More Father's Day cards

This card was for the girls to give to Glenn. It was for a challenge from the Elite stampers cyberstamp, a male card using patterened paper, mine has also ended up being a CASE of a card by Leigh O'Brien. I stamped the letters in Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron and Tempting Turquoise on Whisper White and layered on matching cardstock. The card base has a piece of Part Pieces patterned paper, the letters on top (some on dimensionals), and the stars from On Board Accents are sponged with Barely Banana, Apricot Appeal and Certainly Celery, then stamped with the asterisk from All The Best in Saffron, Pumpkin and Olive and attached to the card front.
This was for another elite cyberstamp challenge, a CASE of a card from page 5 of our Spring Mini catalogue. I used the Letterpress alphabet, stamped it on Creamy Caramel using Buckaroo Blue ink. The Buckaroo Blue card base has been stamped with the Linen background using VersaMark, with the sentiment from All Year Cheer I stamped with Buckaroo Blue ink. The More Mustard layer has the Print Pattern background stamped in VersaMark, then it was scrunched up a few times, swiped across the More Mustard stamp pad, torn, wrapped with natural hemp twine and attached to the card front. I attached the Caramel layer with a couple of dimensionals and used a couple of Antique Brass HodgePodge pieces to finish it off.
