Father's Galore

Using an image from the days of yore does not imply that your father is ancient, but that he is older than you and always will be! Laugh and celebrate the wonderful memories that you share. What do you think? 

   Feeling Sentimental
   All Year Cheer II

   Gable Green A-2, 3-3/4 x 4
   Green Galore 5-1/4 x 4
   Basic White 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)

   Archival Basic Black
   Green Galore

   Dry Embossing

   1/2" Green & Blue Ribbon (2)
   Sizzix Ellison Embossing Folder
   Archival Black Pen 005

First, I dry embossed the bottom of the Green Galore panel.

I then sponged it to accentuate the embossing.

I drew a black line on the top of the embossing to represent a road.

Next, I used a stamp-a-ma-jig to align my stamp for a precise placement. I stamped the image and then the sentiment.

I added ribbon on the top and bottom of the panel.

I then adhered the panel onto the card base, and added the Basic White panel to the inside of the card.

  1. I like the texture you created by dry embossing!

    1. Thank you, Fonda. I too like the dry embossing, but I also felt that I needed to sponge it in order to highlight it. I appreciate you stopping by here and taking the time to comment.

  2. That is a great image for a father's day card. I love the layout and color you used too. That is a great way to add ribbon without adding bulk to a card.

    1. I agree, Lisa. I also had only a bit left to finish off this ribbon, so stretching it across the card was my best option. Thank you so very much, Lisa for taking the time to visit and comment. Much appreciated.

  3. I love that image for a Father's Day card. Lovely card.

    1. Thank you, Sharon. I really like these images of yore. Thank you so much for stopping to visit and share. I hope to find time to begin to blog again.
