For my Dad

Hi everyone! Hope you had a great weekend and are looking at a wonderful week coming up! Prayers going out to all the folks down in central Florida who are facing hurricane weather this week. Hopefully we won't get too much of it up here in the panhandle. It's time for another fun challenge over at Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog and I'm happy to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #79 - It's A Boy Thing! We have three awesome sponsors this time - The East Wind, Lacy Sunshine Stamps and DRS Designs! Come play with us!

I created a clean and simple Father's Day card using the DRS Designs Tool Border. I really like how this turned out - it was so easy and the list of supplies is so short, it's unbelievable! Cardstock, images and ink! I LOVE it when an awesome card comes together so easily!

I printed the tool border on white cardstock, colored it with Spectrum Noir markers and layered it on yellow and navy blue cardstock. I affixed it to the front panel, stamped a sentiment and layered the panel on navy blue prior to adhering it to the card base.

The inside was just as easy. I adhered scrap strips of the yellow and blue cardstock from the front to the left side of the inside panel, stamped a corresponding sentiment and layered the panel on navy blue.

I'd love to enter this card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Spectrum Noir Ultra Premium White cardstock, GKD Pure Luxury White, Wild Dandelion and In The Navy cardstock
  • Stamps: DRS Designs Tool Border digital image, GKD Fabulous Holiday Fillers
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Spectrum Noir- GB8, GB10, GB11, CT4, IG4, IG5
  • Accessories: MISTI

I hope you've enjoyed this project and are inspired to create a masculine project for our challenge this time! And be sure to check out all the fun goodies over at The East Wind, Lacy Sunshine Stamps and DRS Designs! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time!
Scrappy hugs,
