Happy Father's Day! I'm celebrating my father-in-law and remembering my dad today. We are taking my FIL to our cabin for a relaxing day of visiting and cooking out.
I made this card for him. This is such a cute set and I thought about this card all day yesterday. It should have been a super easy card to create, right? Well it is if you use the right inks. I thought at first that I'd use Catherine Pooler inks, but they were too juicy and the patterns on the stamps were lost. (And I did give them the "love taps" she suggests!) I think this finished panel is my third try! So then I moved on to inks by SSS, PTI, and Altenew. These worked much better. And the bowties came to life when I stamped the black creases on them. Such a cute image! I die cut both the stamped panel and black panel with MFT's stitched rectangle dies. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder on black cardstock.
I hope you have a very nice day with your loved ones! Here's a picture of my dad and me in 1986 at my friend's wedding (I was a bridesmaid). It was the last photo we took together. He passed away in 1994 from complications of Alzheimer's. Miss him so much every day!
Thanks for stopping by!
