Just a quick card I wanted to share with you before it goes in the post ;-) A Father’s Day card for my Father in Law. My Dad passed away a few years ago ;( so only one Father’s Day card to show…
I got really emotional when I made this card. And the sentiment really says it all…
I again used a sketch from One Stop Craft Challenge #84. I just love this sketch, it really works for me. I’m sure I will be using it lots and lots! Lol ;)
The papers I used are K&Co, mixed with cork scrabble like letters (my F-I-L looooves scrabble!) resting cosily in the TH ornate plate, lots of TH distress inks, machine stitching (my fav technique at the moment, just can't live without my new sewing machine!), some screws brads and a couple of real sprockets from a clock bought in a flea market (exactly for that purpose lol!).
The quote sentiment was designed by Raindrop Echo for Whimsy stamps. And the “Father’s Day” image is a courtesy of Cathe Holden at Just Something I Made. I discovered this blog recently and highly recommend, it’s fantastic! It’s full of lovely vintage images ready to download ;-)))). Make sure you have a look at Cathe’s DIY projects, it’s full of really great ideas!
