Father's Day 2012

This is the card I made for my dad and father-in-law for Father's Day. Last year I did something that had more of a vintage vibe, so I went in the opposite direction and kept this clean and modern looking. I used A Little Argyle in Really Rust and Basic Black ink to create the pattern along the bottom. I am seriously loving that stamp set and have to restrain myself from adding argyle to everything lately. Ha! The word "dad" was die cut out of Blue Bayou card stock and then I added a bit of black embroidery floss.

This is the version I made for my two grandfathers. The Crumb Cake layer was impressed with my Linen and Canvas impression plate and also sponged around the edges. I used twine instead of embroidery floss as well.

Thanks for stopping by and happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!
