Distressed Father’s Day Card

Hello Inkers!

Can you believe it’s June already?  Where has the time gone? Father’s Day is only a few short weeks away, so today I’m sharing this Distressed Father’s Day Card… maybe it will give you a few ideas for a card of your own. This card was made with a single stamp set (Guy Greetings), some Typeset DSP, and of course…ink!

. Father's Day- WrenchesI choose the grid lined paper from the Typeset DSP because it sort of reminded me of men hanging their tools up on the walls of their shop. Remember when people would actually draw a line around the item that was supposed hang there?  I was watching the movie Julie & Julia the other day and Julia Child’s husband is actually drawing lines on pegboard where the pots are supposed to hang…too funny!

Father's Day- Wrenches- InsideOn the inside of the card, there’s a little pocket for a gift card to the DIY store of choice.  I haven’t used my cute little stapler that much, so I got that bad boy out and stapled the edges of the pocket together, just the right touch for this DIY card.

Father's Day- Wrenches with envelope_01I used the Envelope Liners Framelits to make a matching envelope for this Distressed Father’s Day Card, and then I added a few Candy Dots (Neutrals) to the front of the card  to finish it off, I guess I could have used staples there too if I’d thought of it sooner…Oops, maybe next time.
