I Appreciate You So Much!

Happy Wednesday!  I have a card to share today using the new inspiration from The Card Concept Challenge.  

This challenge is Fun at the Lake  

Hope you can join us and play along.

I was inspired by the colors and stripes of the two canteens.  I created a Clean and Graphic styled Father's Day card. 

For my card, I started select white card stock.  I used my MISTI to stamp the background pattern using Pinkfresh Studio Nested Diamond background stamp.  I love how this background stamp separates making stamping assorted colors backgrounds or embossing areas possible.  This is what I did. I gold embossed, used a green, and a red ink to mimic the colors on the canteens in the inspiration photo.  

I used Waffle Flowers A2 Rectangle die to die cut the panel.  I used Arteza foam tape to pop it up onto a cocoa bean card stock background.   I used cocoa bean card stock again to die cut the letters using Pinkfresh Studio Adore Alpha dies.   I also used Tim Holtz metallic gold kraft card stock for the alpha accent elements.  

For the sentiment,  I used Simon Says Stamp All the Thanks stamp set for the sentiment.  I used Honey Bee stamps Sentiment Banners die.  I  used Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive
to finished the card with a few clear sequins.
