Father's Day Card

by Joanne James14. June 2013 22:04

So today I can share the card I've made for my own Dad in readiness for Father's Day on Sunday. I've had the card made for over a week, but I couldn't be sure he wouldn't check out my blog as he does every once in a while and see it, so I've had to wait until I knew there was no chance of this happening. As he's at my house with my Mum visiting for the weekend, ready to celebrate Rebecca's birthday tomorrow, I know he won't be on the internet so there will be no chance he will see it before he receives it in person. Here is the finished card:

The layout is very similar to the Mother's Day card I made for my Mother-in-law which you can see here. For my Father's Day card, I used Island Indigo and the retiring Baja Breeze (these blues go so well together) and used some First Edition Designer Series Paper to highlight my typeset raised letters of the word 'Dad'. I also scored some border lines to each side of the panel for added definition. I offset this panel so that I could add some co-ordinating baker's twine and one of the large brushed nickel Basics Designer Buttons to finish off the card. I then created a Very Vanilla insert panel that I stamped with the 'Happy Father's Day' stamp from the Delightful Dozen stamp set.

I really like this card and have also made a version in red for a commission - a clean and classic style. I do have one last Father's Day card to share with you: the one I've made for my own husband from the James juniors, but for obvious reasons I won't be sharing this one until Sunday, although if we manage another two days without him seeing it or my youngest giving the game away it will be nothing short of a miracle!

Back tomorrow with a special birthday card to share. Until then, happy stampin'!
