Happy Father's Day/cQc #141

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!

Supplies
stamps:  PTI--Masculine Motifs
paper:  PTI--S.S. White, Enchanted Evening, Blueberry Sky, Spring Rain
ink:  Versafine--Onyx Black
other:  Embossing Powder--Filigree Clear; Twine--The Twinery; Punch--E.K. Success; Embossing Folder--Cuttlebug

I love your CAS card Jill. It's funny how we sometimes think we own sets we don't actually have. Happens to me!- irma

Perfect masculine card, Jill! And I love the colors on that challenge. oh and I often do what you did...think I have something I didn't buy, LOL!

Michelle Philippi said...

LOL @ not actually having the set; silly girl!

Well I love this card...very CAS....but elegant just like all the rest of your cards.

Got my rings from Jen too - was kinda bummed that they weren't packaged like yours was. Not for me, moreso for the gal I had order with me, I told her and look at the packaging! Ah well. the ring is a beauty though.

Jill, this is such a clean and striking card. The image really pops against the white background and all the layers of blues. I always struggle with CAS .. this design is great, because I can add lots of colour in the background and still have a clean design on the front. Definitely going in my sketch book for future reference.

Fab card Jill. Had to laugh at your discovery but this card turned out great. Love all the layers and the striking design :)

Emma said...
