World's Best Father



The newest sets from Verve Stamps make creating Father's Day (and other masculine cards) a breeze. I used Protector and World's Best, plus oldie-but-goodie Seeing Stars, to make this one. For the tag, I stamped directly onto the grid pattern dp, which happens to be the back side of the red star pattern that I also used. All the edges are sponged with distress ink. Here's a neat thing: the blue tab on the tag is the smallest of the Labels 3 Nestabilities. I also decorated the inside a little bit, where I incorporated this wonderful word montage from Protector:



The inside stitching is faux. Oh my, I do so much better with a machine than a gel pen!

Thanks for visiting!

[Update: I almost forgot!! Well, actually I did forget, but then I remembered, so I'm back to let you know that a new Project Parade has started on the Verve Blog. This month's theme is "It's A Guy Thing: Celebrating the Men in Our Lives." Hope you can play along with us. Remember, two lucky players will win a Verve set of their choice! There will also be a third winner this month - a $25 gift certificate for a random commenter. Enjoy the parade!]
