Happy Monday. I was late getting my Father's Day card ideas, but they are now in the mail! I used a combination of New and Retired Stampin' Up products to complete my card.
I think the centerpiece of the card is this bow tie, created from the new Smoky Slate Chevron ribbon. It's luscious! I folded the ends of a 5" strip to the center and used glue dots to hold the ends down. Then I wrapped a piece of Basic Gray stitched ribbon around the middle (after taking one stitch with needle and thread to gather it). Done!
"Happy", "Father's" and "Day" were each inked separately to read vertically rather than horizontally. The stamp is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and stamped in Basic Gray. The frame for the sentiment is the New Label Love stamp set and stamped in Smoky Slate ink onto Smoky Slate card stock. The background for my sentiment and bow tie is from the Retired Beyond Plaid stamp set. This set wasn't around long enough! I bought it specifically with Father's Day in mind, but then it retired :-( I will be keeping it long enough to get some good use out of it! I stamped it in Smoky Slate onto Whisper White for the perfect frame.
I hope you enjoyed looking at my card today and that you are inspired! Won't you leave me a comment? I love to read them all.
Don't forget that TOMORROW is the Pals Blog Hop! You will see many ideas for how to use your Stampin' Up! Products! I'm so excited--see you then!
