Gilded Fathers Day 2009

Hello friends,

CHIT CHAT - I hope this finds you having a lovely day; today is Fathers Day in Australia and we have just been for Devonshire teas and a plate of cakes - almost a veritable High Tea but not quite! That, we intend to do on Friday! *grin*

Here is the card I made for Peter for Fathers Day; now he is not MY father but he is a Father, to one very grown up young woman whom is unlikely to contact him until she is ready... and that makes him horribly sad :(

So, as a kindness and because we have no children together this card is made and gifted on behalf of those under his care to soften his dissappointment - given with love from THE very spoilt FUR BABIES! Dog, cats and birds!


CARD RECIPE -

Happy Fathers Day (Stampin Up) stamped with Close to Cocoa on Confetti White also SU; distressed with sponged ink and spritzed with Glimmer Mist. Shapes cut and embossed with Spellbinders Nestibilities and matted on various shapes which have also been texturised in the cuttlebug using embossing folders. Note where I have inked the edges of the green mat and you can see the pattern more clearly.


Beautiful papers are from K & Co K-ology Addison 12" pack; the stripe is scallop edged using SU Scallop border punch. All edges of all pieces are inked to distress.

Ribbon Navy & cocoa and card gilded in areas with gold leaf. The whole is mounted on Night of Navy Cardstock by SU.
Wishing you all a beautiful week full of blessings.

  1. Like the soft blue and green combination.
    These are really lovely papers.
    I hope the kids dipped their paws in ink and "signed" the card for their Dad!
