Father's Day #2

Well hello and happy Thursday to you friends! Becky here today with a card I'm so excited about. My struggle with masculine cards just might be getting better. I made this card for my main squeeze for Father's Day. Have you guys seen the grid lines sets from Papertrey and their new grid lines cardstock? Well I have and I would have bought some if I wasn't already buying so much in my last order. So I had the idea for this card and simply made my own grid lines cardstock. I used Papertrey white cardstock and with a ruler and pencil drew very faint lines onto my paper going vertically and horizontally. Then I stamped my grill image, from Hero Arts July set, with Versamagic black ink, and heat embossed with clear powder. Then I stamped my star image, from Papertrey's new Let Freedom Ring set, with Palette Hybrid ink, and heat embossed it with clear powder. Then I erased my pencil marks and was left with this totally awesome, custom patterned paper. So cool! Then I adhered my black grosgrain ribbon and my letters from my Makin' the Grade Cartridge on pop dots. Then I stuck the whole thing to my 5x5 card base. I was pretty excited with the way this card turned out! Hope you have a great day!
Here's an up close look at the card.
