Best Dad Ever

As promised here is the second post for this evening. I do enjoy playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge and so I'm trying to do one each week now. Here is the sketch that inspired my card:

I had a couple of ideas going round in my head with this one especially some Christmas cards with the star stamp set but as there is still plenty of time for Christmas yet I thought I would do something else. My Dad has helped us out a lot recently (and all the time really!) so I designed this card with him in mind. I was disappointed when the feather stamp set retired from last years catalogue so when I saw Four Feathers in the Autumn/Winter catalogue I just had to get it! This is the first time I have had a chance to play with it and hopefully will make several more cards using these lovely stamps and matching framelit dies.

For the background I decided to use the Honeycomb TIEF but didn't want it to be raised and so I put the flat edge on the outside and the raised edge on the inside of the card. I felt that this way the feathers stood out more than if they were stuck to a raised background. I hope you like it.

As I mentioned in my previous post I now have the Stampin' Up! online store so instead of having a list of supplies at the bottom of each post I will now include a table showing the products and if you click on the picture it will take you directly to the item in my store. As always feel free to contact me with any questions using the details at the top of the page.



  1. Aren't dads great? This is a great card to give your father. The feathers look fantastic as do the chevron elements. Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  2. Fabulous masculine card. I love your use of texture - a perfect backdrop to those three lovely feathers. Thank you for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
