My dad’s birthday is coming up later this week, so I decided to use this great sketch from Pals Paper Arts to make his birthday card.
My dad is a really big reader — that’s where I got it from! — so I used the text designs from the Patterns Designer Series Paper Packs to make the stripes. (And just in case you are wondering what the words are, it is one of Shakespeare’s sonnets, Sonnet 83, to be exact.) This card is 5″x5″ square.
Stamps: Thoughts & Prayers, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Gumball Green, Early Espresso, Marina Mist
Paper: Marina Mist, Early Espresso, Midnight Muse, Whisper White, Subtles Patterns Designer Series Paper Pack, In Color 2012-2014 Patterns Designer Series Paper Pack
Other: Early Espresso Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon
I kept this one nice and flat for easy mailing. Happy birthday, Dad! Hope you have a fabulous day!
