Sail Away~Happy Father’s Day!!

Happy Father’s Day to all you special Father’s out there today. Yes there are some that follow my blog. Even some stamper’s!! Isn’t that wonderful?

Sail Away Father's Day Card 002

I made this card for my Husband early this morning …don't know if you can tell but it has the world stamped behind the vellum image. If I could give him something special it would be a trip around the world…but of course I can’t so this card will have to suffice for now! hehe

I stamped the image on cardstock Vellum and flipped it over after drying. Then I took my stylus and rubbed it across the sales which give it a weathered white look. Very pretty in person. I mounted that on Baja after stamping my world in Basic Gray. I stamped the background stamp from Best Dad Ever on the card base of Basic Gray to give a feel of texture. I then punched some holes in the side of the baja and vellum to hold together and threaded some white baker’s twine through. I really wanted to tie some nautical knots on there but he caught me in the process of making this and they just didn’t happen.

Wishing my Hubby and Son Chad a very Happy Father’s Day and the same to all the other wonderful Dad’s out there.

Have a fabulous Day and see you next time.
