Celebrate Dad!

Fathers Day is just around the corner, so it's time to get started on those cards for dear ol' dad!

And if you are anything like me, i have the HARDEST time coming up with masculine cards! but you are in luck, because this weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge is all about celebrating Dad, so there is lots of inspiration, not only from the goddesses samples, but from the wonderful projects that are being submitted! click on over to check it out, make one of your own, and be sure to submit it! We would love to see it, and there will be someone out there inspired by your creation!

When trying to come up with this card, i first thought, ok, what kind of things would i attribute to a father. well, lots of things went through my mind, but i started thinking about shirts, and originally i thought about a bowling shirt theme, but it wasn't working out, so then i thought, ok, button up striped shirt, and maybe a belt. so from there, it evolved into the card in the picture. originally it was supposed to be like the cuff of a striped shirt (see the button placement?) but when i look at it, it looks more like a off white shirt, belt, and striped pants. haha! anyway, i hope it helps you come up with a nice card for dad, i am sure whatever you give him, he will love!

For this card i used sahara Sand, Chocolate Chip, and Cherry Cobbler cardstock, Chocolate Chip DSP, Chocolate Chip Buttons, and the All Holidays stamp set stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink on Sahara Sand cardstock.
