Father's Day Card

Father's Day is this Sunday. I find it so difficult to shop for gifts for my husband, but my dad is even worse. He never tells you anything he wants, but after a holiday he has all these things he "needs" to buy. Lately, I've been sticking with gift cards so when his need arises, he has money to spend.

Here is the card I made for him.


I used some older Anna Griffin paper and painted a border on it using Shimmerz paint. I received this paint in a kit a few months back and have never used it before, so I wanted to give it a try.

I used Martha Stewart velvet ribbon with a wood grain pattern embossed on it, and layered a piece of vintage crochet trim on top. I made the flower using a couple of different punches. I punched the scalloped circle from an old book page and the circle from a scrap of the background paper (the reverse side). I cut the leaves from a Graphic 45 punchout.

Finally, I typed the sentiment on the margin of an old book. Two of the edges were already distressed (being in an old book), so I carefully distressed my cut edges using a nail file.

Great card! I really love the border you painted on it and the Happy Father's Day on the book page!

That's the coolest father's day card I've ever seen! I'd want to frame it!
