Er, Happy Fathers Day!

Saturday, 25 June 2011

A little late you may think, but the card was made and given on time! Lol

Here it is...


I saw a tutorial for the centre step card on the Split-Coast Stamper site, so I thought I’d do one of those. Here’s a side view


The oh-so-cute image is from LOTV called Dad’s the word. Coloured with copics and prismacolour pencils.


The paper’s I used are from the Basic Grey Archaic pad. The sentiments are a whimsy ticket stamp and “Happy Father’s Day” was computer generated using the font Boomerang.


The buttons are from a Basic Grey pack and the twine is from The Ribbon Girl. When I saw the wee hammer charm I just had to use it – when I was young and still living at home, I decided to build a stud wall partition in my bedroom. I borrowed my da’s hammer and some time after I had finished, the hammer was not to be found. My da said that I had enclosed the hammer inside my wall, but I couldn’t understand how I could’ve done so when I needed the hammer to finish the wall!! It eventually turned up somewhere unexpected – not inside the wall! Lol

He picked up on that when he saw the card!


Here’s the inside with a LOTV sentiment.
