In New Zealand, we celebrate Father's Day on the first Sunday of September. So I am getting a head start on some ideas for this special day. This Father's Day card is brought to you by the Traveler stamp set, one of my favourites in the Annual Catalogue...

There are many reasons why I love the Traveler stamp set. From a practical point-of-view, this stamp set has images that are gender neutral and are very easy to use for masculine cards. On a personal note, the stamp set has lovely, detailed sketched images that make me smile and want to use them.

For my Father's Day card I stuck to neutrals to go with the vintage look of the camera - Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede and the Typeset Specialty DSP. All the elements are sponged in Soft Suede ink, which gives it a soft sepia-look.
