You're my favorite dad

You're my favorite dad

Since Father's Day is this weekend, I thought I would show you the card I made for my dad.  Sometimes its hard to know what to use for a masculine card and my go-to is usually a brown and a blue color.

I started with the June 2022 Stencil of the month Groovy Grid.  Using my Stick and Stamp Mat and coordinating Blending Buddy, I placed my 4.25" x 5.25" white card panel in the middle, with the stencil on top.  I used my blending tools to add Simon Hurley Creates Grrr! and Clear Skies inks in a random panel over the stencil.

Then I cut the panel and a brown mat with some stitched rectangle dies from my stash.  I cut the dad from the center of my brown mat (since it will be covered by my panel).  

Next I cut out two of the smaller and one of the larger leaves from the Fabulous Florals set and ink blended some Clear Skies ink over them. I just used what was left on my brushes and did a light coat so that some of the white cardstock showed through as well.

For my companion sentiment, I stamped the You're my Favorite (from Super Sentimental) in Clear Skies in and cut it out with a stitched die from my stash.  To soften the white of the circle, I lightly blended some of the leftover Grrr! ink from my brush around the edges and along the edges of my dad letters (cut from an alphabet set in my stash).

After I matted the card panel and mat to my Precut A2 Card base, I used the Dad letters to line up my circle sentiment and leaves.  Finally, I added my DAD over the top of the leaves and just overlapping the bottom of my companion sentiment a bit.

Here is a look at my card one more time:

Thanks for joining me today.  Have a fabulous rest of the week and remember to create something everyday!
