Father's Day Golf Nut

I have been very fortunate to have won 2 challenge prizes recently where I had vouchers for the Bugaboo store. I have been a fab of Jodie's images for many years so was absolutely delighted to have such an awesome prize.

This card has been made using one of the images I bought Nuts About Golf

It is Fathers day in the UK this weekend and my Father in law is a bit of a golf nut so this image is perfect for him. The image is coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers with gold gel pen checks n the hat, and silver pen on the golf club.

I used the latest Stella Say Sketch from the Catch The Bug Challenge blog for the layout.

I used an A4 sheet of brown card for the base and added a panel of check patterned paper. To this a strip of brown card from a Papermania paper embellishment caddy that I have had in my stash for many years. This has been cut using a Fiskars border punch. Under this is is a layer of gold ribbon.

The image has been matted onto gold card and an offcut of a brown checked card from my scraps drawer.

The golf nut sentiment is from the same image set. It has a little heart which I coloured in with a gel pen but it smudged so I added a gem heart to it. He will never know :) This is was mounted into a circle frame from the Papermania caddy.

The Happy father's Day sentiment is a freebie from Desert Diva. Hannelie makes amazing Clean & Simple cards and is very generous with freebie sentiment digi stamps. 

I coloured the sentiment with a Promarker and mounted onto scraps of the gold and checked card. All elements have been layered using foam squares. Finally I added gold Card Candi dots from Craftwork cards to match the metallic layers.

Finally I used the same sentiment stamp and made a gift tag to match for the beer and whisky we have bought him. I added an eyelet using my Fiskars spring loaded eyelet setter. I haven't used it for absolutely ages.

Sentiment - Father's Day Sentiments by Desert Diva
