Masculine Monday: Good Ole Dad

Ah, Monday!  A new week has begun!  While I did indeed do some more painting in the kitchen Saturday (Someone please remind me next time that kitchens are a lot of tedious detail work…), I took some sanity time in my craft room and created not one, but three cards that I’ll be sharing on different days throughout the week!  I made sure I made a masculine card as I wanted to be on time today with that weekly promise!

Since Mother’s Day has now come and gone, my mind seems to automatically start thinking about Father’s Day!

Stamps:  Paper Trey (Enjoy the Ride, Pond Life), The Craft’s Meow
Paper:  SU cardstock (Brushed Silver, Pacific Point)
Ink:  Encore (Silver), SU (Pacific Point, Basic Black)
Accessories:  gemstones, foam dots

I stamped a strip of dots to ground my design.  I then stamped the car image on SU’s Brushed Silver cardstock and cut it out, popping it up on top of the dots.  I stamped a simple sentiment and added clear gemstones to the headlights just for fun.  You can probably guess what the inside says!

DS3 and I will be running errands this morning since the day is starting off with a chilly greeting.  Once groceries are put away, it will be back to painting for me!

This is a peek at the BEFORE:

The grey and yellow are going as well as that red window panel!  The grey was there when we bought the home, as was the red decor, but it’s time for a change!  The majority of the trim work is done, so that is good!  The paint rolling goes a lot faster and DH hopes to get home from work a little earlier than usual today, so that will help!

Have a marvelous Monday!

    Awesome guy card! I'd never have thought to stamp on silver cardstock but this looks amazing! The gem headlights are awesome and I love the dots. 🙂 Hope the painting is continuing to move along! And I agree – kitchens (and bathrooms) are so tedious to paint!
