Father Figure

Tomorrow is the day that Verve Visual releases two new sets! Yesterday on the Verve Visual blog, the Design Team featured sneak peeks of one of the sets. Today, there are sneak peeks of the other set, Father Figure. If you've been looking for a set that's great for the men in your life, look no further! My husband has been after me to create some framed scrapbook pages for the entryway of our home. I've been putting it off, but this set gave me the inspiration to start. This one is for my husband. We were taking a walk on the trail a week ago. Savannah wanted to ride her bike and Arwen didn't want to ride in the double stroller that mommy was pushing. As my husband and the two girls were walking and riding along, I decided to stop and take a picture from behind. I printed the picture out using the Antique photo option on our printer. All of the words are stamped with Jet Black StazOn on acetate (transparency sheets). I cut apart the paragraph of words and used them to line the photo. I stamped the row of dots in Whisper White Craft ink to line the photo on the striped patterned paper. I used the punched circles of patterned paper to tie the stripes and dots together. The page fit in an 8x10 frame that my husband had painted white to go with our pale yellow walls in the entryway. Now I can't wait for him to hang it on the wall!

Want to be the proud owner of this new set? All you need to do is leave a comment on this post by 10PM MT (midnight ET) on April 24. Then be sure to check back on April 25, when we’ll announce the lucky winner and reveal the new Verve sets! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Father Figure (Verve Visual); Paper- patterned (Wild Asparagus), acetate; Ink- Jet Black StazOn, Whisper White Craft (SU); Accessories- 1", 3/4" circle punches

Thanks for the idea of this card. Both of my sons have photos of them walking across a bridge with their child, with them backs to the camera. I would LOVE to create a card for them for Father's Day, using this theme. THANKS!
