Simple Father's Day Card

Today I have a super simple card for you. I started by inking the Dad stamp from Father Figure with Bordering Blue and then adding Night of Navy to just the bottom 1/2 of the stamp for a two-toned effect. Next I stamped the I'm so proud to call you... above the Dad and then sponged the edges with Ranger Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Next I took a scrap of Buckaroo Blue cardstock and stamped the row of three stars stamp from Starlight Starbright Remixed across the top and bottom of the panel and then sponged all the edges with Vintage Photo. I pulled out a center finding ruler and marked three holes equidistant across the bottom of the panel and punched holes with my crop-a-dile. I used Pewter We R Memory Keeper jumbo eyelets and then matted the panel on a piece of Classic Cream cardstock completely sponged with the Vintage Photo distress ink. I finished off by matting on a 4.25" square Classic Cream card base. It's not my usual style, but I really love the way it turned out. :)

Be sure to check out the sale going on at Verve - now through June 23 select sentiment sets (including the two sets I used on this card) are 10% off. Plus we've got clearance markdowns on all our non-stamp merchandise.
