Deconstructed Dad's Day

I used the current Deconstructed Sketch to put together a quick card for Father’s Day. I love the look of the golden yellow and gray color combination I used for the card—it’s great for masculine designs.

My focal image is the “happy Father’s Day” sentiment from the Waltzingmouse Stamps Man of the Hour stamp set. It’s stamped in gray ink on a cream oval panel that is layered on a matching gray oval mat. I used both sides of a piece of patterned paper from a My Mind’s Eye paper pad to make the panels beneath the sentiment. The busier golden diamond patterned piece, edged with a strip of solid golden yellow along the bottom, covers most of the cardfront. It’s broken up a bit with a fishtail flag strip cut from the gray pinstripe pattern found on the opposite side of the paper. Before adding the sentiment on top, I wrapped the panel with some black twine. Once the sentiment was in place, I topped it with a gray button tied with more black twine.

Materials Used:
Man of the Hour stamp set (Waltzingmouse Stamps); Memento Gray Flannel ink (Tsukineko); Steel Grey cardstock, Die-namics Fishtail Flag Layers Stax die, Steel Grey button (My Favorite Things); So Saffron and Very Vanilla cardstock (Stampin’ Up!); Nostalgia 6x6 paper pad (My Mind's Eye); black twine (Hemptique)
