MOJO292 ~ Happy Father's Day ~
Happy Saturday morning to ya! Mother's Day is almost upon us and I find myself creating Father's Day cards???
I wish I could say I'm ahead... but the fact is... I'm not!!! **sigh**
Today's card features the MOJO Monday sketch and a new stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs . The card has a decidedly masculine feel and I even tried my hand at a sailor's knot... they are not nearly as complicated as they look! Whew!!! So here's the card...
and the stamp set,
I chose a cream colored card stock for my base and added a layer of distressed Kraft. The DPs are from a coordinating set... (love when the paper takes the guess work out of it...) I used Our Daily Bread Designs' Spellbinder custom die, Cathedral Window & Border Die (the border die) to cover the seam between the two DPs.
A small Spellbinder die provided the circle die which I topped with a nautical charm and sailor's knot. I placed the Kraft tag and other Kraft panel side by side before stamping my image. Then I removed the smaller piece and matted it with a bit of the cream colored CS. Another bit of this same CS provides my sentiment panel. I stamped both the image and sentiment with a rich brown ink... kinda reminds me of an old treasure map!
Thanks as always for stopping by... until next time... Blessings....
