Father’s Day 2016 …
… it came and went so quickly! I didn’t have a chance to show you the cards I made!
The first card was for my son-in-law, who is a first-time dad this year, and the other was for my husband, who has been a dad for a whole lot longer. 😉 Father’s Day weekend was also alumni weekend at Hiram College in Ohio, so hubby and I trekked over there and took care of our little grandson for the night while his parents reunited with their college friends to celebrate their ten-year reunion.
Here’s the card I made for my son-in-law:
I love easy … like Oprah loves bread.
I am so glad I had the My Paper Pumpkin kit on hand. It gave me a chance to create a very unique card.
- First, the card base. This is one of the two bases that came with the kit. (this is from the May 2016 kit, which is still available)
- Next, I cut a piece of Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper to attach behind the card front. You could substitute ANY patterned paper behind the card front, by the way.
- Then I stamped the greeting from the Guy Greetings stamp set (in the new In Color, Dapper Denim).
- And finally, for a bit of jazz, I used a few of the stars from the In Colors 2016-18 Enamel Dots.
This card was pretty simple, it required very few products, but it packs a big punch.
