My husband was away on Father's Day, so the children decided they would just wait and celebrate him belatedly. I went to a card class while he was away, and I decided right then and there that one of the design ideas available to created would be perfect for hubby. It reminded me of a family reunion vacation that hubby and I took, where most of his brothers, sisters, and their spouses were there. We all pooled together and rented a beautiful three-story home on the Outer Banks of North Carolina right on the ocean...lovely, lovely. Take a peek below...my husband will loved his card.
While making my card, our hostess ran out of the ombre-shaded paper from Stampin' Up's Color Theory dsp stack, so I thought sponging would do the trick just as well using Dapper Denim ink. One other pattern in the same paper stack was used as the ocean waves by applying the torn paper technique. The darker blue part of the paper was also in short supply, but when we checked the opposite side we felt this side would work just as well. Personally, I like it better than the original suggestion. I wanted my card to be a Father's Day card, so I took my card home and applied my own sentiment. Such a fun card to make. Thanks Dar Peterson for the design idea to CASE.
