Belated Father’s Day

September 27, 2019

Some of you will know that my husband and I have been away for about one month in our caravan.  We travelled to Karumba on the Gulf of Carpenteria and then across the Savannah Way to Ravenshoe and down to the coast and slowly made our way home.  We had a great time, but it is heartbreaking to see how dry it is out west.  I truly cannot comprehend the determination and just plain “grit” our farmers and country dwellers have to continue to live and work in such trying circumstances.  Hopefully they will be rewarded with rain this summer!  Anyway, while I was away we celebrated Father’s Day here in Australia so today I am sharing the card I made for my Dad when I got home.  The card evolved from an idea I had and although not entirely what I envisioned, I am totally happy with the outcome. I cut the second largest oval in the Layering Ovals Dies from Whisper White card and used it as a mask for another piece of Whisper White card.  I sponged Balmy Blue ink across the bottom of the oval and Pool Party ink across the top.  I attached the sponged Whisper White card to Night of Navy card and then Whisper White card.  I stamped the lighthouse from the Sailing Home stamp set onto Whisper White card using Night of Navy ink and cut it out using the co-ordinating Smooth Sailing Dies.  I attached the lighthouse to the lower right hand corner of the sponged Whisper White card.  I stamped the small sailing ship from the Sailing Home stamp set onto Whisper White card and cut it out using the co-ordinating Smooth Sailing Die.  Before I attached the sailing ship to the card front, I stamped the sea birds onto the sponged area using Night of Navy card.  I attached a piece of Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine across the Whisper White card below the sponged panel.  The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Night of Navy card.  I stamped “Worlds Best Father” from the Itty Bitty Greetings onto Whisper White card using Night of Navy card and punched it out using the Classic Label Punch.  I attached the greeting to a label cut from Night of Navy card using a die from the Lakeside Dies.  The greeting is attached to the card front below the Baker’s Twine. 

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the greeting from the Stitched All Around stamp set onto Whisper White card using Night of Navy ink.

So  belated Happy Father’s Day to my Dad and to all the Fathers out there.
