Okay, actually my third Father’s Day card (and still praying for inspiration for the last one!)…another gihugic image from Whipper Snapper.

I’ve done a barbeque theme, a fishing theme and now we are on to the predictable GOLF theme…this is a really cute image and once I cut it down as small as I could get it I decided a square card would be the way to go (incidentally, I’m trying to find a good source for card envelopes in Canada that doesn’t charge mega bucks for shipping – if there’s anyone in NL reading this and they want to go in on an order of envelopes, let me know!).  I used some older Cosmo Cricket paper as my manly paper stash is small and I cracked open the Copic markers again for colouring.

I’m really enjoying using smaller pieces of paper on my cards…it’s something I’m focusing on right now to get the pile of scraps under control.  Having said that, I’m sure I’ll be doing another scrap/image giveaway in the near future.  It was really fun to do a few weeks ago and I’m hoping the recipients managed to make something nice with their happy mail.

As the images I’m working with are so large, I’ve kept the embellishments to a minimum.  The sentiment on this card is another stamp that I cut apart to make it more versatile.  “Have Fun” was all on one line but by cutting the words apart I’ve made it much easier to change the position of the words.  Stacking the words on top of each other works so much better when you want to use a circle!

I don’t know if you can see the paper piercing in the bottom left-hand corner.  It was a good way to add a little interest without bulking up the card.  I used to do this all the time but rarely think of it these days.  Another great technique that’s fallen by the wayside.

Don’t forget to drop by tomorrow…I’ve got a teacher card to show you.  (incidentally, I’m playing with the layout of my blog a little so if you see sidebar stuff moving around, it’s not you, it’s me!)
