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-in-law.
Size: Vertical top fold A2 card
Extra Details: I started by die cutting a stitched square from water color paper. I ink smooshed some Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Inks on the panel. I also flicked some water droplets on the ink to create more texture. The bears and other images 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 realized I had stamped everything for a vertical card when I had made my panel for a horizontal card. So I just added a line of fish at the top on bottom of the card base. I popped the panel up on fun foam and called it a day.
