Father's Day

Next Sunday is Father's Day here in New Zealand and I needed a card for my dad.  Unfortunately this weekend was proving to be a mojo-less time in my craft room.  So here we are, Sunday evening and I finally have a finished card.  It's very simple but I think it will appeal to my dad.

I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches as the starting point for my card.  I love the clean lines of the sketch.  I used my Simply Scored to add some texture, but otherwise my card is pretty simple.

Here's the sketch:

Thanks for looking.  I probably won't be able to post again for a couple of weeks as next weekend my work is flying DH and myself to Wellington for dinner and a night's accommodation to recognise my length of service to the company (which is more than 20 and less than 40 years LOL).  

Products used (all Stampin' Up):

Stamps:  Something to Celebrate
Cardstock:  Crumb Cake; Not Quite Navy
Ink:  Not Quite Navy
Accessories:  Neutrals buttons; linen thread; Timeless Type Sizzix Alphabet; Simply Scored

Oh, I love it, Karren! The scoring, the sponging, the way you've anchored the buttons - great details. Enjoy your night away :)

Great masculine card Karren. I love all those scored lines! I really need to start incorporating more of that into my own cards. Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
