To my Husband

Hi guys. It's Father's Day today and I thought I'd share a card I made for the occasion. This one isn't actually for MY father, but for my husband...but he's a dad...so it totally counts. :)

I decided to try a bit of a new style. I've always loved stamping...but for some occasions I just don't have the right stamps. And so I decided to use my printer and print out a sentiment instead...

I had some beautiful sparkly (or shiny) grey cardstock that I used for my background. It keeps it from being boring. I also added a strip of black paper on the left which I embossed with one of the border folders from the Cuttlebug "Just My Type" folder set. It adds a bit of texture to the card, which I always love.

So here's my card. Masculine cards are always the most difficult ones for me to make...but I'm loving how this one turned out. :)



Thanks for dropping by. Have a great and Godly day! :)
