I had a second Father's Day to make, and this one would be for my husband, father of our four children! I enjoyed trying out the Eclipse technique so much on my son's card, that I thought I should do another for my husband, though I wanted to use a different theme.
I checked out possible SCS challenges for a bit of inspiration on the theme, and I decided on the color navy blue in order to enter another Alphabet challenge, which would also work for a lovely Vera Bradley fabric found for this week's Inspiration Challenge.
After looking through my masculine paper stash, I found some navy, red, and tan paper with a nautical theme, which I thought would be perfect, as my husband has always enjoyed taking the boat out and tooling around the lake near our home. The dark navy background, reminded me of a dark night on the water, night being the bonus challenge in the Alphabet challenge. The addition of the red and tan in the nautical print remind me of the Vera Bradley fabric I found in the Inspiration challenge website. I was stoked and ready to begin.
Take a peek below at my second Eclipse technique card for my hubby's Father's Day. I have included my inside design and verse below the card front. Both he and my son loved there Eclipse cards a great deal. . .so I'm grinning from ear to ear!
