Squiggly Saturday


This week at Scrap, Stamp & Doodle Saturdays is all about Dad! We want to see your Father's Day cards! You know you made yours already...it would only be the men in our lives that would actually wait until the day before (OK...the day of...) to get a card. :)


SSDS is being sponsored this week by Squigglefly! In fact, my image above is from their website! Isn't it darling? Squigglefly has all of it and a bag of chips! (Their section called After Dark is SO FUNNY!!)

As for my project, I wanted my card to have a vintage feel...so I made it black and white as if you were seeing it in an old photo album. On the middle layer, I sanded down white core black paper to give it a worn look. I had really wanted to use photo corners...the black ones I had were MIA so I used brads instead. Of course just just yesterday I ended up finding the photo corners "hiding" right where they normally live. Is this what getting old is like??!! :)

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend celebrating Dad!

Stamps: First Dance, sentiments from SU
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, CTMH Black paper
Ink: Copics to color
Accessories: SU Brads & Ribbon, Stickles, Ticket Corner Punch
