Plaid papa (Ellen Hutson)

Hi there!

If you're looking for my Lawn Fawn post, scroll down or click HERE.

I'm thrilled to be showing off a card I made for my daddy for Father's Day. I haven't given it to him yet, so thank goodness he's not a social media kind of guy! We're waiting for the family to get together this weekend, and I think he'll love it.

The card was made using colors from this inspiration board:

It's always amazing to me that I could use colors that match but come out with a card that has such a different feel than the storyboard.  This is what I came up with:

I used the EBE Plaid Maker set to create the background plaid - I tried my best to keep it all straight but I don't mind the little imperfections - they make it all look more handmade and whimsical. Creating a background like this was an easy way to pull in all of the inspiration colors!

For the sentiment, I stamped the first part onto a sentiment banner and then used the Block Words to spell out B-E-S-T and the Classic Block Alpha dies to cut out P-A-P-A.

I hope you like it! Check out the Ellen Hutson blog for more color board interpretations - click!
