Father's Day

Morning all.  I will admit to being in a bit of a rush with this morning's Cardz4guyz post.  I thought I was fairly up to date with my DT cards but this one slipped past me.  The theme is 'Father's Day' and, instead of making a card, I was busy doing my Dad proud on the cricket pitch!  My love of cricket comes from my Dad and it's something we can share.  I wish he'd been there to see me take my first hat trick (it will probably be my only one to be fair) as a bowler on Sunday.  Anyway, when I finally got back to the craft room panic set in and I needed a fairly simple and quick card.  I found a set of Father's Day stamps that came free in a magazine about a million years ago.  It does stamp beautifully so I may use it again.  I stamped it in peeled paint distress ink and coloured it in promarkers - going for a sort of ombre effect.  Once I'd done that it looked so plain I tried stamping some stars to add some interest.  Well, that was a disaster!  In the end I found some equally ancient star brads and added them instead.  The one thing I can say for being late with a card, it makes you use your stash up instead of buying more.

Here's the result.

It's a little more 'stripped back' than my usual stuff.  I'm pretty pleased with it but I keep thinking it's too plain.  What do you think?

Please pop over and join in the fun.  I would love to see what you come up with.

Thanks for reading.

  3. A super masculine design Dawn, I don't think we need to add lots to a masculine make.

  4. Congrats on your cricket hat-trick Dawn, i also got my love of cricket from my dad and i used to play when younger & the body allowed, i just go and support my brother on the pitch now. Your card is ideal and great to use up some old stash at the same time. Emmax

  5. A perfect card for Father’s Day, sometimes less is more.
