I am a little late in posting these cards, but I thought I would still share them with you to show you the cards I gave to my grandpa and stepdad for Father's Day. I'll be posting my grandpa's card today and my stepdad's tomorrow.
Here is my grandpa's Father's Day card.
Here is a detail.
I was inspired by Nichole's card here. I cut the tree image out by hand and then distressed the edges with Tim Holtz's paper distresser. I added tea dye duo ink to the edges of the leaves panel and also to the inside of the card. I have been going through a phase with adding distressed elements to my cards lately. I just really like the look!
And the inside of the card.
I used a sentiment from PTI Father Knows Best and PTI Masculine Motifs. I stamped the leaves on scratch paper first, and stamped them a second time on the card, to give a lighter and more worn impression.
A special note about my grandpa... We kids grew up less than a mile away from grandpa and grandma, so they have played a huge role in our lives. They have been there through everything. My grandpa has been a big role model in my life and in my siblings' lives. We love him and appreciate him so much and feel lucky to have such a great grandpa.
I'll be posting another Father's Day card for my stepdad tomorrow. Would like for you to take a look if you get a chance.
Thanks for stopping by!
