Anyway, as it's Father's Day here in the UK today I'll wish a happy and relaxing day to all dads. I sadly lost my gorgeous dad when I was 7 years old so had to wait many, many years before I could indulge in Father's Day cards and pressies - so I make sure that my hubby is pampered a bit! He's such a calm, placid and undemanding sort of person that it's nice to make a fuss of him. He's definitely not one for big gestures and lots of fuss, but his favourite thing is just to have all his family around him. Unfortunately this year it'll just be our youngest son here as the two eldest girls live away and our daughter is on holiday - but I know there'll be phone calls (and daughter has left presents, card and instructions with Jack!).
So I just thought I'd share the card I made for him for my daughter and son
I decided to make a gatefold card with a button fastening. No real extra embellishments (as I said, he's an 'unfussy' sort of bloke and wouldn't really want them lol!). And the image is 'King for a day' from Mo's Digital Pencil - a fabulous image that is perfect for all sorts of men's cards.
I've coloured the image with promarkers and copics. The backing papers are from LOTV with some kraft card. The brads and button from stash and the sentiment on the front done on the computer and Spellbinders label dies.
Just hope he likes it!
And I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.
