A Father's Day Card

With my grandparent's recent visit, we did a little early celebration for Father's Day.  This way my grandpa would get a personal recognition we can't do on the actual Sunday in June.  Here's the details:

  •  The clocks were stamped with my Numeral Clocks stamp using brown Archival Ink and them die cit with the coordinating Once Upon a Time die.  Each piece was edged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
  • The background circles were cut with the Once Upon a Time die from textured cardstock.  
  • The patterned paper is from a very old pad of Colorbok paper.  I used a chevron stencil to create the brown and blue Ink Monoprint behind the clock cluster. 
  • The sentiment was stamped with the same Close to My Heart Moonstruck ink using my Simon Says Stamp set Very Special.  
  • On the inside I created this word art using text boxes in Word.  The circles are independent circular text boxes with no words inside.  The sentiment is a separate box with no border and no fill.  The font used is Algerian and I played with the color and size til it filled the smaller circle.  I've printed a couple of these and intended to make a few more cards.  
I've linked this card up over at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday blog: Father's Day - Masculine and Word Art Wednesday's Challenge #135- Anything Goes.  Come on over to get inspired and join the fun.  The real Father's Day is coming soon.  Are your cards ready?
