Love you {a lot} Dad

First, I'd like to send Happy Father's Day wishes to all of the dads out there!  Second, I'd like to wish my own father and fiancé the happiest of Father's Day's today as well.  We will be seeing my dad bright and early this morning for our typical Father's Day ritual...brunch at his favorite seafood restaurant for a delicious all inclusive brunch buffet.

So in typical Father's Day fashion, I made both of my favorite men handmade Father's Day cards.  They both like receiving my cards, so I love coming up with something special for them.  

For this year's Father's Day cards, I made Love You (a lot) Dad Cards using the stamp set from the "Love You A Lot" April 2015 Paper Pumpkin Kit.  

I followed the deconstructed sketch 190 for my design.

In order to achieve the stacked stamp look, I grabbed my Clear Block I and stacked the four stamps that I needed one right over the other (as shown below).  I practiced several times on my Grid Paper to make sure they were perfectly aligned before stamping the words onto my Very Vanilla Cardstock.

You may not be able to see them all that well in the pictures, but I finished off the cards with our Itty Bitty Accents Epoxy Stickers--two small circles and one large. 

I wanted to keep the cards "manly," so I stopped at adding only three Itty Bitty Accents Epoxy Stickers.  You might find this hard to believe, but this is the first time I've used them.  Now I LOVE them!  It was the Tin of Cards Project Kit that showed me just how fun they are to use.  Who knew?!

I love these cards, and I can't wait to see what my dad and my Howard think about them!
