Because I could not be home for his birthday, I sent him a handmade greeting card (of course!). My Dad LOVES to read, so I thought this card would be perfect:
Now it's time for...
It was my turn to choose the photo and I came across this cute Hobo bag on Etsy:
I think this bag is adorable! It reminds me of spring time with the bright colours and tree images. This bag was handmade by "Petunias" (check out their shop on Etsy!)
In looking at this photo, I see circles, trees, Island Indigo, Pool Party, Basic Grey, and Old Olive. I knew exactly how I was going to design my card!
I love how it turned out! It's a clean and simple card, but I added some detail. I think I've mentioned it before, but I just love the Sycamore Street DSP from Sale-a-Bration. The colours and designs are so fun! I offset the Pool Party cardstock and distressed it with Stampin Up's new distressing tool. The white cardstock is embossed with the Vine Street embossing folder (Sale-a-Bration item). The tree is created with multiple circles. I cut the tree trunk free hand and added a rhinestone to embellish the tree.
