Card A Day Blog post: Happy Father's Day

It's my turn again to post on the Card A Day Blog, and this weeks theme is Father's Day. The card I'm entering is a card I made a while ago for Operation Write Home.

Material used for my card are:
  • A piece of white card stock, 8.5" x 5.5", folded in half, for card base.
  • 4" x 5.25" piece of patterned paper.
  • 3.25" x 4" piece of green card stock for mat.
  • Digital stamp from Digi Stamps Boutique.
  • Copic Markers.
I started off by printing my image on white card stock, then colored it with Copic markers. Since I made my card a while back, I don't remember what color Copic markers I used, all I can remember is that I used various browns, greens, black, and grays. I matted my colored image on green card stock, and then attached that on my patterned paper, that was attached to my card base. I didn't have any Father's Day sentiments either stamps or digis that would work well, so I printed the words Happy Father's Day in green, using my computer. I cut it to size, then inked the edges with brown ink, to make it stand out.

I hope you enjoyed checking out my card. I would really love it if you left a comment, and let me know what you think of it. Make sure you check out our monthly challenge. We offer a prize to one lucky winner each month.
