Father’s Day is in two days. I realized that life has gotten away from me again and I haven’t made cards for my father or my father in law. EEK! This is the card for my father.



Size: Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started by die cutting a stitched square from water color paper. I ink smooshed some Crushed Olive and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks on the panel. I also flicked some water droplets on the ink to create more texture. After the ink had dried, I used the Grassy Border Die to create a mask. I ink blended some of the same distress inks on near the edge of the mask to make some grass for my bears. The bears are water colored with Distress Inks and fussy cut out. I stamped the sentiment on the bottom of the panel and adhered the bears. Then I prepared my card base. I cut it, scored it, folded it, stamped the sentiment on the inside, and added the date and blog on the back. Then disaster struck! I dropped it on my black ink pad.  I almost cried, and then I thought up plan B. I stamped the card base with the funny glasses and offset my panel to cover the extra ink. I popped the panel up on fun foam and called it a day.
