Happy Fathers Day

Simple, quick, no frills Fathers Day card, inspired by a few design elements of the Mojo Monday sketch. My Happy Fathers Day stamp comes from the very versatile holiday sentiment set, All Holidays. Ladies, enjoy your hubbies, your fathers and grandfathers this weekend and Fathers, have a wonderful day :)
* Card starts as a Choc Chip 4-1/4"x5-1/2" base. Layered with a piece of To the Nines Specialty paper (my go to paper for all my masculine cards lately)
* I inked my stamp in Choc Chip Craft ink and stamped onto Kraft cardstock. Sprinkled with Clear Embossing Powder and heat set. I love embossing as it really makes your sentiment/image pop. A subtle WOW with little effort. Sprinkle and heat. TIP: You must use VersaMark or Craft ink so your embossing powder will stick to your stamped image. TRICK: If you own a Stamp-a-mi-jig (101049), go ahead and stamp with your Classic Ink, line up your 'mi-jig' and stamp image again with VersaMark - you've just kreated the same effect as a craft ink.
* Matted on Sage Shadow and used my Corner Rounder on opposing corners. Added 3 Choc Chip brads from the Neutrals Assortment Brads for some design interest.
* Placed a Choc Chip vertical piece behind the focal point and again Corner Rounded opposing corners
* 5/8" Choc Chip Grosgrain runs across the bottom and kreates 'tails' under a Choc Chip Corduroy Button Brad.

Kim - I love this card as I've mentioned elsewhere, too.

That To the Nines is beautiful underneath that Chocolate Chip paper.

You're The Boss of color combos. Wink, Wink.
