It's Dad's Time!

So, it's typical. I prepare lots of stuff for class, including Father's Day projects, and I don't have anything prepared for my own father. *eye roll* So I quickly put one together so I could get it in the mail. I hadn't really done anything with the car image in Sentimental Journey, and my dad did spend plenty of time fixing cars in his day, so off we go...

I CASED the layout from 'RDiehl' on SCS. I stamped the car in Night of Navy, and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Kit #4 Texturz plate.

The background was spritzed with the Log Cabin Smooch Spritz - love that stuff! Don't those look like little oil spots? I used the Cog punch for an extra little embellishment.

Travel Journal DSP has nice map patterns, and I am such a sucker for maps! I actually bought myself a globe when I was a freshman in college. But maybe that's too much information! Anyway, I'm really digging the paper. In fact, there is a used library book sale on Friday (today!) locally, and I can't wait to pick up a bunch of paperbacks and maps for crafting. But don't tell anyone so I can buy them all up first! ;)

Stamps: Sentimental Journey, Teeny Tiny Wishes; Paper: Night of Navy, Kraft, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Travel Journal DSP; Ink: Night of Navy, Sahara Sand; Accessories: Sponge, Cog punch, Word Window punch, Modern Label punch, 5/16" brad, Night of Navy ribbon, Pumpkin Pie ribbon, Log Cabin Smooch Spritz, Kit #4 Texturz plate, Big Shot, Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!

Great card! I love all the rustic touches to make it more masculine.

Very nice masucline card! I find them to be pretty tough, but you have done a great job with this one. The cog is great for this type of card.

I love all of the different elements on this card. I know what you mean, I did a Father's Day card in my April and May classes, but didn't get mine in the mail until yesterday. Of course, I want to make a different one for my husband since he's already seen the other one. Why do we do this to ourselves?...

The color combo is really vibrant. I log the ribbon and the texture of the entire card --- it adds so much

Awesome! I am the worst at actually giving cards to people, despite making a load and having heaps on hand! I really like the 'oil' spots on the background - gives it a very masculine feel.
