SSS19 Happy Father's Day!!!

Happy Father's Day!!!! In Australia we celebrate Father's Day on the first Sunday in September, so this week I have been busy making masculine cards. This one is going to my DH. :) I was inspired by last week's Sweet and Sassy Sketch Challenge, I really love this design and will probably use it a lot. This also qualifies for the Flourishes FTTC31 challenge to use No Colouring!

I started with a base of white, layered with Chocolate Chip, Old Olive and some Windsor Knot DSP. The next panel is more Windsor Knot DSP matted with Chocolate Chip and some Old Olive that has been punched top and bottom with the EK Success Wave Border punch. The main panel has been stamped using SU's Occasional Greetings set (aka All Holidays in the US) in Chocolate Chip, cut out and popped up on some Old Olive embossed with the Argyle EF and matted with more Chocolate Chip. The whole panel was popped up and I finishe with some chocolate grosgrain ribbon and some copper brads in the corners.

Stamps - Occasional Greetings (aka All Holidays - SU)

Paper - White, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Windsor Knot DSP

Ink - Chocolate Chip

Accessories - EK success Wave Border Punch, copper brads, chocolate grosgrain ribbon, Argyle EF, Square Nestabilities, Foam Tape.

That's all for now, thanks for visiting!!! :)
