So for the colors the challenged called for calypso coral, so saffron and pear pizzazz. The themed challenge was to use stencils and to mash it up, use a retiring stamp set. Since I knew that I wanted to create a Father's Day card, I wanted to use the Gently Falling stamp set. This has been one of my very favorite sets. I have used it for so many projects and am very sad to see it go. I stamped the leaves in the three colors, and stamped the outline with early espresso. The paper doily has also been inked up in early espresso. For the stenciling part of the challenge, I used the polka dot stencil from the banner kit and sponged in so saffron. I love how I can recycle and reuse these stencils for other types of projects other than for the banners. I added a strip of burlap and topped it off with a wooden button, tied with gold bakers twine.
For the inside, I used the same stencil and sponged in so saffron again. I placed it on my cardstock so that the cut out circle was in the lower corner. This is then where I stamped my sentiment, leaving room for my added hand written message.
