weeks Pals Paper Arts colours were perfect for a male card and I combined them with this weeks Just Add Ink sketch. I used some funky alphabet stamps to make the focus of the card. The navy panel was plain originally but looked a bit drab so I stamped in the matching ink with a woodgrain texture - not sure it shows, and I've since straightened out the wonky twine! ;-) Anyway, thanks for stopping by, I hope you're having a good weekend! :-)

Stamps - Sweet Stamp Shop 'Monogram Alpha', Mama Elephant 'Sketchy Letters' & My Favourite Things 'Western Borders'
Cardstock - Stampin' Up 'Cajun Craze', 'Night of Navy' & 'Naturals White'
Ink - Stampin' Up 'Cajun Craze' & 'Night of Navy'
Embossing folder - Cuttlebug 'Herringbone'
Die - Lawn Fawn 'Stitched Journaling card'
Other - natural twine

Beth, this is a GREAT card! I love that it has such a 'clean' look, and yet there are wonderful details to draw the eye in. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week!

This is a great man card Beth. I love the texture you added in with the embossing. And funky alphabets really make your fathers day sentiment stand out. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

This is a great fathers day card. I like how you have put the paper behind the cut out chevrons. I like how you have used different fonts for your sentiment too. Chantell JAI

What an excellent use of fonts! I also like the way the chevrons complement each other. Thanks for playing with PPA this week!

A great masculine card and I like how you have used the chevrons to focus on part of the greeting. Thanks for playing with our sketch at Just Add Ink this week.
