I'd like to wish all the dads out there
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!
The classic image of a Canada goose is perfect for a masculine card. Working together with the "watercolor" swaths from Work of Art in green and blue (Pear Pizzazz and Marina Mist) and black heat embossing, gives this card a simple and elegant look.
The following image shows off the embossing a bit better than the previous one.
It is sort of funny how this card actually came to be.
I had set out bound for my Creation Station with the intention of making Father's Day cards for my dad and my husband. Besides intending to make two masculine cards, there was only one other thing that I surely wanted to incorporate into the card.
I know. I know. I've been on something of a kleenex box kick lately. BUT, I had in my grubby little paws these two beautiful understated boxes in gorgeous shades of green and blue. And, by golly, I was going to use them in these masculine cards!
The two kleenex box colors coordinated beautifully with Stampin' Up!'s Marina Mist and Pear Pizzazz. Hmmm. What to do with Marina Mist and Pear Pizzazz and two strips cut from kleenex boxes. Riffling through my stamp sets, I first came upon one that . . . no. Hmm, how about this one? Uh uh. Aha! A Canada goose!
And so that's what I did.
I truly love the effective simplicity of this Father's Day card.
When making Father's Day cards, do you tend to lean towards the more serious, as I did, or something a tad more humorous?
