Happy 80th Birthday Dad!

With both of my parents having a birthday in August, as well as several other family members, I have been busy making cards, and no time to put them on my blog.  My Father’s birthday is the first one, as a matter of fact, it is today!  Happy 80th birthday Dad!  I wanted to make a card and again used butterflies and muted colors to make a masculine card.

Here is what I came up with…


I used some stamps and inks from Stampin Up to create this card.  I also used an embossing folder I have had for some time, but rarely used it.  I got the inspiration for this card from a post I saw on Pinterest.

Another look…


A peek inside. . .


I embossed the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp using Chocolate Chip ink from Stampin Up and clear embossing powder. 

And one final look…


Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
