A Good Man - Faux Leather

Happy Thursday! The weekend is almost here! I wanted to share a card I created last week using ODBD's Father's Day set. I know Father's Day won't be here until June but when inspiration strikes... ya just gotta go with it!

Here's the final product...



The base is kraft card stock with a heavily distressed green matting. I embossed the brown card stock using a Sizzix folder. After dry embossing, I inked up my brayer with Versamark Watermark Ink and rolled it over the embossed paper. Once the raised pattern was inked, I sprinkled it all with clear embossing powder, shaking off all excess. I then used a heat gun to emboss those areas. I stamped the image with Memento Rich Cocoa on kraft paper and embossed with a Spellbinder die, inking all edges. A Cheery Lynn Designs die gives the illusion of foliage. I then cut three flower cuts from Chricut's Flower Shoppe cart. Each cut had four petals until I removed one and glued it together. Now I have flowers that look like trillium one of my new favorite wildflowers! A few bits of Flowersoft finish off the centers! Thanks for visiting and don't forget to stop back by Saturday to see what next week's Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge will be! It will be fun!

Blessings...
