Welcome!

My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Happy Father's Day!

Hi Everyone,
 
I thought I would share a card today in honor of the holiday.  I made it using the new
My Anchor set from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  It has great nautical elements, as well as a sentiment honoring dear old dad :)
 
Here is a peek at the whole set:
 
 
 
I made the background using Kraft card stock, the compass stamp and Clear Detail embossing powder.  I think the effect is simply striking! 
 
 
I stamped the rope detail to the border and embossed that as well using Silver Pearl embossing powder and finished off the bottom with Sticker Paper coated in Liberty glitter. 
 
Happy Father's Day one and all :)

Definitely like the clear-embossed background panel! Complements the glittery panel perfectly. Awesome card, Karin!
