Happy Father's Day - Samson

Monday June 18, 2018
I sent this card below to my son for Father's day.. He's given me two wonderful grand children.
I had in my mind what I wanted to create but as I went along it changed. I guess until it's adhered down you can make any changes you want.. I started by finding this fun paper my My minds eye.. I then had a strip of the horizontal paper on my desk so I cut it so it was a little narrower (my other son got the other half.. - tomorrow's card) I added it to the stripe paper and then  I added this to a dark gray background piece. On vellum I stamped the sentiment from Sugar Peas design with Staz-on and then using Stampin up ink stamped the argyle above and below.. I used Stampin up stitch die to cut it out.. I didn't like it up against the strip so I turned a scrap piece left over from the stripe card front and die cut the wood grain other side and added this behind the sentiment. It looked better. I added Close to my heart bling.
