Father's Day

Hello bloggers! I know I have been away for a while, but work calls. I have gotten several projects done in the past few weeks, I just haven't had time to post them. I decided today to share the father's day card I made.

I used craft card stock for the base, and vintage cream for the mat. I then used the polka dot basics stamp set from papertrey ink. First I stamped the polka dot outline, to make the background then used the solid polka dot to fill it in. I used barn door, wild honey, and walnut stain distress inks, and a blue memento ink pad to fill in the dots. I then used some versamark and went over each dot and then used clear embossing powder just to give it a little something extra. I then used vintage photo distress ink to go over the entire background to give in a more distressed look.

I used the alphabet cartridge that comes in the cricut expression 2 to cut out dad. I used terracota tile, ripe avocado, and dark chocolate papertrey ink paper. I felt like it still needed something so I used some twine and a button from my stash on the bottom.

I hope you all enjoyed my card today, and hopefully I will have a few more projects to post in the near future.

Ashley :)
