Fun Month Ahead!I know Mother's Day falls before Father's Day, but with the beautiful papers from one of our co-sponsors, The Robin's Nest, I couldn't wait to use them on a Father's Day card.
Actually, we have two co-sponsors over at Sketch~N~Scrap this month: The Robin's Nest and The Paper Bakery. Sketch~N~Scrap turns TWO this month, so we are having a special month full of sketches, prizes, and lots of special fun.
We hope you will find time to play along with one or all of our challenges this month, because TWO lucky participants will be winning a prize this month....that's right we have TWO prizes instead of one this month to celebrate Sketch~N~Scrap turning TWO!!!
Our first prize sponsor is The Robin's Nest:
The Robin's Nest is a manufacturing company specializing in scrapbook paper, stickers, and our most favorite embellishment: Dew Drops. We are a family owned business and have been creating fabulously elegant products since 1998. We try to support the mom and pops stores, so you cannot find our products in any Big Box stores. Buy Local. If you do not have a local craft store, you can buy our products on our online shop: www.robinsnest-scrap.com. We create to Inspire. The Robin's Nest is offering a $15 gift certificate to one lucky participant!!!
Our next awesome sponsor is The Paper Bakery:
Paper Bakery is your one-stop kit shop for all of your paper crafting needs. Whether you are looking to finish some layouts, complete an album, fit scrapbooking into your busy life, or get messy with paints we are your answer. We offer 4 different kit options at this time: Scrapbook Kit, Mixed Media Kit, Capture 365 Kit, and Project Kit. Even though all 4 of these kits are planned separately, all 4 of these kits coordinate with each other. Paper Bakery does this on purpose so you can mix and match kits! Paper Bakery Kits will be fun for any type of crafter too! From beginner to advanced, a Paper Bakery kit will work for you!
Ok, now back to the first card sketch...here is the sketch, done by Kelli Hollifield:
Awesome, right? I love this sketch, and I love how this Father's Day card turned out...
I used the brand new Lodge Collection papers from The Robin's Nest. All the supply links can be found below. The plaid paper is just so "dad". It is on the reverse side of the Compass Cardstock. Mixed with the striped side of the Belgian Chocolate cardstock, it makes a striking, manly combination that fits this card perfectly.
The top layers were cut from the Lodge Cutouts cardstock and inked with some blue chalk ink. A little scrap ribbon and a couple of buttons with some floss finish off the card.
For the inside, I used a computer generated sentiment and mounted it on some more of that awesome paper.
I hope you enjoyed my card and are inspired to play along with us at Sketch~N~Scrap. I will be hosting on the hop on May 21st, so get ready for some fun!
Til next time, keepin' it crafty!
