Happy Father's Day - To My Husband


Happy Dad's Day to my dear Jim, who manages all the many crises of our life with a unique blend of panic and stoicism!!  lol...

Hi, Friends.....

I am here with a Father's Day card for my dear hubby.  He was so sweet and encouraging about my hand-lettered tag that I decided to make a hand-lettered card for him, too.  I think it adds a personal touch....even if my handwriting isn't perfect.  He will love it and keep it forever.  (Awww....he's such a romantic!!  <3  <3  <3)

I stamped a wonderful vintage truck image from Mark's Finest Papers - Big Boy Toys stamp set with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with WOW! Embossing Powder - Opaque Bright White Regular onto kraft.  Love the white on kraft look!!

I wrote out my sentiment with a black permanent marker onto a leftover bit of acetate and mounted it onto a scrap of white cardstock with tiny brown brads.

These panels were mounted onto brown cardstock dry embossed with my Darice - Checkered Folder.  This was put on a kraft card base.  I think hubby will like the clean crisp lines of this card and the vintage image.  

Happy Father's Day, Darling!!!  So glad you are the dad of my kids!!! 

<3
Janis

I think hand lettering on a card is genius - I have never done that, but what a great idea!!! And I, too, LOVE white on kraft, I think it's just stunning!! Great take on the challenge, thanks so much for playing along this week at the Mod Squad Challenge

Yes!! The white embossing on kraft is a great look, especially with the vintage truck. Love the handwritten sentiments you've been doing and I'm so impressed that you wrote on acetate because I can never do that without my pen or marker slip sliding all over the place! As for your kitty photo...sheesh, not sure whether the e-collar or the pj's are worse for a cat!! Oh my!
