Stamptacular Sunday - Fabulous Fathers

Wednesday, 17 June 2009
Another day and another challenge that I've participated in! I needed to get my Father's Day card finished by tomorrow as my dad is off on his hols on Saturday and tomorrow is the last day that I will see him. The stamp that I've used for this card was made just for my dad and I knew the minute I saw it on the Elzybells site that I had to get it! The card also fits with this weeks Stamptacular Sunday which is to make something for our fabulous fathers.

Stamps: Snoozing Ted & Take it Easy - Elzybells - Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black & Copics
CS: Bazzill Basics, Doodlebug Design Paper Potpourri DP
Tools: Swiss Dots CB folder, Label 2 Nestabilities, Fiskars Threading Water border punch
Embellishments: Ribbon - Stash, Gems - Papermania

I'm a bit worried that it looks too feminine for a guy so am not totally impressed with it. I would really appreciate any comments and suggests you may have.

    I don't think this is too feminine, it's just perfect. I love the dotty blue paper, it goes so well with the swiss dots.

    Hi Sarah, I love the cute image and how you have left your nestie on the image while you did the background, I think it gives a fab framing effect. Thanks for joining us at SSC.

    Not at all feminine, I love the Elzybells image and I think the colour is perfect for a dad card.

  1. Hi Sarah,

    What an absolutely adorable card! Love that you used polka-dot embossing and then mimicked it above with the polka-dotted pattern paper! Great effect! I don't think it looks too feminine at fact your color choice is perfect for a man and your design isn't frilly worries! Just my two cents...

    Thanks for playing along with us this week at Stamptacular!
