Father's Day Card

I found this great sketch at the Freshly Made Sketches blog and used it to make my husband's Father's Day Card this year.

Isn't the stamp set adorable? It's from the new Superhero line at CTMH. At first when I saw it I thought it would only work for kids playing dress-up but now that I have it I see summer photos, 4th of July layouts and fun masculine and boy cards like this.

If you'd like to make a card similar here are my measuremens for a standard A2 card:
  • Base Card: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"
  • Cranberry Cardstock: 3 1/2" x  2" (shortened by scallop border punch)
  • Black Mats: 4 1/2" x 3" and 3 7/16" x 2 1/2"
  • Pattern Paper: 4 3/8" x 2 13/16"
  • White Cardstock: 2 3/8" x 3 3/8"
Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Paper:Superhero Level 2, White Cardstock, Black Cardstock, Cranberry Cardstock
Stamps: Super Powers
Ink: Archival Black, Cranberry
Other: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Watercolor Pencils, Watercolor Pen, Bakers Twine - Neutral Assortment

Here's the fabulous sketch:
