Happy Birthday Dad

January 2, 2018

My Dad is celebrating his 86th birthday today and I thought I would share the card I made for him with you.  He still loves to play golf and I wanted to give the feel of a golf course so I used the Waterfront stamp set to build up my picture.  This is a really fun set to use.  You can stamp and over-stamp as much as you like to get the finish you desire.  I started by stamping the hill image in Pear Pizzazz and below that I stamped the “golf course” in Wild Wasabi.  This stamp has been over-stamped many times to give the finish I wanted.  Below that I used the large image to stamp the water using Pool Party ink.  Again this image has been over-stamped several times to create the finished look.  Lastly I used the same image to add the sky using Soft Sky ink.  I stamped the little flag from the Swirly Bird stamp set using Night of Navy ink.  I used my Basic Black  Stampin’ Write Marker to draw the line for the flag pole and the small circle.  Once the image was stamped, I attached it to Pear Pizzazz card.  I stamped the greeting from the Best Birds stamp set onto the lower right hand corner of Whisper White card using Pear Pizzazz ink.  I embossed the stamped card using the Seaside Embossing Folder.  I wrapped the embossed card using the 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon before attaching to scored and folded Pear Pizzazz card.  Lastly I added the image panel using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the same image as the front of the card to create some grass onto the lower left hand corner of Whisper White using Wild Wasabi ink.  I stamped the trees over the top using Pear Pizzazz ink.

The Waterfront stamp set and all the other wonderful goodies in the Occasions Catalogue can be ordered beginning tomorrow.   You can also start to earn your Free stamp sets tomorrow.  So think about what you want to order and make sure that you reach $90.00 that way you can earn something for FREE.  Yay!  Today also marks the last day that you can order from the Holiday Catalogue, so don’t miss out.

You might have noticed but this is the same sketch from the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches that I used in the Tranquil Tulips card I shared with you the other day.  This card has a completely different feel but I really love the finished result.

Bye for now,
