Father's Day


Well, Mother's Day is over, sadly, and it's time to start thinking Father's Day.
I love the "Just BeeCuz" stamp set from Red Rubber Designs BeeCuz it's so versatile.   The antique vehicle here is one image from that set and makes a great Father's Day card.  I paired it up with the "You're the best" sentiment from that set as well. 
In case you're thinking I paired this up with some cool yellow gingham paper, think again.   I stamped this gingham background stamp from RRD in Pallete Ink's Sunflower onto cream cardstock.   Since I really like gingham, I think this will have endless possibilities and color combinations.  Plus it's a large stamp so it will easily cover a card front.
I did lots of layering of paper here too and some came from RRD's Hemingway collection.  That's what I created the pennant from.  But I first stamped that with the script stamp from the Vintage Backgrounds set.  I also stamped that once on my gingham background which you can see behind my Father's Day sentiment.
Other stamps used are the Father's Day sentiment from the Contemporary Greetings set.
