I cannot believe how long it has been since I posted something! Well, since Father's Day is right around the corner, I thought I would share with you the Father's Day cards that I have made. First up is one for my Father-in-Law.
My FIL is a lover of trains as is my youngest son, so I tend to make a few things with trains. This one just needed to be cut in all black (with the exception of the smoke) and I decided to try to do this as an all neutral card. I mounted the train onto some vintage bookprint and I used some stamps from the My Hero My Father stamp set from Papertrey Ink. That includes the sentiment and the wonderful corrugated stamp. Both were stamped in Versamark, and then I heat embossed the sentiment with clear embossing powder. Love how this card turned out! I just may have to do more all neutral cards!
I will admit that this card which is for my Dad is not my favorite. I just may make another card to replace this one, but I may not have the time between now and Father's Day. My Dad is a lover of two things, golf and bicycling. So I found this #1 Dad graphic with the golf ball from Lettering Delights and just knew I had to use it. I also had this Tim Holtz bicycle stamp in my stash that was crying out to be used, and I am just not sure that I merged the two well enough together.
When it came to making a card for my husband, I was at a loss. Then as I was scrolling through the Lettering Delights website I came across THIS file. While I was looking at this, I realized that I had all the elements to make a pretty good replica of this card, so I set to work. This also is just perfect, because for Father's Day the kids and I got him a Sodastream. Not sure if we are actually going to like this, but my hubby loves gadgets so it is one of those things that I knew he would like to get and play around with.
Hope all of you have a wonderful Father's Day and let's show the men in our lives how much we appreciate them!
