This week for Fabulous Friday on the Sisters in Stamping blog we are featuring Father's Day cards... it will be here before you know it! I decided to use a retiring set that I will miss a lot - Under the Stars. This little bear is just so cute and I love having him hold a banner, or in this case a pennant. I paper pieced him, stamping the image on the whisper white card stock panel as well as on soft suede, crumb cake and early espresso and then layering the cut pieces. The color combination of cajun craze, more mustard and not quite navy was pulled from my Color Coach and I found that this piece of DSP from the retiring Well Worn pack worked great with it. The sentiment comes from Teeny Tiny Wishes - a must-have stamp set that thankfully is not retiring! Do you recognize the ribbon? I turned the more mustard polka dot scallop ribbon around so that the solid side shows. I like to embellish masculine cards with metal so I used mini silver brads on the sentiment piece.
Here are two of the Father's Day cards that my husband received last year - the top one is mine and the bottom one was made by my daughter Kelsey... both featuring this same bear... cute, right?
And how about this one - I made it at a shoebox swap a couple of years ago. Don't forget to purchase this stamp set before it is gone if you love it as much as I do!
Be sure and hop on over to the Sisters in Stamping blog after Noon EST today to find even more inspiration for Father's Day cards. Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!!
