Altenew Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop + Giveaway

Welcome to the Altenew Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop and Giveaway. You should have arrived here from TaeEun Yoo, if not you can go back to the start of the hop by visiting  Altenew Card Blog.

Our goal is to send cards for the elderly that lives in nursing homes or shelters to let them know they’re not forgotten.You can find more information about the card drive here

I have created a card to show my Dad how much I appreciate him. I started by inking through the Sketched Lines stencil, I decided on a tone on tone look, I used Aqualcious ink on a card stock that's the same colour.

I then took the Angled Mosaic embossing folder and added some of the Aqualicious ink to it and embossed a piece of white card with it. I love the effect it gives. I stamped and coloured a couple of images from the Best Dad stamp set again keeping the Aqualicious color prominent.

I die cut the word dad using the Bold Caps and bold lowercase alphabets. I added all the pieces to my card base and finished with a sentiment from the Best Dad stamp set.
