For Dad

Another attempt at a masculine card.  I used two of the car images from the Hero Arts "Going" set, and of course, my favourite, the Envelope Pattern stamp!

Paper: Cardstock (PTI), Patterned paper (from my stash)
Ink: Vintage Photo DI; Latte Chalk Ink (Hero Arts)
Stamps: Hero Arts; PTI (Tiny Tags); Typewriter Alphabet (MFT)
Other: Brads (Recollection); Jute (Michaels); Corner Chomper

I first stamped the notecard with the Envelope Pattern stamp and Vintage Photo DI.  The bottom strip of cardstock was stamped with Latte Chalk ink using one of the little cars from the "Going" stamp set to create a pattern.  I then stamped one of the bigger vehicles onto patterned paper and cut that out.

The two circles holding the tag with jute are from the "Typewriter Alphabet" stamp from My Favorite Things.  I just adhered them with pop dots and put a brad through the centre to hold the jute.

Hoping you are having a good start to your Sunday if you are in this part of the world.  I have just had a very pleasant 9 mile run, there was a lovely cool breeze which was really nice for a change.  Now I have quite a number of household chores to do and a pile of paperwork to enroll my dear daughter into Kindergarten this Tuesday!  So excited!
