Simple Fathers Day

This week the challenge over at The Paper Players is to create a one layer card. Considering I don't like a lot of embellishments you'd think that this would be an easy challenge for me but nope, it sure wasn't! I finally decided on a nice, simple Fathers Day card.

I used the truck image from the set Countryside. This set is going to be retiring but that's ok, I'll still use it(if you come by my blog regularly you'll see I use a lot of retired stamps. As a hobby demo I buy sets because I like them and want to use them, for many yrs to come)! To help highlight the truck I scored some lines above and below the image, to create a frame of sorts.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise stated):
Stamps: Countryside, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Naturals White
Ink: Black StazOn, Not Quite Navy, Cajun Craze, Garden Green, Soft Suede, Riding Hood Red, Basic Black
Accessories: Simply Scored Tool, Aquapainter, Blender Pen


  1. Wow, Lisa! This is stunning. This is the first time I've ever liked this image, and I love it! Thanks for playing along with The Paper Players this week.

  2. Your one layered card is fantastic, Lisa! I love how the score lines really help highlight the truck image. The truck reminds me of the old truck that my grandpa had. I remember bouncing around in it while going over the narrow dirt roads to check on his fields with him or the pasture with the cows.

  3. This is a great card. I may have to purchase this set before it retires.

  4. A perfect Father's Day card! Your coloring is beautiful, and the score lines are the perfect touch! Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!

  5. Absolutely gorgeous, Lisa! Your shading is beautiful and I love the scored detail. Thank you so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players! :)
