JAI #230: Just Add Dad

Hi!

This week at Just Add Ink we have a bit of an obvious, but still very fun, theme for our challenge this wee.  We want you to Just Add Dad!  Yes, with Father's Day in a couple of days we want you to show us what you've made.  If you don't celebrate Father's Day a male card would be fine too.


I made this card for Rob for Father's Day.  His favourite colours are red, white and black because his favourite footy team is the St George Dragons.  I went for a few retired items on the card too, including the Real Red Coredinations cardstock and the For My Family stamp set.


I've also used a lot of new stuff, like the Typeset SDSP and the Point & Click photopolymer stamp set.  Rob loves maps, so I deliberately chose the map page from the Typeset SDSP pack.


I love this little star cluster and the way it highlights the inside sentiment.  The sentiment is from the Just Sayin' stamp set, but I chose to use a different word bubble that the one it was in.  I used my Real Red marker to selectively colour the stamp to just use the words and then used the speech bubble from Point & Click to frame it.  Love the photopolymer stamps for easy placement!

Can't wait to see what you've all come up with for the males in your life! See you over at Just Add Ink.

Bye for now,

Tina

  2. Really like this card Tina. The colours are such a nice contrast, and I like the embossed panel with the greeting layed over it. The inside is super cool too.
