Father's Day Card

Looking for a Father's Day card idea...here's a simple one, but the texture adds a wow factor.  I simple can't get enough of using the Textured impressions embossing folders from Stampin' Up!.  The embossed image is so crisp and I think it adds so much to a card without going overboard.

The colors of ink and paper used were Kraft, Soft Suede, Not Quite Navy and Very Vanilla. 
Tools used were the Big Shot, Square Lattice Textured Embossing folder (Summer Mini 2010), Paper Piercing Tool, Mat Pack, Paper Snips, Earth Element Brads, and Stampin Dimensionals.
Paper sizes are: Card--4 1/4 x 11", Textured piece--4 x 5 1/4", Soft Suede strip is 1" x 4", Not Quite Navy strip is 1/4" x 4". 
Stamp the Father's Day image twice on Very Vanilla cardstock, once in Not Quite Navy, once in Soft Suede.  Cut out the Soft Suede "Father" portion and use snail adhesive to glue over the Not Quite Navy image.  Assemble card as shown.  Use stampin dimensionals to adhere the Happy Father's Day image.
Please let me know if you have any questions and I'd love to receive your comments on my blog!!
Thanks for looking,
Kelly
