Happy Father's Day , Dad!

It's Father's Day today in Taiwan. I made this card for my dad nearly a week ago and I hope it has arrived on time by airmail!!

I am sure you all agree that it is difficult to make men's cards. For a few days I couldn't make my mind up as to which image or style I should make. In the end, I decided to use a few of my daughters recent photos to make the card. Since my dad hasn't seen them for three years, I am sure he will appreciate the card! This is the first time I have used photos on a card. I quite like it! These are the strawberries which we grew in our garden this summer. It was quite lucky that I found this brown backing paper in my card stash. The lime green boarder and 2 large strawberries just coordinate with the photos so well!

I had to make this card into an easel card. It is one of those cards that should be displayed on the mantlepiece. Hee hee! Here is another photo from the side. The strawberry boarder at the bottom is quite cute too.

I used peel offs for the greetings and added green coloured gems along the lime green boarder.

This time I thought I will try acetate for the card. I used white coloured ink to stamp the swirl image and I've also used white colour ink to stamp 3 stars and placed peel off alphabets in each star that reads Dad. I think acetate always gives the card another dimension

Hope dad will like this card and I am sure mum will find a place to display it somewhere in the house proudly!! smiley emoticons

Happy Father's Day, Dad! Hope you have a wonderful day!
