Father's Day Card for Die-namites June Sketch and Dare Challenge

Hi everyone,  I had a great time this weekend playing with my little nephew Cooper.  He spent all day Saturday with me, and I shared with him the Gelli Plate. My entire dining room table was covered in gorgeous prints.  I saved back a few of his prints, to create Father's day cards.  Here is little Cooper pulling what he called his favorite print - which he promptly took home to keep. LOL - I love this so much!

I decided to participate in this Month's Sketch & Dare Challenge over on the Die-namite's blog.  Here is the sketch.
I used the Leafy Flowers die in my blog post today.

On this print, Cooper used Plaid's Kiwi and English Navy Apple Barrel craft paints with the Crafter's Workshop Gear stencil.  It made a really interesting looking print.  Very Masculine!   So I decided to cut my die from navy blue, and use the same cardstock for my card base.  The card is an A2 top folding card.  

Lately, I've been practicing hand lettering for card sentiments.  So this seemed like a perfect opportunity to doodle the sentiment for the front and inside of the card.

Here is a process video of me creating the card from start to finish.  I think I might give this card to Coop to share with his Dad.
