Okeydokey. Here's the second Father's Day card. This one is for my father-in-law and uses the same Papertrey set as my father's card . Hopefully he likes his, too!
This one started out inspired by the ribbon. Don't ask me why -- I'm not even sure where it came from! But I saw it in my stash and figured I would find some paper to match to it. Then I thought of the idea of stamping on patterned paper that I've seen so much of recently and figured this would be as good a time as any to try it out.
Paper: Bazzill green cardstock, Paper Tree maroon and white cardstock, Provocraft Slab VI patterned paper
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Colorbox Chalk brown ink
Buttons: Papertrey Vintage Button Collection in Vintage Cream
Wow...I'm a bad blogger. It's been almost a month since my last post!
I lost my mojo, and no matter how many beautiful blogs or magazines I looked at, I just didn't feel motivated. It didn't help, either, that I got immersed in the Twilight book series. I went through them in about two weeks. It's been a really long time since I've been into reading like that. If you haven't read it, it's really a great story. I didn't think I'd like it -- it sounded hokey -- but it was soooo good.
Anyhoo...holidays are always a good motivator when I'm in a card funk. Especially if someone's EXPECTING a card, like Father's Day. :-) So I got busy. Well, I guess technically, I thought about it for a long time before I actually sat down to make it. And darn it...I cased a card I found online for this one and now I can't read the watermark. If someone recognizes the layout, I'm happy to provide credit. I guess I need to find another way to store my inspiration.
This one is for my father. Almost everything is Papertrey Ink. I hope he likes it!
