Father's Day card for JAI

Tonight I am having some ladies come over to create a fun Father's Day card for this Sunday, and when I saw the Just Add Ink challenge for Just Add...Dad it was perfect timing!

This card was created using some scraps of leftover paper and some old embellishments. I have made three of these in order to cover my husband, dad and father in law.

I sanded the edges of the squares to make the card more masculine, and I also kept the background neutrral since there is a lot going on in the different squares. Some tone on tone stamping kept the card subtle but eye-catching.

I hope the men in my life like this card as much as I enjoyed making it!
