Dapper Father’s Day

I know, you are probably sick of hearing of the nice weather we have been having is but it was another gorgeous day again! I went over to the store in the morning and hung out with Renee and Angie. I also got a card made that I gave to Sharon, Sue’s daughter for her Graduation party, I’ll share that with you later in the week. From the store I headed over to the party in Rockville Center. It was at Kasey’s Kitchen on the roof! A very nice venue with good food. I got to meet a lot of Sue’s family and spent some time chatting with her husband Joe and her sister. After the party I headed back to the house for a bit and then went over to Neal and Stephanie’s for a little impromptu BBQ. Brian, Kim and the kiddies were there along with Adam and Erin and their daughter. It was a fun time and I was home by 8:30. I watched some YouTube and then made my card before calling it a night. Today the store is closed so I’m going to make a valiant effort to make cards and get ahead for the week!

Speaking of getting ahead the card that I made last night is a Father’s Day card! My base is Neenah Solar White 110lb with the front covered in a piece of Black 110lb. All of the images and greetings are from the Hero Arts Dapper Dad Photopolymer Stamp Set. I drew some pencil lines across a piece of Solar White 80lb and stamped the Happy Father’s Day in Hero Arts Wet Cement. Next up I cut out another piece of Black 110lb with the Lawn Fawn Say Cheese Lawn Cuts and heat embossed the Love You in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. Then I adhered a piece of Vellum to the back. Some Foam Tape is adhered around the edges and then it’s adhered to the card. The images are all stamped in Onyx Black and cut out with my Scissors. A little more Foam tape adheres themΒ to the Vellum and the card is done! I love the retro feel of the stamp set and fun images! I’m also impressed that I got a Father’s Day card made this early! I hope that you enjoyed my card for today! Thanks for stopping by! Have a simple Sunday! πŸ™‚
