By the Tide Father's Day Card

Well, now it's time to move into making some Father's Day cards.  I have no one to give these to anymore so I don't make many of them.  But I do like to have some on hand as samples for the gals who come over to stamp.  

I found this card on Pinterest.  It's made by Deena at My Home Grown Art.  I thought it looked like a fun and yet simple card to make.  Plus it was using the By the Tide set and I have not played with that one enough!   I have seen lots of samples using this set and have pinned them but that is as far as it gets.  I think that's as far as it gets with most of my pins on Pinterest.  I think I'm addicted to pinning!!!!  LOL

For my card I used Smoky Slate for the base.  I added a layer of Pacific Point and then the Whisper White. My inks are also Smoky Slate for the fern (stamped off once) and Pacific Point for the shell and words.  The words are from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set.  I used Baker's Twine to wrap around the card.  I didn't tie a bow.  I just taped the ends to the back.   And then I tore the paper.  I have not torn my paper in a while.  I don't make a lot of cards that I find I can tear the paper and have it look like it was meant to be!!!  So it was kind of fun to tear the paper!!!

This was a very fun card to make and extremely simple too!  An easy layout with minimal color but yet effective.  A perfect Father's Day card!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
