Two Father's Day cards for Two Special Dads!

I have two Father's Day cards to share today. First up is the one I made for my dad, using PTI's Modern Wood Mats and World's Greatest, and a background strip from WMS Off Beat Backgrounds.


The color combo is Blueberry Sky, Canyon Clay and Vintage Cream. I used the Pinking Shears border die on the strips, and the Simple Stripes impression plate on the blue panel. Love the look!


Next is the card I made for my husband. I'm so pleased with how this turned out! The camping theme was perfect, as he and our oldest son just left this morning on a week-long Boy Scout camping trip. What a perfect excuse to pull out PTI's Summer Camp set. I also used the Summer Camp patterned paper. Notice how nicely that little tent coordinates? Originally I was going to stamp it and color with Copics, but then I noticed that on the "stars" patterned paper, there was an open area (with no words or stars) that was large enough to stamp the tent! So I used that and hand-cut it.


The focal point sentiment is from World's Greatest again, and I also pulled out Simply You, for the "You are my moon, my stars, my everything" border around the edges. I thought it went well with the star-themed paper. The little moon is from a Verve set, and the fire is from Summer Camp, copic-colored and hand-cut.


Thanks for looking, and Happy Father's Day!

Both your cards are really great. I particularly like the second one, with the camping scene. I like how you stamped the Simply You border around the card front.

I love the tie on the first card (completely forgot I owned that tie or I would have used that this Father's Day!) Both are great cards!

Both of your cards are wonderful. Isn't it nice to be able to custom make a card for a particular person? I especially love your summer camp card! I just got that set, and haven't even had a chance to ink it up yet. I can see from your card that I need to get the patterned paper too! Great job on both!
