Just a Little Late!!!

This is what I gave the Dad's for Father's Day this year. It was all inspired by this card that I found on EnchantINK. She has used an old White Pages phone book for the background paper....how cool!!!!

This is my version.

Now you are not seeing double. I actually did 2 different versions. On the 2nd card...I sponged the edges of the tags and sentiments,,,the effect being a tad more vintage.

This is unsponged...

This is sponged....

I also put the strip with the sentiment on it through the crimper...again, just to bloke it up a bit. Sadly this is not really reflected in any of the pics I took!!!!

The old vintage dictionary paper was a bargain find at Alice's. Only 50 cents a sheet (12 x 12)...so I did my crafting patriotic right and stocked up!!! Sorry it took so long to post these, but it is a case of better late than never!!!

Stuff used:
CS: (SU) Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Vintage Dictionary DP fm Alice's (non SU)
Ink:(SU) Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip Stamp and Write Marker
Stamps: (SU) Teeny Tiny Sentiments, Whimsical Lowercase Alphabet (ret.)
Punches: (SU) Word Window Punch, Small Tag Punch
Other bits: Pewter Brads, Crimper, Twine, SU Dimensionals

What a FABULOUS idea for a man's card - they often look a little too plain but the dictionary paper is perfect! Good on you for stocking up - LOL
