Dad's Summer Afternoon

One of my very favorite sets in the new catalog is the Hostess set Summer Afternoon. I love all three of the beautiful line drawn images...especially this one of the flower cart and the cute little dog.

My Dad loves gardening, so I thought why not use this image for his Father's Day card? This image alone wouldn't necessarily appear masculine, but by using patterns & colors from the Well Worn pack of DSP (retired) I think this is the perfect manly card for my Dad.

Since I had to mail this card and didn't want it too bulky, instead of using a button from my stash, I created a thinner button using Not Quite Navy card stock cut with the Button Sizzlet. To give it some shine and added dimension I embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder.

Have a wonderful weekend...and HAPPY Father's Day to all the great Dad's out there!
