Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all dads. I lost mine 16 years ago and still miss him so much. I was thinking of my dad when I made this card. He was a roofer his entire life and always had a hammer with him.

This stamp was purchased from the Our Daily Bread booth at the recent stamp show I attended and is appropriately named Father's Day Tools. After stamping some kraft CS, I colored the images with markers and cut the panel with SSS Stitched Rectangle dies. I adhered it to a brown mat and added a tool brad. A piece of  kraft CS was embossed with a woodgrain EF. I then added brown ink over the raised areas of the embossed piece. Fun foam is adhered between the embossed card base and the tool panel. 

I am adding this to the Crazy 4 Challenges: C4C290 which is to make a masculine card.

I hope you all have a wonderful day with your dads, if you are fortunate enough to still have them with you. Enjoy!



  1. My dad passed away, under most unexpected circumstances, on Dec. 30, 2014 (nearly 6 months ago) on my parents' 56 Wedding Anniversary. My head still swirls just thinking about the entire episode...anyway, I know exactly how you feel, so I'm sending you some BIG virtual hugs in hopes that they'll bring you comfort. SQUEEZE...there you go...repeat as necessary! Your card: fabulous and it has all the more impact because you had your dad in mind when you created it...
