Grandfather card

This is a vintage style card I made for my father-in-law.  I used Waltzing Mouse Text-it stamp set as well as a Michaels $1 stamp.  The patterned paper is from K & Company that was embossed with the swirls Cuttlebug folder.  I antiqued the card with Tim Holtz Antique Linen ink (which mixed with the chocolate chip Stampin UP ink and gave the backgrounds a real cool red tint), and distressed the edges with scissors.  The die cuts are made with Spellbinders and the Cuttlebug.  The ribbon is from Archievers.

2S4Y challenge w/ Father’s Day Card

I have been away on vacation for a while and this is my first chance to sit down and create.  I needed to make my husband a Father’s Day card so I decided to do the 2S4Y challenge.

Father’s Day Card

This card started with the sketch from PolkaDoodles.  When I saw the intersecting lines I had an inspiration to “basket weave” the ribbon.  The blue and brown color scheme seemed masculine to me so I made a father’s day card.

I stamped the blue background with versa stamp watermark ink. The stamps are from Unity and the scalloped circle and rectangle cuts came from the Celebrations cartridges.  I used silver embossing powder on the stamps.  I used pop dots on the circle on raise it up.

I hope you like it.  Thanks for your feedback!
