Remember this Dad?

Hi crafters,
I've got a card to show you today that tells a story lol.
When my sister and I went away on holiday in our late teens, my Dad decided to varnish the louvre doors on our wardrobes. However,  he didn't think to empty the wardrobes first so all our clothes inside had a stripe of varnish on all the sleeves- aaargghh. We were absolutely horrified as most of our clothes were ruined! So when I saw this LOTV stamp, I knew what I had to do for his birthday card.
I coloured the image with my promarkers,  cut around it and placed it on the wardrobe doors. I used glossy accent on the brush and on top of the doors to represent the varnish and embossed the background to make it look  wallpaper on the bedroom walls!
 He laughed out loud when he saw the card but couldn't believe that we were still thinking about it so many years later. I don't think we'll ever forget it!!
I'd like to enter my card in this week's challenge at Passion for Promarkers which is ' one for the boys/men'.
Thanks for looking,
Karen xx


  1. Funny story behind this great card, Karen! Love the embossed background as wallpaper, the sweet image and fab use of Glossy Accents for the varnish! A really personal card - you'd never find one like that in the shops...fantastic! Hugs, Lisa x

  2. Love the colouring
    I had to chuckle when I read why you made the card with wardrobes, it's something my Dad would do.
