Happy Birthday Dad...

Please Scroll Down to See My Cupcake Inspirations Card!

Any man can be a Father but it takes someone special to be a Dad. -Anne Geddes

When I saw the One Layer Wednesday Challenge this week I new it was perfect for my Dad's Birthday card. My Dad is a pretty simple guy and likes Simple things, so I grabbed some tool images and made a little grouping of the hammer and the tool box in my PhotoSuite software, printed it on Confetti White paper and colored it up really quick with Copic Markers. Voila! Man Card. Done.

Well, not quite...I did add a little sentiment on the inside. :)

I printed the sentiment from Word, I think this is Perfect for my Dad, short and sweet! :)

Stamps: Hammer & Toolbox from Carpenter Joe (Tiddly Inks,) Computer Generated Sentiment
Paper: Confetti White (SU
Ink: Printer, Copics

One Layer Wednesday: 2 Images (Hammer and Toolbox) No Sentiment, No Embellishments

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Awesome card for a father!

  2. This is a great one layer card (I always have a hard time with these).

    FYI ~ The image you used is from Tiddly Inks and goes with the Carpenter Joe image. I just happened to be going through my Tiddly Inks images the other day to print out a few, so I recognized it right away.

  3. Now Rachel... is this a tenuous link?
    Our challenge is supposed to be a flower or tree... the tool carrier looks as though it's made of wood... as is the handle of the hammer... but...a tree?
    However, I love the card and I'm sure your dad will too!
    I hope you'll come back for another challenge next week!

  4. Og super card but I see no tree LOL
    Maybe as Chrissie says it;s the fact it's made of wood lol

    Hope to see you again...there's still time to play along with a flower or tree this week
