Two More Father's Day Cards

Father's Day is this Sunday, and I had a couple more cards I needed to get done. It seems masculine cards are always the hardest for me to do. Here is what I came up with:

This card was made with left over papers from other projects. I started with a standard kraft side-fold card. The background was a left over from some map paper I had from a travel project. I had a scrap of red card stock, and I stamped my compass image. I cut it out close using my Cutter Bee Scissors. They are the best for intricate work. I threaded my button and attached it using Glue Dots. The blue patterned paper was cut at 2.5" and I distressed the edges for a more aged look. I inked my edges as well for the well worn look.

I added my scrap piece of ribbon using my 1/4" Scor Tape. I used my 1/2" ScorTape put the cardstock pieces together, and then to attach the finished piece to my card front. Lastly I added my compass using a Glue Pop Dot.

For this card I got a bit fancier. I used all Basic Grey papers for my patterned papers, and they are available in the Cutter's Creek Store. These are from Green at Heart, Kioshi, and Indian Summer. I started with a kraft paper gate-fold card. I used my ScorPal to get the perfect folds. I cut my cardstock and distressed all of the edges on the patterned papers. I attached them using my Scor Tape.

I cut a 3.75" x 4" Kraft paper square, and I distressed those edges as well. I used a scrap piece of blue cardstock at 3" x 3.5" for the ocean/sky background, and drew curly circles on the bottom 3/4" of the blue piece using my Inkssentials White Gel pen. I cut out my stamped sailboat using my Cutter Bee Scissors. Lastly I adhered the piece together and then to the card using my Scor Tape.

I stamped my images and sentiment using the Tsukineko Cocoa Brown Ink on both cards.

All of the basic supplies I used to make these cards and the Basic Grey papers are available in the Cutters Creek Store.

Be sure to check out the full line of Basic Grey papers and kits. They have such amazing papers! I love the texture and weight of their line. There are even some Christmas papers available .

Remember Kim will always do special orders. If you are looking for special items, be sure to ask her about them. I am super excited about the new PINK ATG gun! Pink just rocks!
