Kind, Caring, Dad…………


It’s Wednesday and that means it’s another Wacky Wednesday challenge day.  This week, Joan is challenging us to make a Fathers Day card.  I chose to add a shipping tag to my card using 7gypsies 6x6 gypsy market papers on the top portion with flourishes stamped on the bottom portion.  The man is stamped on acetate and layered over the top.  Actually, the stamp is by KK Originals and is titled Isabelle.  So, I am guessing it is supposed to be a female but I thought it looked like a guy.  The Kind and Caring definitions are cardstock stickers by Pebbles Inc.  I added a spiral clip and a hinge clip by Tim Holtz.  The alpha brads are from an unknown source.  The flourishes stamped on the card base were stamped with Distress Black Soot ink and misted with water to soften them into the cardstock and the wet edges were sponged in black as well.  The tag is raised on foam dimensional tape.   

Stamps:  Flourish Set 463, Isabelle 6607-M KK originals

Paper:  Prism Blush Red Dk, Black.  Medium shipping Tag, 7gypsies 6x6 gypsy market

Ink:  Stazon Jet Black, Distress Black Soot & Fired Brick

Accessories:  Tim Holtz hinge clip, spiral clip, alpha brads, CS definition stickers, Acetate, Hemp, Fibers.  Foam dimensional tape.

All of the challenge details are on the Rubbernecker Stamp Company BLOG  We hope you will join the Design Team in the challenge and play along!
