Dad's Birthday!


 Good morning bloggers!

I am a bit under the weather today, full of bugs and feeling sorry for myself. I hate feeling like this, which thankfully doesn't happen too often!

Today I though I would share with you the card I made for my father in laws recent birthday. I always struggle with male cards so I turned to a set I love for males, but which is now unfortunately retired. There's just some stamp sets I will never get rid of though! My choice of colors was inspired by some papers I am loving at the minute!

So here it is....


The simple inside.....


The paper that inspired my colour choice and decorated the chocolate bars perfectly....


 The matching set together.....


Materials

CS: SU Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White

Paper: SU Twitterpated

Stamps: SU For My Family,Happiest Birthday Wishes (Hostess set), Seeing Spots (Retired)

Tools: SU Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Grey and Baja Breeze ink pads

Misc: Old Olive Striped Grosgrain ribbon (retired)


I loved how this card turned out! I never would have used these colors together if I hadn't been inspired by the gorgeous Twitterpated papers!


Thanks for stopping by. I hope to be feeling better soon so I can get creative. I have some new stash to play with from the upcoming SU seasonal catalogue that goes live on September 1st, so watch this space!

Hugs, Victoria ~x~
