Getting Cricky DT Post - #1 Dad

Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a fabulous week!! This is a scheduled post so crossing fingers it works ;) It's my turn to post at Getting Cricky and I have a birthday card to share with you today.


Both of my parents celebrate birthdays the first part of May, so this one is for my Dad, whose b-day comes first :)


The patterned paper for this tri-fold card is from 7 Gypsies Venice stack. The black cardstock is from The Paper Studio. The car on the bottom fold is a stamp from the Tim Holtz Road Trip set. It was stamped with Versafine ink in Black Onyx. The #1 Dad stamp is from K Andrew Designs Guy Talk stamp set.


The paper on the top fold was embossed with a Tim Holtz Blueprints and Gears Embossing Folder. It was inked with TH Vintage Photo Distress Ink, as were all the edges. The gears are Spellbinders Sprightly Sprockest dies. They were embossed with Ranger Rust Antiquities Embossing Powder. The silver studs are from my stash.


Both folds open to reveal the inside...this would be a great time to remind you to link up your More Than One Fold card at Paper Playtime :) "Happy" is from K Andrew Designs Winter Wishes stamp set and "Birthday" is from Coffee & Tea For You & Me. These two sets are sold out, but the Guy Talk and a few others are still available at 60% off. Click HERE to get your stamps today :)

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
  2. DL.Art Thankful Thursday- April Linky Party
  3. Sunday Funday #8 - April Linky Party
Thanks so much for stopping by!! I'll be around to visit you when I get back :)

My sweetest friend, your dad is going to flip over this masterpiece! Not only is the fold fantastic, but you used so much texture! It's incredible. The heat-embossed sprockets look marvelous atop the dry embossing. And what's to say about the car? That stamp is perfect, especially alongside a sweet sentiment. :o) Marvelous work as always, my talented friend! I'm excited for him to receive this and I can't wait to see your mom's! :o) I hope you're enjoying your trip!

Hugs and blessings!
