Happy Fathers’ Day A Bootiful Occasion!

Happy Fathers Day!!  The occasion calls for a manly man card… LOL but I’ve already made so many fathers’ day cards that I’ve got a supply for years to come!  So… for today’s post, I broke out the Bootiful Occasions stamp set to create a manly man card!

The Bootiful Occasions stamp set may be found on page 50 of the new Stampin’ Up! catalog… it has four boot images and a “happy Boot-Day” sentiment.  A fun and irresistible stamp set, it was on my second draft/order from the new catty release.bootiful_occasion-manly-man-card

Today’s card features very vanilla, soft suede and midnight muse card stock along with Comfort Café designer series paper.friendly phrases and stamped/punched sentimentCelebrate could be used for almost any occasion… be it father’s day or birthday, or even a promotion!  I added a few gold metallic brads to offset the popped and punched sentiment just for fun.stamped and sponged fussy cut boot image from bootiful occsions

After stamping the boot image onto soft suede card stock using early espresso ink, I cut it out and sponged along the edges to add depth and dimension then popped it up and onto a second stamped image.add dimension to your cards by popping layers

It added a little bit ore dimension to the card front, as did the square lattice embossed soft suede card stock.

Hope you enjoyed today’s special manly men card… LOL, I had to be to work at 6am this morning, so my DH is smoking baby back ribs and making potato salad for his fathers’ day dinner when I get home from work…I’ll probably append the menu with grilled corn and a lemon pie (his favorite).   YUM!!

Hope you have a wonderful day, I look forward to reading your comments and thank you for your online orders… every little bit helps!
