Father's Day

This is the card that I've made for my Father-in-law for Father's Day. I've been able to combine challenges for this card

Let's Get Crafting (Craftbubble) to alter the edges of card and layers
I_love_digi #8 to use a digi stamp
sewmanychallenge #16 to make a Father's Day card without using the colour blue
really-reasonable-ribbon-challenge #1 Masculine with ribbon

A closeup of the decoupage
Firstly I added colour to the base card using Tim Holtz Distress ink pad in Vintage Photo. I also used the inkpad to add colour to a bp, that was white and green, after I had torn the edges. I printed the digi stamp three times and coloured using Promarkers and cut two of the images to use as decoupage. The sentiment was printed from my laptop. I used a corner rounder on the green card matt behind the digi image and on the sentiment panel and matt. The hessian strip was from my stash, it had been salvaged from a gift basket.

I used

Cardstock from The Paper Mill
Digi stamp Gardening Tools from Beccy's_Place
Tim Holtz Distress ink in Vintage Photo
Promarkers, satin, buttercup, sunflower, ginger, sandstone, caramel, cool grey 3, antique pink, tea green, grey green, lime green, forest green and lavender
Hessian strip from my stash
