Dad

This is another of the cards that I made so that my Son would be able to choose which one he wanted to give his Dad - this is the one that he chose.

I used a piece of cardboard packaging, I just stripped back some of the outer coating.  The papers are from my stash with a torn edge, I also added distress ink to the edges of everything.


I saw this design on Pinterest, I'm sorry I can't find it again to link to it - I had the JustRite Stacking Sentiment stamps so I decided to CASE it.


I coloured the string to match and decorated the inside.


Thank you for popping in today.

I've been absent due to a holiday abroad, but I did check out all you've shown on your blog during my absence. Wow. So many styles and cards for different occasions. I really like the style you've opted for here, kind of shabby chic a la masculine. Great job!

Kathleen said...

I have no idea why but this reminds me a Western feel, as in Cowboys and Indians. Great sentiment.
