Making Father Grand

My parents go by “grandmother and grandfather” to their grandchildren.  I am always amazed at how hard it is to find items using these “titles” as opposed to “grandma and grandpa.”  Fortunately the set Wonderful Favorites has “grand” in it and I can change things up a bit.  So here’s a Grandfather’s Day card for my kiddos to give their grandfather

I used The Open Sea to make the actual card.  The sentiment is from Best Dad Ever combined with Wonderful Favorites. 

The anchor was cut out and used to frame the “grand.”  The thread in the buttons is really thin strips of Early Espresso card stock.

The sailboat was stamped and punched out with the 2 1/2 circle stamp and then sponged. 

Stamp Sets – The Open Sea, Best Dad Ever, Wonderful Favorites
card stock – Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Nautical Expedition DSP
Ink – Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Night of Navy
Etc – 2 1/2 circle punch, neutral buttons, Word Window punch

Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran
