Sunday Special: Father’s Day Card 2019

Hello friends! While my Dad is no longer here to celebrate on this day, I love taking some time to remember him πŸ™‚ This is a favourite photo I have from when I was very young:

And this is my Dad with our first born son 25 years later! I love this photo:

I try to make a special card for Paul each Father’s Day to celebrate him and how important he is to our family πŸ™‚ He’s not really into cars, fishing, golf … but he’s using his cameras again – not just the mobile phone πŸ˜‰Β Capture the Good stamp setΒ gave me the perfect images and words, and Sherry Roth from Stamped Treasures gave me the perfect design inspiration:

Heat embossing lets me add raised elements to a stamped image and this time I used white embossing powder on Blackberry Bliss cardstock (note: took this pic at night – with my mobile phone! – so the colour’s too light):

I’ve had my EK success Cutter Bee scissors for around 10 years and they’re great for any fussy cutting like I’ve done with the camera; I adhered the camera with adhesive foam dotsΒ  which gives added dimension:

I usually try to add coordinating elements to the inside writing panel of my cards:

And a close up of the heart where I added Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents:

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit today and I hope this gives you a little inspiration, as Sherry gave me!Β Megan xoΒ Β
