A Happy Father's Day!

A Very HAPPY FATHER's DAY to all the wonderful DADs out there!! :)
This card is in honor of YOU - to thank you for guiding us along the way in LIFE.
CARD RECIPE
Stamps: Inkadinkado - Happy Days #98628
Paper: MM Textured CS, Stampin' Up! Blue
Paper Size: 5x7
Ink: Brilliance Coffee Bean, Stampin' Up!
Accessories: Sue Wilson Embossing Folders, Creative Expressions Pierced Flags Craft Dies by Sue Wilson, Sizzix Thinlits Cardfront Arrows , Hole Punch
Techniques: Dry Embossing, Sponging, Layering


This fun arrows Sizzix Thinlits Card Front Die (used as background here), is awesome because it does most of the work for you. I even kept some of the arrow cuts that cut out from this die and embossed them, then replaced them in their corresponding cut areas. Ive used a hole punch for the Brown corner dots.  The bottom layer is Dry Embossed for added texture and all edges are Sponged to finish the fun grungy masculine look.
