With Fathers Day coming up this weekend I guess I am just in the “masculine” mindset. I am really enjoying using the new Hostess set called Simply Sketched.
I used this weeks Retrosketch #67 for the inspiration for my card.
I used the cotton ribbon as the background flag and stuck it down with glue dots. I ran the woodgrain folder on a piece of soft suede cardstock through the Big Shot. I tore the edge of the cardstock before running it through the Big Shot because I have found that if do it after embossing then sometimes the rip will try follow the embossing lines. For the image I used my markers in Basic Gray and highlighted with Marina Mist on the bird and Old Olive and So Saffron in the grass. Then I tied the Linen Thread around the image and finished with the “Thanks so much” sentiment in Soft Suede.
I think my boys will give this one to their Dad for Father’s Day and they can write inside it “….for being such a great Dad.”
