MMM - Father's Day card

This week at Make My Monday the challenge is to create a Father's Day card - this one is for my dad take a look

I masked off the sides of the card and sponged the centre with More Mustard and Cherry Cobbler S'U inks - I then stamped some of the images from the French Foliage set and removed the masks.
I inked the sides of the card and added more stamped images. The border is card stock edged with the scallop punch and I have then cut out some stamped leaves and popped them up with 3D foam pads.
My sentiment is from a papermania set and is also attached with foam pads.
There are some gorgeous cards this week from my design team so I do hope you can pop over and take a look.

We are contemplating a trip to the coast at the moment - unfortunately not for pleasure. My daughter discovered over the weekend that her new student residence was flooded out in Aberystwyth - luckily she was home safe but I feel a clean up operation is on the cards!
Bye for now - Jacqueline xx


  1. Lovely colours on this card. Hope your daughter's place isn't in too bad a state. Hugs, Buttons x

  2. Ooooh, what a lovely card Jacqueline, such warm, rich colours! This makes me want to break out my French Foliage set so thanks for the inspiration! Ruth x

  3. I love French Foliage and this is a great card - I'm sure he will love it. Sorry to hear about the flooding - hope it isn't too bad.

  4. French foliage is one of my favourites and I love this card - sure your Dad will too. Hope the flooding isn't too bad.

  5. Love this card - gorgeous! The colours are sublime! Hope your daughter's place isn't too badly damaged. M x

  6. An absolute stunner Jacqueline and love the shabby inky effects on here.
    Sorry to hear about your daughter's accommodation and hope it gets sorted out without too much hassle.
    Luckily for my nephew he came home the Jubilee weekend so has missed it all.
    Hugs, Fliss xx

  7. When I saw this on the DT blog, all I could do was gasp in delight! This is GORGEOUS--if that is an appropriate term for a masculine card. ;) LOVE the colors you used--this is amazing!!! :)

  8. I love this take on French Foliage... one of my favourite stamp sets ever! The colours are stunning!
    So sorry to hear about your daughter's place. Hope the flooding isn't too bad and that damage is easily rectified. It was awful seeing all the flooding on the news recently.

  9. What a gorgeous card - it almost looks like a shadow box, it's so dimensional! So sorry to hear about your daughter's flooding problem. Vicky x

  10. Love your shading on your card, so effective. Super use of your stamps too. x
