Father's Day Card

After you read this post don't forget to scroll down to find out about some fabulous blog candy from Elusive Images !!!!!!


This is a card I was asked to make by a friend and everything I used can be purchased from Graphicus, except for the base card and the brad which were already in my stash.

The background paper is from my Graphicus Guild paper pack (some fabulous papers in there) and I used a stamp from one of the exclusive Guild stamp plates to randomly stamp over it using Adirondack dye inks and I also blended inks over of the paper too. I also blended some inks over a smaller piece of the paper for the sentiment and a separate little tag that I cut from hammered card. I used Timber Brown Stazon to stamp the Happy Father's Day onto an acrylic tag, the fancy images onto some previously Glimmer Misted card and the sentiment.

I then cut out the swirly images, arranged them on my card and used 3D foam pads to attach them. I matted the sentiment and layered the card and acrylic tags together with the brad and attached them with different thicknesses of 3D foam pads.
