Best Dad Ever

Oh my…things are definitely shaking up around here.  I spent most of the weekend clearing out my "temporary" quarters in my studio so they could install the flooring today and tomorrow.  EVERYTHING had to come out of it AGAIN!  But they are working on it and it is looking great!  I'm going to be SO happy when it is done!  It looks great with the NEW painted walls!  But…all this moving and shuffling of stuff is really cramping my creativity and card making.  Well, that and the 130 wedding invitations and taxes that I'm working on, too!  But I do have a card to share that I did at the retreat a couple weekends ago!



This was another set that I hadn't opened and mounted.  I got it mainly because my father-in-law at one time had TONS of ties!  It just reminded me of him!  It does make a great masculine card…and I love the greetings in it!  So, I have an early start on my Father's Day cards!  lol!


I started with a base of Cajun Craze cardstock.  I layered on Well Worn Designer paper with a strip of Marina Mist cardstock tucked behind the top edge.  I added a piece of Soft Suede cardstock and adhered the Marina Mist 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon around to the back.  I stamped the ties with Cajun Craze ink on Very Vanilla, then colored the center polka dots with Marina Mist Stampin' Write Marker.  It is layered on Early Espresso cardstock.  Then I stamped the greeting on Marina Mist with Early Espresso ink and cut a "flag" on the right edge and placed a silver mini brad on the left side thru the Soft Suede layer underneath.


I really like the Well Worn Designer Paper and have discovered that I haven't used much of it.  I think the colors make it wonderful for masculine cards!  Hope you enjoyed it, too!

Thank you for the inspiration – I don't have this set (none of the guys in my family wear ties!)…but I can use another stamp or two to create something wonderful.     Hope the flooring gets done soon and you can take over your room again.    Good luck!
