Happy Father's Day!

Giving a "shout out" to dads today and sharing the card that I'll be giving my own dad.

Just a Couple Details:
  • I found this dapper dad stamp on a girls' craft weekend last fall and have been patiently waiting to create something with it. I really love the effect of stamping it onto ledger print paper...very vintagey! I added just a touch of Crushed Olive Distress Ink to accent the image here and there. 
  • All the patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Two "Breeze" 6x6 paper pad. The colors and patterns are perfect for masculine cards. I especially like the ruler paper for my dad...he's a crafty guy too and works with sheet metal and wood...things that definitely require the old adage "measure twice and cut once"!
