Here is today's card, showcasing the Dad is Rad special this month! 

This card was taken from our How-To-Book volume 4, pattern #17.  How QUICK & EASY it is to create a card with these books...I ADORE them! 

I used the "leftover" papers in the Dad is Rad kit to create this card. (see details about this kit farther down the post ;) )

Let's take a few close up looks at the details of this card...

I wasn't sure what color to create the #1 image, so I stamped one in Crystal Blue & the next one in Sapphire.  

As I was trading them back & forth on my card I realized, why not put BOTH colors on! :)  An easy solution & I was happy with the contrast too!  
If you look closely, you might be able to see the gold sparkle I gave the #1 with our gold shimmer brush...a fun added touch. 

I also was "determined" to create my own paper, and that means stamping a background. 

I love those argyles, & decided to just used the stitched design.  I used Toffee ink and stamped on the Almond cardstock. 

The burlap ribbon is always a nice, masculine touch.  

Did you know that you can cut apart the clear stitching & separate the strands?  That's how I created the fringed edges of the bow.  
I felt the "need" to do some inking of the edges of my papers, so we pulled out the Toffee ink to give it that rustic look. :) 

So, let's take a look at what' all included in this AMAZINGLY, Fab kit!
