We have just had Father's Day here in Australia and of course that meant card making time. Today I have two Father's Day cards to show you, the first is the one I made for my dad, and the other is the one my daughter made for her dad. I love that she is creative too.
Firstly here is the card I made my dad. I used the now-retired Well Worn DSP and Junior Type Alphabet die and matched them up with the new Apothecary Accents Framelits and a new a la carte stamp aptly named World's Greatest. We received this stamp at Convention and to be honest I wasn't sure it was my style, however it was perfect for this card. Even though the Framelit chopped off the bottom part of the stamp I think it still works well.
This is the card my daughter made for her dad, she took inspiration from the butterfly card I made but changed it to be more masculine. I love what she has done with this, she kicked me out of my craft area and then went to work. I love how she did the background, she had started off sponging the edges but decided to tap the ink pad directly to the card stock which gives it a great texture. She added some ribbon, and even though it is satin ribbon she has chosen the grey and added a layer of Baker's Twine. I love the way she off set the sentiment and embossed the layer. I am such a proud mum and of course my husband loved the card!
