On to my creation! I decided for the guy in my life to keep it simple and bold at the same time so... I started with a pad of fun decorative paper and this is what I came up with!
I grabbed my Memento Nautical Blue Ink Pad and found that it was pretty much a perfect match to the Teresa Collins Designs Now and Then Paper pack. I stamped the father and son playing football from the Father's Day stamp set using this ink on one of the paper pack's wood grain designs. Love that! Then, I used Spellbinders Classic Circles LG, cut, embossed and sanded. After that, I matted it onto the Blossom die cut shape. From there, I used Spellbinders Lacey Nested Pennants to create the little flags at the bottom of my main image. Add some twine and a sentiment from the set and.... ta da! I matted it all on a piece of Flourishes Classic Ivory card stock for my card base and... all done - an easy, peasy card just in time for Father's Day!
Here's a close up!
Hope that served as a wee bit of inspiration for those man cards you might have to make in the coming weeks! The Senior Design Team is picking any set in our Flourishes Stamp Collection and showing off their masculine designs to you today. I know you'll be inspired and come away with some great manly ideas!
