Here are my cards (below). They were quick and easy and I used scraps from various Close to My Heart papers that are now retired.
|I was inspired by a card made by Aaron Brown at Aaron's Booth #32. I loved her use of the current CTMH Jubilee papers, but I chose to use scraps from my past projects. No waste, right? I save almost all of my scraps, right down to 1" by 2"!!!|
|I found the little "June 2014" calendar from organizedhome.com and printed it out on cream cardstock and distressed the edges with brown ink.|
|The "Happy Father's Day" is computer generated. I printed it onto our CTMH Colonial White cardstock, cut it out and then distressed the edges with brown ink. I popped it up with 3D foam dots.|
I had a few Kraft cards hanging around, so used those for the first 2 cards. I made the black card using a leftover piece of black cardstock. I tried to keep these cards more masculine, but a little "girlyness" crept in! I just can't help it!
The black card looked a little empty in the upper left corner, so I used a little plastic stencil I have and a peach colored gel pen, to stencil the little row of squiggles along the top and left side. I like how it turned out!
|My dad, my sister and I. I'm the cutie in the front!|
Are your cards for Father's Day done yet??? What special memories do you have of your father?
