Swing!

>> Tuesday, June 13, 2017

Hi Everyone,

With Father's day being at the end of this week, it was time for me to make my annual golfing card for my dad.  Lucky for me, (and my dad!), DRS Designs always has just what I need to make that happen!

I stamped and  colored up Golfer Duff using my Copic markers, and then die cut and matted the cute image.  In keeping with the masculine look I used an argyle embossing folder for the background and made a piece of patterned paper as an accent.  I used the Argyle Diamond stamp and stamped alternating rows of yellow and green.  I thought it was so easy just eyeballing it, I didn't use any stamp positioner, but if you are super fussy, go right ahead.  I added a tiny scalloped border and adhered it to the base adding the image along with some photo corners.


 Golfer Duff looks so satisfied, like he just got a hole in one, that I knew I wanted to use the Ain't Got that Swing greeting to finish the card :)

Thanks for the visit and I wish you all a happy rest of the week!

Ol' Duff sure looks spiffy, Karin! Much better than the old golf plaid ugly pants of years ago, lol. Love the argyle band on the side along w/ the argyle embossing.
