Fathers Day Card

Mothers Day isn't even here yet, and I've already created a Fathers Day card!
Come join us on June 12 at my Make & Take

So your probably wondering where I got the silver paper from...would you believe it's FOIL?!
Yep right from your kitchen drawer. This is a super easy technique that I found somewhere and have used it on many cards.
Take a piece of card stock, cut to size (nothing fancy) and a piece of foil just 1/4 to 1/2 larger. Next run some Tombow glue all over your card stock and glue your foil on. Yes, do put shiny side up. Now run a little glue along the EDGE, being careful not to go past the foil edge along the card stock. Now wrap like a present.
The last step is to run it through an embossing plate and VOILA silver paper.....See I told you super easy.

The stamp is from Hobby Lobby stamped with black. I did take a silver coloring pencil and shaded DAD a bit and then blended with Mineral Spirit. I tend to use coloring pencils and Mineral Spirit over the other coloring choices.
The brads are also from Hobby Lobby on sale for only $1.19 for a package of 24!
thanks to Melodylanedesign for the inspiration
