I was all set to make my dad's Father's Day card this week. I was only sure of two things: I would use PTI's Father Knows Best for the stamps, and the color scheme would be white, brown, and red. So . . . I sit down to make the card and run into a problem. I don't actually own Father Knows Best. Yeah, I've thought about it so much that I guess I just kind of bought it by osmosis? :-> Hee! This slight complication leads me online to look at some blogs and get some new inspiration. I visit Joyce at Cards-by-the-Sea, and WOW, the colourQ color palette she used on her cool Shine card grabs me! So I rethink everything, check to make sure I have Masculine Motifs, and adopt colourQ's challenge #141 as my colors. Here's their perfect masculine palette:
Love it! And here's my revised Father's Day card:
It's sort of CAS, and some the layers are popped up with dimensionals, the highest of which is under the globe. I used a herringbone embossing folder on the white card front. It sort of looks like chevrons in the photo, which is kind of cool. :-) I hope those of you lucky enough to celebrate this Sunday with your dad have a fun and blessed day!
