Glad to Have Dad

This is for my father-in-law. This was the first time I've spritzed the paper with a little water before using a texture plate. The difference is amazing. I got a really good impression, and then I smeared ink over it to add even more depth!
I think I'm going to add a fishing hook and some line before I send it to him, but since it will be a workshop card tonight, with a birthday sentiment option, I didn't want personalize it too much. So you'll just have to use your imagination to envision the final awesomeness of this card! LOL ;)

Stampin' Supplies:
STAMPS - Forest Friends, Enjoy Every Moment, Jumble Alphabet
PAPER - Kraft, Brocade Blue, Whisper White
INK - Old Olive, Brocade Blue
, Close to Cocoa
OTHER - Top Note Die, Distressed Texturez Plate

I don't think I could ever make a card worthy of my wonderful father, but I hope he will like this one.  I went with a checkerboard pattern using nine 1x1" squares. The game pieces are from a stamp set called Game Night, and my dad LOVES to play games!

Stampin' Supplies:
STAMPS - Game Night, Medallion, Jumble Alphabet
PAPER - Confetti Cream, Summer Sun
INK - More Mustard, Night of Navy

OTHER - 1/2" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals

Happy Friday ya'll!
