Mojo #290 {A Simple Father's Day Card}

I spent some time looking over the Stampin Up retired lists that came out yesterday. Lots of stamp sets are retiring! For a full list, click here. Also, a number of accessories/embellishments are also retiring. - click here to see this list. I've already gone through, crossing off what I already have and highlighting the items that I want to get before they are gone! I also had a sneak peek at the new catalogue - some great new stamp sets and embellishments! Can't wait to share some of these new products with you!

For today's card, I decided to make a simple Father's Day card using a great sketch from Mojo Monday.

I love the four squares in this sketch. I wanted to use a stamp set with small characters/images in it. I came across "A Fitting Occasion" and thought it would be perfect!

I chose the tie stamp and stamped it in all four squares in Night of Navy. I used Well Worn DSP for the bottom half of the card and wrapped Soft Suede taffeta ribbon around it. I stamped and fussy-cut the letters that spell "DAD". They are popped up using dimensionals.

I love how the designer paper and the argyle design in the letters match so nicely! At first I thought this card was too simple, but I actually really like it!

Thanks for stopping by!
