Belated Father's Day Card

I made this card for Father's Day.  I know that I did not get this posted in time but it is an overall good card idea for men.  Yes the card has flowers and ribbon and polka dots, but because of the colors you can pass it off as a masculine card.  Color choice is everything.  I like this card for its simplicity.  Everything is flat on the card except the center of the flower which is popped up with Dimensionals.

Stamp Set(s) - Mixed Bunch
Card Stock - Crumb Cake, Basic Black, and Whisper White
Ink - Basic Black, So Saffron
Accessories - 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Big Shot, Perfect Polka-Dot Embossing Folder, Blossom Punch, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch, Dimesionals, Scallop Border Punch

Betsy's Birds

This card uses one of the new sets and one of the new In Colors from the 2012-2013 Catalog.  The bird is inked up once in the new ink pad and then stamped three times without reinking.  The new stamp pads not only do a great job covering the solid images but also gets enough ink on the stamp to go a long way!  I popped up the Framelit with Dimensionals.  The Occasions Alphabet give you lots of options for this card!
