Father's Day Gentleman

Hey everyone - Back with a quick card for the latest Let's Squash It!! challenge to use three embossing folders and a person image. Had to think about it for a bit but came up with this:

Supplies: Paper - Paper Studio; Authentique Suave 6x6
Stamps - Divinity Designs Artistic Outpost Hats Off;
Paper Smooches (NIB) All Year Cheer
Embossing Folders - Sizzix Tim Holtz Argyle;
Stampin' Up Subtle; Darice Woodgrain
Dies - A Jillian Vance Design Dot Stitched Rectangles
Inks - Black Soot & Pumice Stone Distress;
Memento Rich Cocoa

I was flipping through my stamps looking for people images and found the fabulous Hats Off set. Figured I might as well go for a masculine card and enter it at Watercooler Wednesday but - oops - that challenge closed already. Oh well.... 

One of my embossing folders stands out and the other two blend in. The kraft background is embossed with Tim Holtz's Argyle, then I rubbed some Pumice Stone ink across it to enhance the texture. Next I embossed the stamped gentleman image with Stampin' Up's Subtle ef - just love the effect!! I stamped the sentiment strip and embossed it with Darice's Woodgrain ef, then rubbed some ink over parts of it. Assembled everything & done!!

Wow - I'm getting ahead of myself since I made my Father's Day card before I've even thought about Mother's Day!! I think my Dad will get a kick out of the old fashioned gentleman.

Thanks for stopping and enjoy the rest of your day!! I hope you'll visit again tomorrow when I'll be sharing a card for Die Cut Divas!

Great card, Linda! Love the different EFs AND that fabulous image too. Thanks for getting Squashy with us, Jo x

This looks great Linda, I'm guessing the texture on the gentleman makes it look like an image on canvas in real life. Love the bit on woodgrain on the sentiment strip!
