#1 Dad


Here is a card I made recently for an order. It was for a gentleman turning 70 who enjoys a weekly bike ride, swimming and generally loving his family time.
I chose to make him a fancy fold card, one I'd not made in a while. The card is a 6x6 navy blue card base and to it I have added lots of papers and elements from Kaisercraft papers out of the Barber Shoppe collection.

I ran some parts through embossing folders and all elements were inked with Brushed Corduroy distress ink.

I used stamps and dies from the Simply Amazing set by Verve.  Everything linked up including the pearls in powder blue and black.

This card is for his daughter to give and she calls him her Number One Dad. I used this cute Garden Of Love Bestie I coloured her in using my Promarker pens however I did add after taking this photo a banner saying "number 1 Dad", sorry for not showing that.

This man IS a real gentleman so this had to be added to the card. You can just see the verse on the right of this card.

Well thanks so much for stopping by again today, please leave a comment as I love to read them.

I am entering this card in the following challenges
