Fathers Day – A Tribute to Dads Everywhere
Fathers Day is a great day to pay tribute to our Dads, because after all, they are a big a reason why we are here.
So why not honour Dad with a special card. Here is one that I have done to give to my Dad. I am so fortunate to still have him kicking and screaming..”I’m not dead yet”!
So I thought this stamp set would be very appropriate for a Fathers Day card.

I had so much fun creating this card…my imagination just flew. The lasso is made using Linen Thread and wrapped about 3 xs to form a circle and tied together with a small piece of Linen Thread. I wanted the ends of the lasso to show.
The lasso was attached to the star using a vintage brad. All the stars are sponged using Soft Suede and Crumb Cake.
The boots are stamped 2xs using Versa Mark and embossed with Early Espresso Embossing powder and sponged using Soft Suede and Crumb Cake. The boots were fussy cut using Paper Snips. These scissors are so great for getting into tight spots when you are cutting out stamped images.
The sentiment comes attached to the stamp. However to make the stamp more versatile, I will trim the sentiment from the main stamp and attached separately. This gives you more “bang for your buck”
