CPS Dad Card

This weeks CPS challenge has a lot of layers - or at least potential layers.  I decide to start working on some masculine cards since Fathers Day is coming up and I have a OWH box that is almost filled.

For this card I used the new set, Best Dad Ever, coming in the SU! summer mini catalog in May.  This set is great for making Father's Day cards or just a masculine Thinking Of You card.

I love the line of ties stamp.  This was one of the things that drew me to this stamp set in the first place.  I decided to play off some of the patterns in the ties and used some of my texture plates for 2 of the background panels.  For the other 2 I used other stamps from the set to create a collage

To finish out the sketch I cut apart yet another sentiment stamp from this set and layered the words on early espresso card stock to make them stand out against the all the background layers.

Thanks for stopping by!
