What's it like where you are? It's cold and rainy here. Pretty miserable for a Sunday afternoon. We have nothing urgent to do and nowhere to be this afternoon, so we're having a DVD session, all cuddled up on the sofa. As it's another Disney film that the children have chosen, I'm cuddled up to them and my netbook, hee hee. We'll be playing board games after the film has finished, so I'm not feeling too guilty.
I had chance this morning to get ahead of the game with my Fathers' Day card for my lovely dad. How organised is that, with a week to go? I've bought his present too.......impressed? OK, here's his card- no Promarkers for once!
I went for a bit of a colour scheme first and picked the paper and ribbon. My Dad can be a bit difficult to make for- I usually end up with something sporty, so I wanted something a bit different this year. I love the little truck set from Stampin' Up, it comes with lots of different things to put in the back, and different people to drive it, so it's very versatile. I went for loads of love with a big boot full of hearts.
I wanted a gentler look, so I used Distress Inks and blended round the main image card, then used some more Distress Inks to watercolour both images.
The punch on the checked paper is a Stampin' Up one, and it's fab, so useful. The truck and the sentiment are raised slightly on 3D foam pads, and I added a touch of Glossy Accents to the doors, windows and hearts to make them pop out a bit.
