Every year about this time I start thinking about Father’s Day. Father’s day is a hard day for me, since my father passed away 4 1/2 years ago. I miss him every day, but on Father’s day I think about him a lot. This year, I really want to try hard to make it a special day for my husband, make it a day he can enjoy, rather than me dwelling on the fact that my dad isn’t around anymore. I’m determined to do this. I’ve already got a jump on it, because I’ve got this card made. (Does anyone else wait until the last minute to make cards? I know I do!)
A while back, I was asked if I wanted participate in the “100 Days of Tombow” and I jumped at the idea. I knew that I could come up with a fun card, and Father’s Day is just the occasion. Plus, just for writing this post, Tombow will donate $100 to the Council for Arts Education. It’s a win win! 🙂
I started by adhering a burnt orange piece of cardstock to the base of my card.
You guys, this dot adhesive runner is so COOL! I love it! SO easy to use!
Next I stamped some argyle shapes onto a scrap piece of cardstock. I just used some gray ink.
Then, using the colored pencils I received, I colored the diamonds in. I love that the texture of the cardstock makes it look like a sweater. 🙂
I finished up by stamping Happy Father’s Day at the bottom of the card.
This was such a simple card to put together, but it was so fun at the same time. I loved being able to ‘color’ with the colored pencils. I don’t take the time to do that kind of thing often, so it was fun.
So, are you ready for Father’s Day? What are some of your favorite things to do for your dad or husband that day?
