A SAILBOAT FOR MY DAD


i made another card for father's day because we are even closer to their special day and any other project would have been looked out of place, don't you think so too?

this one is from designer nic squirrell and it fits with all the rave for a nautical theme and of course for father's day.
if you miss the pegboard card from last week, you can still check it out here.

-this is my take on the sailboat-

Happy Father's Day
5" x 7" 
i did some dry embossing with my cuttlebug and an old fiskars embossing plate i have in my stash.
i embossed the yatch (sailboat) and the blue background cardstock.

the clouds are from some die cuts i normally have at hand and i believe they are from a cricut cartridge, so is the sun which i popped a bit.

i have been adding some wink of stella shimmer to some projects but is hard to see. in this case i added it to the sun, clouds and the happy father's day words.

a bit of a rustic twine for a bit of masculine touch.

i love when i open the card, the left side looks awesome: just like a silhouette.
(sorry about my geraniums but we are having rainy and cloudy days and i get better lightning sometimes in this front window facing west)

this super pretty Thank You word are from designer jamie cripps and i think it looks  adorable. the font is so pretty. 
the lines behind it are just some scraps from the front of the card. i think they look nice and they carry some of the design to the inside.

yatch card: digiplayground item# 19078
thank you word: digiplayground item# 19204

cardstock: recollections
