For dad


Made this card for my dad <3

The base is kraft cardstock, my first layer is black coredination cardstock with a brown core, sanded, and my second layer is corrugated paper and DecoArt acrylic paint. I then made three layers using watercolor paper and distress oxides.

The big star in the center is made with a Tim Holtz die and the star that's like a frame around it is made with a Set Apther die. I cut them out in watercolor paper and used acrylic paint from DecoArt and distress oxides to color them. Then embossed them with baked texture from Emerald Creek/Seth Apter. I used deep sea, rocky road and a touch of dirty sand.

For the star panel I used baked texture dirty sand 
and the metal decoration stars are from Tim Holtz.

I used my word play alphabet die from Sizzix/Tim Holtz to cut out 'dad' and then treated the letters the same way as the center stars. Absolutely LOVE these embossing powders from Emerald Creek/Seth Apter. I used some of it on my layers as well.
