Bees For Father's Day

Time to be moving on to our next group of card giving events! Father's Day, Weddings, and Graduations! Boy howdy, it's time to get a move on! 
I had gotten 3 of the $15 grab bags from Stampin' Up! recently and part of what came in them was a large stack of Mellow Moss cardbases. Mellow MOss used to be one of my favorite colors, and I am sure that I was not alone :) It goes VERY well with Soft Suede, and look how great they both work with Nature gone, but I still love it!
The bee stamping on the Mellow Moss is done with Always Artichoke stamped off once so it wouldn't be overwhelming.

Inside the card, I stamped the plant image and a non-SU sentiment that I think goes very well with this set. It would be super easy to print this sentiment from your computer to add to your card. 
  • Stamps: Nature Walk, Teeny Tiny wishes
  • Paper: Mellow Moss, Soft Suede, Naturals Ivory
  • Ink: Soft Suede, Always Artichoke
  • Other: Designer Label punch, Signo white gel pen

So there it is, a nice mellow card for Dad  :)  What do you think?

A lovely card, Tanya! I also miss Mellow Moss and pairing it with Soft Suede is very striking.

Gorgeous card! The sentiment is lovely (writing it down!) and you are so right about those colors together. I got some of that same batch - can't wait to try it. TFS!
