Father's Day Card

Hi All!
Here's a quick post to share the Father's Day card that I created. I have to send it off with my mom this week so she can give it to Dad while they're on vacation. I used the Card Pattern sketch and a technique that I saw on Stamp TV yesterday.

The Stamp TV technique was to ink up one side of an embossing folder before running the folder through the Cuttlebug. I inked up both sides (on separate papers) to see which side worked better. I like them both, so I used them both! I then inked the embossed portion with other colors.

I "framed" the center with score lines that I also inked to stand out. The sentiment is actually three different stamps that I combined... and the Father's portion is not quite centered (which Dad will notice), but I don't have time to re-do it :)
Thanks for checkin' it out!!!
