Dear, Happy Father's Day Card

Wanted to use a stamp set I bought quite some time ago, Inkadinkado stamp-a-story Trees. It has 8 stamps which includes the 1 Deer stamp & 7 Trees. Used several inks to create the woods scene. Used a Stampin' Up sentiment but also decided to personalize with my calligraphy 'Dear' as a play on word 'Deer.' Embossed the sentiment tag & base of card with the Paper Studio Woodgrain embossing folder for an even more woodsy look.

Supplies List

calligraphy: hand wrote 'Dear,'
embossing: the Paper Studio Woodgrain embossing folder
inks: Memento - Bamboo Leaves, Cottage Ivy, Rich Cocoa, Tuxedo Black,
   Stampabilities Lime Green
paper - cardstock - Kraft, blue
