I’m a bit late on this post, but I figured it’s better late than never, right?!

This card was designed for the Sisters In Stamping Fabulous Friday post for last week.  Our focus was on DADs as we prepare for Father’s Day this coming Sunday.  I’m blessed to have an awesome dad as well as a fantastic father-in-law.  This card would be a great fit for either of these gentlemen, but Father’s Day is not just a time to celebrate your dad, but all great dads!

For this project, I brought out one of my favorite stamp sets – Guy Greetings.  I decided upon the triple wrench image, cut them out and layered them using foam adhesive strips on top of a circle cut of silver metallic foil sheets.  I then stamped the corresponding “life lessons” sentiments on scrap pieces of card stock.  These foam adhesive strips make raising up thin images and sentiments like this a snap.

The Emerald Envy card stock is from the new 2016-2018 In Color set.  I used the Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to add a nice masculine texture to the whole design.
