Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there! I wanted to share the two cards I made this year for the two greatest dads in my life!

This is the one I made for my daddy:


I dragged my brown chalk ink (which I also used on the paper edges) over the twine to rough it up a bit.

Here is the card I made for my hubby: 


I just recently got the PTI Outlines Alphabet and I love it!  I stamped the word "dad" and then colored in with Copics, with just a tad of shading to give it sort of a gradient effect.  The "you're a super" is from PTI Star Prints.

Thanks for looking, and I hope that you and all the special dads in your life have a wonderful day!

Supplies - 1st card:
Stamps: PTI Through the Trees, A Little Argyle, Fillable Frames 4
Ink: Memento Brown, Versamark, dark brown chalk ink
Cardstock: PTI Simply Chartreuse; Bazzill cream
