It's been a while since I've posted due to family illness, but I couldn't let
Father's Day go by without posting the card I made for my Dad using a fab
new stencil I received for my birthday. It's
the large stripes are just perfect for masculine cards. It's an easy
way to create a quick background which can end up being quite
striking, depending on the colour used - here I used Ranger
Distress Evergreen Bough for sponging. The Bible verse is a
Verve Plain Jane and the "blessed" die-cut was created using a die
from Papertrey Ink's Counting My Blessings set.
The stars were cut using Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Stars Dies.
I don't often use sequins on a man's card but it just needed something
to "lift" or give a hint of sparkle around the dark stars.
This verse is perfect for my Dad - he has been such an example to
me, trusting in the Lord through both good times and bad times.
Blessed means happy in a deep foundational way, not a superficial
happiness based on circumstances - my Dad's trust in His
God has been a blessing to our entire family.
I know Father's Day can be a difficult holiday if you've lost your
Dad through circumstances or death and my thoughts are
with those who have. Thanks for stopping by my blog
today - I hope I'll be able to post more regularly very soon!
Bridget, so good to see you posting one of your beautiful cards again!
Hoping everything is ok there.
lovely card mf...love the bold, graphic look of it!
How wonderful this card is for your dad Bridget. I am sure he enjoyed it immensely. I pray the illnesses are not serious. I will pray for you and your family.
Hugs and Blessings
