Happy Saturday Everyone! I spent this morning making my dad his Father's Day card. I incorporated everything I had that was masculine in his card and I'm sad to say I don't have much. In fact I don't think I own a single masculine stamp set, so I had to improvise by using my Woodgrain background stamp and my Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder to make the circle look like a golfball. So without a male stamp set, I resorted to making my focal point a "D" for dad. Spruced it up with some polka dots (sorry had to throw something feminine into the card) and finally the card was complete. I made the "D" polka dotted by covering a small scrap of Peach Parfait cardstock with various sized circles, then ran it thru my Big Shot using the Serif Essentials Alphabet dies. I originally wanted to print out "DAD" but the Serif letters were waaaaay too big to all comfortably fit on a 4.25" x 5.5" card. Here's what the polka dotted piece looked like before going thru the Big Shot.
