Happy Father's Day

Last week, I featured a card in a blog hop.  I created the card with my dad in mind, but did not realize until after the hop, that it would be the perfect Father's Day card for him.  My dad is such a dog spoiler with treats!  So this morning, I was blessed to be able to hand-deliver this card to my dad at breakfast and was touched by his reaction at seeing his card... it was something that I will forever hold dear to my heart!  I love you, Daddy!!!  xoxo

Bella & Friends meets Jar of Love and Dragonfly Dreams

Bella reminds me a lot of my furbrother, Fluffy.  So I opted not to add any coloring other than the collar and the bone.  The jar was stamped off with Tranquil Tide onto vellum cardstock and watercolor washed lightly on the reverse side after I cut it out using the coordinating framelit.  I used my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to stamp the bone multiple times which were fussy cut and  watercolored with Crumb Cake on the reverse side.  The jar and bones were attached to the card by lightly sponging Tombow Aqua Glue onto the vellum.  The lid was stamped with Crumb Cake on to mimic the metallic finish of the lids of so many canning jars and cut out with the coordinating framelit.  Stampin' Dimensionals were used to adhere this layer to the card.

For the sentiment, I used the burlap stamp in the same stamp set and stamped it off followed by the sentiment. It was trimmed with my paper trimmer and adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.  The finishing touch is the 3/8" Burlap Ribbon which I had cut into three different widths.  I love being able to use this ribbon in four different ways!  The trimmed ribbon was adhered to the cardstock with Tear & Tape Adhesive and hand trimmed with paper snips.

I hope this helped spark your creativity!

Have a blessed day with all the men in your lives!
