Best Dad

This is one of the cards that I made for my sons to give their Dad for Father's Day.  I was a bit pushed for time this year so I used the Docrafts Papermania Mr. Mister Collection.


I used a die cut decoupage image but ended up having to trim it quite a lot!


I used my Crafter's Companion Textures Embossing Folder to emboss the background and fussy cut a couple of sections from the map papers in the collection.  I inked the edges of the papers and embossed panel and also decorated the inside of the card.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Brown Sugar Challenge 203 - Father's Day
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - World Traveler
Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 166 - For a Special Man
Try It On Tuesday Challenge - It's All About Him
The Male Room Challenge 37 - Theme:  Father's Day

Thank you for visiting today, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.
