Father's Day Card BC155


Today's Blogger's Challenge is for a Father's Day card.  I used one of my favorite Dad sayings from the very useful All Holidays Stamp Set.  The well-loved but retiring colors of Handsome Hunter, Ruby Red and Creamy Caramel are my color scheme, highlighted by Silver.  A rectangle of aluminum-foil wrapped cardstock was run through the Big Shot with the Harlequin Texturz Plate to give it that great pattern.

The card base is Ruby Red with a layer of Handsome Hunter that has been texturized with the Big Shot and the Distressed Texturz Plate; the corners were treated with the Ticket Corner Punch which is also retiring.  Silver Mini Brads are the final touch!

Thanks for visiting today!  Have a great weekend!
