Happy Father's Day...

... for yesterday. That is for most of the world, except Australia (I'm sure there might be other countries where it wasn't Father's Day either, but not that I'm aware of). Even though I didn't need to arrange anything for David for Father's Day from the kids, it still was Father's Day for my dad in the Netherlands.

On the card I made for my dad, I solely used stamping techniques, without using any patterned papers. In fact all the materials except the ribbon, brad, ink and white cardstock are from Papertrey Ink.

I had a great time assembling this card. I used a recently purchased shirt from David as inspiration for the colours. I don't know how clearly you can see, but I photographed the card in front of the shirt.

Supplies: Cardstock: Papertrey Ink + Bazzill Basics | Ink: Stampin'Up (Concord Crush, Perfect Plum, Baja Breeze), Brilliance (Moonlight White)  | Clear Stamps: Papertrey (Boy Basics: Simple Circles, Mat Stack 4 Collection, Tag-Its 2, Background Basics: Text Style II, Background Basics: Woodgrain | Ribbon: Spotlight | Dies: Papertrey Ink (Mat Stack 4, Limitless Layers, Simple Circles) | Brad

As for the Australian Father's Day, that will be celebrated the first Sunday in September.
