SSSC63 Dad


Today I got to play the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge (SSSC63) and I really, really liked the sketch this week!  I also got to use the two new sets by Our Daily Bread Designs called Happy Father's Day (for the image) and Dad (for the sentiment).  My Father-in-Law has his birthday this month and I was thinking of him as I made this card.

I started with a base of Chocolate Chip and layered with Kiwi Kiss and Very Vanilla.  The vanilla was embossed with Distressed Stripes EF and then lightly sponged with Close to Cocoa ink.  The horizontal panel is more chocolate punched on one side with the Fiskars Upper Crest Border Punch and layered with some MME Little Boy Blue DSP.  The toolbox is from Happy Father's Day and has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Copics (E21, E29, E31, E33, E35, E37, B93, B95, YG63, YG67, YG91, YG95, Y21, YR23, C1, C3) ) and cut out with Small Circle Nestabilities and then matted with Kiwi Kiss cut with Label 12 Nestabilities.  Finally I stamped the DAD sentiment from the Dad Set in Chocolate Chip, lightly sponged with Cocoa and cut with circle nestabilities and matted with more chocolate and popped it up on foam tape.

Paper - Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, X-press It Blending Card, MME Little Boy Blue DSP
