Ribbon Fans: SUPER September Special
Boy's Birthday Card

Fathers' Day Card

Hello again.  We caught up with my dad last weekend and celebrated Fathers' Day along with some family birthdays so I can show you the card I made him.


Fathers-day-card The Recipe:

Stamp Set:  Greetings Eight (I cut the extra words off the stamped 'dad' image for a simpler look.

Cardstock: The base card is that lovely coverweight Sweet Slumber Specialty (pg 133.) 

The coordinating cardstock I've used is Baja Breeze, So Saffron and Riding Hood Red. 

Ink: Riding Hood Red for the greeting and some sponging with the red and Baja Breeze. 

Other:  Baja Breeze 1" ribbon, sponge daubers, Stampin' Dimensional foam tabs of course.

Quite a quick and simple one to put together but I like it.

(And don't you love the wrapping on the gift?  Got it wrapped at the store and must give that idea a try.   Just some plain brown paper, a strip of white and a decorative ribbon.  The gift store was Red Bird in Keilor - I just love having a browse through their store.  Lovely things there.)

Anyway I digress - back to the card!

I like the extra depth a bit of sponging gives to some layers.


The inside looked a tad messy! So I added some cardstock panels - much neater now!

Happy Fathers' Day dad!

Love Sue  (oops, better make that Susan for dad!)
