I have previously mentioned that my parents are going through some health problems due to their age. At this time my father needs more assistance than my mother can provide so it has become necessary to place him in assisted living. He is not totally thrilled with this but my sisters have made a great effort to transport mom to and from the facility to spend time with him almost every day.
I plan to visit them soon and wanted to make a card for Dad that would be comforting and remind him that the Lord is in control of what is happening. I just received the Our Daily Bread Designs’ Fishing Boat and Fishing stamp sets and thought these would be perfect for him. I stamped the boat image over a background I created using my new Color Bursts and layered it behind a window die.
I inked the sentiment. from the Fishing set, with two different Distress Inks, using a darker blue on the outer edges, and stamped it on a lighter section of the designer paper, then layered this on yellow cardstock.
If you have had a chance to play with the Color Bursts, they are very vivid colors. I used a wipe to clean up and it had such lovely color on it that I used it to create the border across the card front, along with Spellbinders’ Scalloped Borders One, and also used it for the layer behind the designer paper.
I can’t wait to see my parents and I hope this card will be an encouragement to dad.
