Since my last post, I’ve driven home and back for my niece’s graduation.  And yesterday was a whirlwind of dance, setting up for the annual instrumental music banquet and then the banquet itself.  So though I had planned to have brunch with a friend this morning, I’m happy that we had to postpone.  It’s been a lovely, quiet day at home.

And since it is Sunday, I needed to create something for #stampingsunday.   Anyone who wants to play along is using Chalk Talk.  With Father’s Day coming, I was thinking masculine card.  And, with my busy week, I was thinking quick and easy.  I think I’ve accomplished both.  In fact, this one might qualify as a CAS (clean and simple) card.

Now I know that with a name like Lullaby, it sounds anything but masculine.  But, I swear that the Lullaby designer paper can work for both baby themed and a variety of other creations.  I used it here as my background over a base of Soft Suede cardstock.

 

To this, I added a piece of 1 1/4″ Burlap Ribbon.  Fast Fuse works great to adhere this ribbon to your project.

Over the ribbon is my Chalk Talk image.  It was inked in Hello Honey and then cut with the Chalk Talk framelits.  Since this is a masculine card, I used my Aqua Painter and a little Hello Honey ink to paint over the flower like images in the corners and the middle of the image.

The Chalk Talk image is raised on Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then to finish the card, I added Candy Dots in the corners from the Brights Collection.  They are not the same blue that is in the designer paper but they coordinate nicely.  In fact, I like the variation in tone that they provide.

 

 

Have you made your Father’s Day cards and gifts?  If not, this might be a good jumping off point for you.  You’ve got a few days yet to finish your projects.
