Father's Day Card Idea with Stampin' Up! Varsity Alphabet

Looking for a fun Father's Day Card idea?
Father's Day Card Idea by Kelly Rose a.k.a. Roseyscrapper

The base is Not Quite Navy card stock. The background panel was made using the emboss resist technique.   I randomly stamped the leaf image from Day of Gratitude on a 4 x 5 1/4 panel of patterned paper with VersaMark® after rubbing with the embossing buddy. Generously sprinkle with clear embossing powder, shake off excess and heat emboss.
I wanted a small print pattern; I thought that would look more masculine.  This pattern is from the retired paper pack Well Worn (2011-2012).
I used a sponge to apply Not Quite Navy ink all over the paper making sure to get into all the detailed areas of the leaf images.  Then I rubbed, more randomly, some Early Espresso ink around the leaf images. Using a soft cloth I rubbed the ink off the stamped and embossed images. I spritzed the background panel with Gold Glow Smooch Spritz® I also sponged the edges of the card base with early espresso.
The letters were stamped in Not Quite Navy on Crumb Cake card stock, hand cut out with Paper Snips (the best for "fussy" cutting), then sponged the edges with early Espresso.  In the fine detailed line around the edge of the letters I added Gold Lame Smooch® Pearlized Accent Ink (retired).
I mounted the letters with Stampin' Dimensionals® on 1 3/8" Square Early Espresso punchies that had also been spritzed with Gold Glow Smooch Spritz®.  The ribbon is 3/8" Soft SuedeTaffeta Ribbon.
The inside sentiment "on a scale from one to ten YOU'RE AN 11", stamped on 4 x 5 1/4" Crumb Cake card stock, is from the retired hostess set Perfect Words (2011-2012).
You could do this card with all kinds of different color schemes, patterned paper, stamped images and letter stamps.  Have fun! And if I helped you out, let me know by leaving a comment!
Have a FABULOUS day!
