Special DAD

Today I’m sharing the Father’s Day card I made for our son.  I hesitate this is his first Father’s Day.  It may be his first biological Father’s Day;  as he’s a wonderful step-dad – his dad and I are so proud of him.

My son is a HUGE Tarheel fan and always gravitates to the pale blue color so it was a no brainer what color I’d make his card.  No DP anywhere on this card – pretty unusual for me.  The embossing gives the card all of the texture and detail that it needs.

I’m using a LOTV stamp. I puchased a few of the masculine stamps that came out a couple of months ago and just haven’t gotten around to using them all yet.  So many stamps and just not enough time to play with them all!

I made this card so it has a side opening.  The stamp and sentiment are popped up with foam dots which allows the flap to be held down.  Here’s how the card looks opened:

This is the sentiment I used for the inside of the card:

I wish I could remember where I purchased the cattail image from so I can give credit to it’s creator – I purchased this one before I started to organize my images.  If anyone knows who it is, I’d love share it with everyone.  I took the image and made a mirror image to make the design.  I found the sentiment on-line here.

Thanks for stopping by!  Dee
