Browns and Blues

Michael's had a “hot” sale on 12X12 paper pads for $5.00.  I can’t resist a good bargain and found two paper pads that leaped into my basket.

I needed two cards, a Father’s Day card and an Anniversary card.  One of the pads I purchased was Bohemia, My Mind’s Eye paper pad.  Below are the two cards I created using  brown and blue papers from this pad.  I like this color combination and excited to see what I could come up with. 
The first card was a Dad’s Day card.  This could be a birthday card also, but timing worked out for Father’s Day.

Father’s Day Card
Dad Day Card1
I chose a “blue-ish” coordinating card stock I already had as the base to this card.  The next layer is a blue and brown large polka dot paper from the pad.  I stamped as many of the activities which define my husband as I could fit on the card on the same paper as the base.  Each of these were backed with a matching brown frame.   Around the Happy Dad’s Day I added the wrench and hammer brads as he is the best handyman!  The inside of the card read “To a Dad who does it all!” 

 Anniversary card
Towel Card 1
Using the same color paper as the Dad’s day card for the base, I scored the the wainscot wall using my scoreboard.  The wainscot top trim piece is a rectangular piece of  paper raised with foam squares.  The upper wall is also from the Bohemia, My Mind’s Eye pad.  The towel bar was embossed using gray embossing powder and raised with foam squares.  The towels are cut from a Silhouette Store file, his-hers-towels by Ginny Nilson found here.  Adding texture to the towels I used  Cuttlebug’s D’vine Swirls embossing folder found here.  Coordinating brown paper was used to back the sentiment.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great week!
