Happy Dad’s Day Card

Looking for a really fun and handsome Father’s Day Card? The great thing about Core is that you can add ANY kind of texture to the cardstock with different embossing folders. Plaid, polka dots…sky is the limit! The different textures really make this card because they remind of the patterns of the shirt and tie, don’t you agree?
Keep on reading to see how Mary Pat Siehl created this awesome card….
Here is a little bit about this card from Mary Pat:
I cut the base of the card using my Silhouette. Then I used Core’dinations Tim Holtz and Ranger Distress Collections and cut it out to match the base of my card.  The I ran the Faded Jeans cardstock in my embossing folder and lightly sanded to show the pattern.  I cut my tie using the Scattered Straw cardstock then ran it  through another embossing folder and lightly sanded that.  Finally I stamped my sentiment and lightly inked the edges with the Tim Holtz faded Jeans distress ink.  Don’t you just love how this awesome Tim Holtz collection  matches the inks?  I know I do!
Supplies:
Core’dinations Tim Holtz and Ranger Distress collections
Stamps- Hero Arts
ink- Hero Arts and Tim Holtz
