Dad's Day

Hi and welcome to the start of a special celebration month at Freshly Made Sketches.  We are up to sketch #400 and after 8 years, the challenge is still going strong.  To celebrate, we're going back to Sketch #1 (which was also Sketch #100) this week.  Check it out!


I used the sketch to create a Father's Day card for my dad.


Lots of die-cutting and not much stamping on this card.  I took a few liberties with the elements but they're pretty much all in the right place and I hope you can see the sketch in there!


The DT have some gorgeous cards and I hope you'll check them out and join in the month-long fun!

Products used:

Stamps:  All About Dad (MFT)
Ink:  Versamark
Cardstock:  White, Grout Gray, Gravel Gray, Cement Gray, Black Licorice, Chili Powder (MFT)
Dies:  Tag Builder Blueprints 2 and 3, Dad (MFT), Layered Plaid Cover Die (Altenew)
Accessories:  Raindrops (PTI) White EP

Cheers
Karren

What a great masculine card! I love the colors and that fabulous geometric background. This is "clean" at its best!

Wonderful take on the sketch and a terrific selection of products. That Plaid Cover Die looks like a "must."

Love the strong lines and masculine colors, Karren! The pop of red from the heart is just perfect!

I love the dramatic look of the big "dad" across the two tags!
