Father's Day Card ~ For Dad {2nd Post}

{If  you are here for my Path of Positivity GDT post go here}
{If  you are here for my TTCRD GDT post go here}

Each year I make a special card for my dear sweet father-in-law.
He collects and permanently displays each and every card I make him.
When I saw this lighthouse paper I knew it would perfect.
I added nautical embossing and the life preserver I created.
The sentiment is the perfect one to express our love for this man.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*World to me sentiment from the Take Note stamp from Verve Stamps.
*Dad sentiment from the World's Best stamp from Verve Stamps.
*Sentiment banner cut by hand to fit sentiment.
*Embossed using the Cuttlebug Anchors Aweigh folder.
*Preserver cut using 2 dies from the Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Circles die set.
*Design paper from
*Corners rounded using a Fiskars punch.
*Copic markers R37 and 100.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad.

May your day always be filled with love.
