Father's Day Wishes card

  Hello and Happy Father's Day! 
I finally finished my last Father's Day card a few days ago for this year's special day for dads.  I thought today would be the perfect day to share it with you. You can find my other 2 cards here and here
Today's card layout was inspired by a recent Gina K Designs tutorial found here.
I kept the layer colors for this card very masculine. I used my score board to add some dimension to the card stock and stamped the sentiment on vellum.
I popped up the deer image with some dimensional adhesive to help it stand out. I found this stamp in the $1.00 bin at JoAnn fabrics and fussy cut it. I ran a dark colored marker around the edges to mask any white space and the background piece was cut from a spellbinder, while still in the nestibilitie I colored the background using Tim Holtz distress stain and then stamped on top with another $1.00 stamp with sage green ink.


So that's my last Father's day card but I do have one more card to show you. I made this card a few months ago using a tutorial I saw on the Top Tip Tuesday Challenge Blog. The link to the tutorial is on my tutorial tab at the top. I made a few of the cards without using any sentiments so that I could personalize them as needed. 

I thought I would show you one I finally personalized.


Well, I hope you've enjoyed joining me in my Father's Day card making frenzy this last week and I hope you find time to spend with loved ones today and always find time to make something beautiful!

Love both your cards, but especially the one with the deer! I can't believe those stamps were just $1. You did a great job fussy-cutting, too. Thanks so much for sharing these!
