Father's Day Card

Clues in the title lol, I'm not a natural card marker in fact I find it very difficult to create something I'm happy with but this card I made for my step-dad is my exception. Even though it took me the best part of 2 hours to make (I know, I'm very slow) I was really happy with the outcome.


Now Roger (my step-dad) enjoys pottering about in the garden as do I and my Mom so I thought these garden image stamps from Woodware would be perfect. I stamped the apron, watering can and wellies onto WHS Watercolour paper and coloured them using Derwent pencils and my aquaflo pen. Mounted them onto papers from Basic Grey's Archaic range, added some brads and popped onto the front of the card. The 'For Father's Day' sentiment was done with my Crafters Workshop template, Joyful Letters and made to look like they were falling from the watering can.




Right, time I wasn't here as I promised my youngest son that we could go on a bike ride through the park and no doubt on the way I'll be stung for pennies at the shop :) xxx

Lovely card and it shows that you put the time into it...I think quite a few of us take ages with some cards especially those that are for someone special...looking through your blog, I love your photographs of the flower show, that hobbit garden is something else, very inspirational... :-D
