Father's Day Card #1

Hey everyone! I spent Father's Day with my Dad prior to heading up to Alaska. However, I wanted to show case some of the cards I have done with images from The Digi Shack.

This image and sentiment are only $1 over at TDS! The ties are colored with Copic Markers and the stripes are accented with a black gel glaze pen. I printed out two sets of the three ties, colored one set and cut them out and popped them up with foam tape over the other. I love the 3D effect it gives on this card.

The kraft cardstock was embossed with the paid embossing folder from Provo Craft and then I swiped an ink pad over the top of the raised edges while it was still in the folder. I really like how it adds more dimension to the embossing.

I have one more card to show case as we count down to Father's Day, so stay tuned! As I gave my Dad his card at dinner his statement to the whole table was; "she's made another one!" He fully expects to get a handmade card from me and would be highly disappointed if I got him a store bought one! I find this a bit sweet and funny at the same time!

Thanks for stopping by and letting me know what you think!
