... when Ben was up with us last week, he asked if I could make him some Father's Day cards. Ben has to make a card for his father - Kim (with whom he now lives) and one for his step-Dad - Jonathan. Ben used to make cards, but his interests have changed a bit and decided to ask me to help out. Any excuse to make a card or two is fine by me.
Kim has recently started a college course on wine making, tasting and all the bits that go along with wine!! Naturally, the course involves a certain amount of tasting - the fun bit!! So I used this as the basis for Ben's card to his Dad.
I found an old, and slightly neglected, stamp set by Woodware that featured wine. I stamped the images using Versamark and added Perfect Pearls to colour them. I went for a dark red and green - for red and white wine respectively! For the topper I used an image from a Kanban set which I got from QVC a couple of years ago - I altered it a bit by using my nesties - and then layered it onto a backing paper.
Stamps: Woodware - Cheers FRCl008; Stampin' Up! - Everyday Occasions
Spellbinders: Wonky Rectangles (S4-306) die #3 & 5
Accessories: Kanban image, Llewellyn-Bowen - Venaissance Papers, Perfect Pearls, Card - from stash
Inside the card I added a simple sentiment to say "Happy Father's Day" - one of my favourite Stampin' Up! stamps. Again, stamped in Versamark and coloured with Perfect Pearls. The inside of the card has a subtle shimmer all over it!
That's all for today. See you tomorrow.
