Encaustic Card

I finally feel up to some crafting and urgently needed to get a Father's Day card done for my step-dad so I could get it in the post. I have been so itching to start crafting again my mojo seems to be fully charged after the holiday even if I'm not...lol. For this card I decided it was time to get out my iron and waxes and do something a bit different.


My step-dad is scottish so I thought the tartan backgrounds (from Kanban) were a nice touch and worked well with the encaustic image I'd created. I've cut the image out with Labels 2 nesties and also cut a frame with them using black cardstock. The sentiment was done on the PC.
