Card for my Dad

My Dad's birthday is next month so I am getting a head start before I get back to more general cards for my card sharing group.  I am sure I will still forget to mail it in time (stop laughing, Mom), but at least I will have the evidence that it is done.  Ha Ha.  The sentiment inside was digitally printed from an Oscar Wilde quote I found and hand inked on top for more of an aged feel (like my Dad!).  It's hard to see in the photo and says "The old believe everything; the middle aged suspect everything; the young know everything"  followed by my addition of "Have a great birthday knowing everything".
I am entering this into the following challenges:
  1. Viva la Verve April Week 2 - sketch challenge
  2. Fantabulous Cricut # 106 - Ribbons and Buttons
  3. My Craft Spot # 51 - Inside and Out (include a sentiment on the outside and inside
  4. Shopping Our Stash Challenge 47 - Masculine theme

  • Background paper = My Minds Eye; printed paper = Affinity paper stack by the Paper Studio
  • Tag for main sentiment = Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge
  • Stamps = Cloud 9 ("DAD"); Close to My Heart (Love heart on charm)
  • Ink = Tim Holtz Distress Ink Forest Moss; Studio G Brown
  • Ribbon and Button = unknown
