A card for Dad

Hello everyone!  I could swear that I posted this card before, but cannot find it on my blog or Pinterest board.  Geez, that's what happens when:  a) you are getting older and memory becomes fuzzy, and b) you've written waaaay too many posts on your blog (um, 895.  Ahem.).


The story with this card:  I happened to use up some scraps that were lying together, and a Father's Day card was born in early January 2014.  I used a sentiment stamp from Lizzie Anne Designs 'Dream Big' Monthly Mix May 2010.  I received the set back when I designed for the Play Date Cafe.

I glued a strip of burlap onto a scrap of caramel cardstock first, and was then able to prop it up with foam dimensional stickers.  Before adhering, though, I tied on some garden jute twine.


I'm back tomorrow with a feminine card, as part of a special blog hop.  Hope you'll join me then!

Thanks for dropping in.  =D
