Or maybe not so much in the case of my hubby. Never did like to wear ties, and never would if he could get away with it! So maybe a card with ties he could never wear, but only look at would be perfect for this man of mine. It's a tad early to be thinking of Father's Day cards, but this could be used for a birthday, or for whatever reason came up to tell your dad how wonderful he is. And all dad's would appreciate that, wouldn't they? Let's take a look and see what you think...
Ink: Lucky Limeade and Night of Navy markers
Paper: Whisper White, Lucky Limeade, and Night of Navy
Accessories: 2011-2013 Designer Printed Brads, Piercing Tool and Mat, Tag Corner Punch(retired), and Dimensionals
I love the contrast of the circle brad which is at odds with all the other lines and angles on the card. But the brad has a subtle windowpane check on it that carries through with everything else.
I just had to dig out that retired punch to have the two corners mimic the bottom of the ties. It didn't look finished without it!
So there you have it - a very clean and simple card for your dad (or hubby, depending what wording you choose). Wonder if I could just use a marker to cross out the word dad and write in husband over it? I think my hubby would get a kick out of me doing that to a card. Think I'll give that a try...
Thanks for checking in today. We made it back from the wedding late Sunday night, and we're getting back to a routine of sorts. My niece's wedding was truly wonderful - maybe the best, most meaningful wedding I've ever gone to. What a great foundation for the rest of their lives together! That's it for today. No telling what I'll have for you next as I skip around on the holidays. I seem to have forgotten Mother's Day in there somehow. Now I'll need to get going on that, won't I?
Many hugs, Sharon
