My goal is to use what I have and resist the temptation to buy everything as soon as I see it or hear of it. I did create a few cards to give to the men in my family and I think I've posted two of them (my other half and my son) but I had two more men I need to create for and now I want to share them with you.
The first one is for my youngest brother, who is the best brother ever and an awesome DAD!
I used old Graphic 45 paper and plain card-stock that I inked and stamped to add a masculine look and grungy feel.
The sentiment stamp is from Hero Arts and then the background stamp is from Stampers Anonymous.
This card represents a song written by Luther Vandross (deceased) titled "Dance With My Father".
I loved that song and every Father's Day I play that song, so of course I had to create this card when I saw the photo of the couple.
I think this card classifies as a CAS style card. Not very many embellishments and yet I think it is very telling. For me there is a lot of meaning to it and I think the recipient will share the sentiment as well when he gets it.
On the inside, on the left I plan to include the words to the song Dance With My Father, because this young man's father died before he was 6 years old but he says he can remember his father telling him how to hold a lady when he danced with her.
I used all scraps from the Graphic 45 Proper Gentleman and Ladies Diary paper collections. Cool way to use up scraps.
