Best Dad Ever

Hello all! I completed this Father's Day card for the Diva Dare challenge going on at Verve. I just got some of the new April release stamps in the mail and just had to play around a bit! The challenge is to use chipboard, corrugated cardboard, or kraft on your creation. I chose to use kraft cardstock.

 I used Ranger Archival Ink to ink up the stamps from the Super Dad set. Loving the new ribbon banner die that goes with it!!!  I cut up some smaller banners using the same die and then ran them through an embossing folder to give them a bit of manly plaid texture. 

Designer paper is from my stash that I colored red using the fired brick distress stain. Button is from American crafts and the self adhesive black pearls are from Kaisercraft.

 Thanks for stopping by!
