Father's Day

The Dies R Us Challenge #122-Kids threw me for a loop until I thought about how kids play a big part in making Father's Day a big success so I went along that theme and created a card for my son-in-law who due to a TBI from an injury has some difficulties with walking and other functions. Much of the time he uses a walker but at times he will also use a wheel chair. And he is a father to a girl and a boy so with the silhouette stamp set I decided to make a scene card for him.


The first thing I did was take my blending brushes and a stencil to make a sky and grassy lawn area. That was the main background and I was then ready to stamp the silhouette images from the stamp set. But I felt it needed more so I took another stencil  and added a tree. My sentiment was stamped in black on white card stock and then die cut and layered to a layer of black card stock. I added a few gems and then placed that in the sky portion of the card. This is approximately a 5 x 7 card.

Verna

Verna, your card is absolutely gorgeous. I love it. The Blue Knight Stamps were perfect for your son in law's Father's Day Card. I love the beautiful clouds.

Nice twist! Kids really do make a Father's/Mother's Day the best! Nice job on your blending but I'm also impressed you just happen to have those silhouettes!

I like the way you think!! A Father's day card never crossed through my mind for the kids theme, but this turned out to be such a personal, and thoughtful father's day card that will be cherished I'm sure! The clouds in the sky are gorgeous and I just really love how you put this all together! Love it!

You created a great scene with the sponging and silhouette images. I'm sure your son-in-law will love it.

So sweet! Must be difficult for your son in law to be not able to walk well. My husband has problems walking too....The sky looks amazing, but the tree is what really caught my attention - awesome with that two tone stenciling!
