Hi friends! Today is Father's Day and I wish a very happy one to all the dads out there as well as the men who act as dads to those without one. In honor of the day, I made this card for my own Dad using just about everything Tim Holtz.
First, I began with a cardstock base of Frayed Burlap paper. I then adhered a piece of paper from the Wallflower collection. I highlighted the paper with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, the rays stencil, and Golden's Pearl Mica Flake for sparkle. A bit of cheesecloth was tucked under the Spring Greenery diecut leaf branches cut from Crowded Attic paper. The Bird Silhouette was diecut also from Crowded Attic, inked with shades of Tumbled Glass, Vintage Photo, and Black Soot, and attached with foam dots. Using Crowded Attic stickers and foam dots, I spelled out the word "DAD" in the upper left corner. The rhinestones in the lower right corner are from Recollections. Of course, I couldn't resist adding a little bow to the bird!
My Dad really liked this card which made me happy. I struggle making masculine cards, but I did enjoy this one.
Have a wonderful day and week ahead! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and also for your sweet comments. It's hot and humid again here today, so I'm wherever it's cool!
