A Special Father's Day Card

Father's Day is this Sunday, June 21st, and I have made a few simple masculine cards. It is often a challenge for me to leave off the flower and sparkles, but with stamps like this amazing lighthouse from the "Keep My Lamp Burning" collection at Our Daily Bread Designs.

This card is for my very special uncle who has been like my own father. My own father died suddenly when I was very young. He was my uncle's little brother. I love my uncle very much for all that he and my aunt (see the Mother's Day card for her) have done for us.

I stamped the image on Kraft paper, as well as the sentiment. The card base is also Kraft paper. The DP is scrapbook paper I recently purchased, but I forgot to get the name before I attached it to the card. With black card stock to highlight the image and a touch of herringbone ribbon and gold pearls, I like what is see.

The inside will have a personal note. I also stamped his favorite Bible verse which was in the ODBD set "He Is Risen". His love for our Lord and Saviour is the foundation of his life, and he is an inspiration to so many.
Thanks for stopping by. The time you spend here and the comments you leave are much appreciated!
