Nature’s Silhouettes Father’s Day Card

Nature Silhouettes Okay, who still hasn’t made their Father’s Day card yet?  Well, this goes out to all you slackers… this is a quick one!

The tree and deer silhouettes are separate stamps and were stamped in black and the sky was sponged (using a sponge dauber) with a *tiny* bit of the following colors (from the top down):  Bashful Blue, Barely Banana, Blush Blossom & Mellow Moss.  How easy is that?!

The designer series paper is ‘Prestwick’ (from the Fall/Winter 2008 catalog) is the exact same patterns (different colors) as the current (and retiring next week) Manchester DSP.  Love those plaids!

Quick card template I have included my ‘quick card’ template for making a super-fast card with Designer Series Papers.

The dimentions are as follows:   standard sized card turned ‘landscape’ , the bottom layer is 4×4, the next layer is 4 x 3 1/2, the top (focal stamped image) is 3 x 3 1/4.

Okay, so what are you waiting for?  You know this won’t be Tony’s card (he’d say ‘another roadkill card’ remember?)

    Beautiful. Thank you for including the dimensions of the pieces. It is so much appreciated. No Father’s Day card has been made around this place. A CASE may be just the thing though. Thanks again.


  2. Very nice card.


  3. Thanks, Amy! Love this set – for some reason, I don’t have it yet – I was waiting to see if it retired and it’s back! TFS this great, simple card.
