Inventory Reduction Challenge #86 - Father's Day

Even though we are not "officially" a group anymore, the former teammates of Inventory Reduction Challenge have the list of challenges going through the end of August, so I'm going to continue doing them.

The theme for this week is Father's Day or masculine card with three layers.  This was another very fun card to make.

The designer papers are from Basic Grey's Oxford pad.  I really like the way they work together for this card.  I turned the layers a bit so the dp's underneath could be seen a bit more.

I used Happy Edwin and hand printed "Happy Father's Day" on the sign he's carrying.

He was colored with Copics.  His buttons were done with silver glitter pen.

The card base is Stampin' Up!'s Crumb Cake.  The layers are mounted on Bravo Burgundy. 

Edwin is popped up with dimensionals on More Mustard.

The bottom of the easel card has two flowers from Prima Marri Collection Melody.  The button centers are tied with Baker's Twine Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler from SU.

The sentiment panel was cut using Nestabilities Deckled Rectangles dies and mounted on dimensionals.

Here is a close up of the sentiment panel.

Many thanks for stopping by and visiting.  I wish a very happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there.
