Another Father's Day Card...

It's yet another Father's Day card today. Here in Australia we celebrate Father's Day on the first Sunday in September - which is coming up fast and I STILL have one more to make!! Yikes!!! This one is going to my Dad along with a gift card to the local auto store! :)
I started with a base of white, layered with red, another piece of white and then a strip of SU's retired Ginger Blossom DSP. On the white panel I stamped the flourish from SU's Friends 24-7 in Real Red that I stamped off once. The middle panel is a piece of red bazzill cut using the Deckled Rectangle Nestabilities and layered with a piece of white that has been embossed using the Tiny Mosaic EF. I decided to make the ute (or truck if you prefer) red because Dad has a red ute!! :) I actually stamped the truck from the Artful Inkables set Into the Moonlight - which is actually meant to be Bella's truck from Twilight.....shhhhhhh.....he'll never know!!! :) I then coloured it in with Real Red and an Aqua Painter, black marker and blender and a bit of Angel Wings Shimmerz (that my wonderful friend Michelle sent me!) and a touch of Dimensional Magic on the glass windows. The truck was then cut out and popped up on foam tape. For the sentiment, I grabbed JustRite's Favorite Occasions Borders and Centers Set and stamped the Father's Day centre and border in Close to Cocoa ink. I thought this cup image would be great with the car theme!! I also painted the cup with a touch of Angel Wings Shimmerz to make it shiny!! :) I finished off with some chocolate grosgrain ribbon and some copper brads in the corners.
Stamps - Friends 24-7 (SU), Favorite Occasions Borders and Centers (JustRite), Into the Moonlight (Artful Inkables)
Paper - White, Red Bazzill, Ginger Blossom DSP
Ink - Real Red, Close to Cocoa
Accessories - Rectangle Nestabilities, Deckled Rectangle Nestabilities, Tiny Mosaic EF, Copper Brads, Paper Piercer and mat pack, Chocolate Grosgrain Ribbon, Small and Large Circle Nestabilities, foam tape.
That's all for now - I'm looking forward to making something pretty with pearls soon - I'm going into withdrawal!! Thanks for visiting!!! :)

Hello Kathy - what a FABULOUS Fathers Day card!!! Love that truck - your Dad is going to love this! Fathers Day was the last time I spoke with my Dad, nine years ago, he died unexpectedly later that month - so I say...give him cards, spoil him - MAKE IT ALL ABOUT HIM and make sure he knows you love him!! Great card - thanks for sharing!! God bless you!

Lovely card Kathy. I've been busily making fathers day cards as well. I'll have to find some more "manly" stamps I think.
