Hip Card for Dad

Just a quick post to share the card I made for my hubby to send to his dad for Father's Day:


No stamps were harmed in the making of this card! All of the patterned paper and elements came from the digital Social Club collection by Cosmo Cricket. Even though I didn't use any stamps, I did use some ink to distress the edges :).

I made this card for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge #173, to make a Father's Day card. I would have used Flourishes stamps for it if I could--but I don't own any masculine Flourishes stamps! I'm also entering this in Papercraft Star's Challenge #101, Father's Day.

Thanks for dropping in!
Emily

Paper: Whisper White CS Stampin’ Up!, natural CS; Digital elements: Swingin’ digital paper; letters, hat, sunglasses digital elements from Social Club collection by Cosmo Cricket
Ink: Tea Dye Distress by Ranger Industries
Accessories: circle punch, sewing machine

I sometimes think that I should break into the digi world, but I'm so disorganized with the stamps in front of me, not sure that's a good idea. Great card.

I love the pops of colour! And hats. Awesome hats :)
I have a nosy question - do you print out your digi elements at home? What kind of printer do you have? Because I can't get anything to print out in a way I like, so I'm reluctant to do digi papers.
