First off, I want to wish a very special birthday to my Dad!
He's one of the best men on the planet, and I'm so proud to be his daughter.
Here's the card I made for him.
I was wracking my brain for an image, since I don't have any particularly masculine stamps. I started searching the internet for appropriate digi stamps, and on a whim thought I'd check out printable coloring pages, since they're free. I found this one, and thought it was perfect.
I printed it out on GP cardstock and colored it in with Copic markers. It took a lot of colors and a lot of work to get it to look right. I'm still not completely happy with it -- it's a lot harder to color water and rocks than I thought!
To assemble my card, I folded some gray Bazzill cardstock into a standard sized card, then added a scrap of blue paper from Basic Grey's Marrakech collection. I mounted my image on another piece of matching cardstock and popped it up with dimensional adhesive.
I wrapped a bit of embroidery thread around the card three times and tied it into a little bow. Then I stamped my sentiment from Hampton Arts, trimming the edges into a banner shape. I added a scrap of gray cardstock behind that and trimmed it to echo the banner. I attached that directly to the card.
And that's it!
Parent/Teacher conferences tonight, so I gotta run!
Hope you're all doing well!
