Father’s Day #1

Had fun making this to go along with this week’s challenge on the We Craft Cards Discord. It’s for my FIL for Father’s Day.

The fence is popped up, as well as the flower heads.

I actually used my friend Bonnie’s technique about printing on tissue paper and applying it. Had fun trying that and will definitely do it again.

The inside. So you can see the saying my son and I came up with.

Thank you for spending some of your valuable time with me today.


Sailboat Race

Okay, this is a fun card.  Let’s leave it at that.

Who doesn’t love an interactive card that you can actually have races with?  Used the MFT stamp set Party Like a Pirate for the sailboats and the seagulls.  The top sheet is one I did with alcohol inks.  The base card I just inked with some Distress Blueprint Sketch ink.  This is a penny slider card, so those boats slide across.  As I used two tiny pop dots, the ships don’t turn upside down, they just move across.  They tip a little, as the pop dots aren’t perfectly aligned on the pennies, but it is still fun.  Granted, I had to move them back and forth quite a few times to get them sliding properly.

Here’s the inside:

It’s not your typical Father’s Day card, but I’m pretty sure it will be enjoyed.

I’m entering this in MFT’s Sketch Challenge this week.  Take a look at the sketch and see what you think.  In fact, check out everyone else’s entries, as they are all so different and fun.  Putting it in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Blog challenge for a masculine card, too.

Have fun with whatever you’re doing.  Thanks for spending some time with me today!

2012 Father’s Day Cards

In the past couple of weeks I have made four Father’s Day cards.  Some of them you’ve already seen, but I thought I’d show them all to you here.

This one you’ve seen and is for my father-in-law.  He won’t be around this Sunday, so we’ll do Father’s Day with him when he gets back to town.

This one is for my father.  It looks much better in person, but I did a CAS (Clean And Simple) card with aged parchment paper for the background and embossed the pocket watch in gold.

You’ve seen this one, too.  It is from me to my husband for Father’s Day.  I definitely wouldn’t have made it raising the kids without his help.

This last one I just did, but didn’t stamp who it was made by as it is from my son to his father.  When I asked my son what color he wanted to “pop”, he looked at me like I was crazy.  I then explained the card was black and gray and he needed to choose a color to stand out.  He chose red.  It’s blank inside because he wants to explain the funny gift he is giving.

Thanks for spending some time with me today!  Don’t forget, Father’s Day is this Sunday.  It only takes a few minutes to make a special card for your dad or the man who is a father figure for you and the fact that you made it makes it mean so much more.
