Dad’s 60th Birthday

Well, this year my Dad turned 60!  Dad doesn’t live nearby and he is visiting at the moment, so I can now show you the birthday card I made for him.

I really wanted to try and make a masculine card … meaning no flowers!  That is a challenge!  Instead, I went with a stars theme … cause my Dad’s a star! hehe!  Plus I stuck to mostly neutral colours with Basic Black, Copper and Very Vanilla … with a dash of Soft Sky and Tempting Turquoise.

The stamps I used were Classic Stars jumbo wheel with the Large Star and Star punches, Wonderful Favourites and Best Friends Numbers.  I also remembered to use my Hodgepodge hardware for once!  That was nice!  I love the Soft Sky ribbon too … I couldn’t help putting ribbon on the card.  Sorry Dad! hehe!

If you’re not familiar with Faux Stitching, I recommend you join my newsletter group.  This months’ newsletter contained a tutorial on this great effect.  So simple!

Thanks for looking!
