Hello Blog pals…..here I am again!! I have a group of girls I work with that purchase my cards on an ongoing basis. I have this little box at work where Ijust put a bunch of cards in with an envelope for them to pay me on the honor system for any cards they take. I decided I’d better start getting some Father’s Day cards in that box soon, so here’s a card I made up when I got some inspiration from one of my card making magazines.
I really like the masculine feel of this card. Another layout I saw in one of my cardmaking magazines…..lol. I love the layers on this card and I even pulled my sewing machine out for this card. I made a little brown paper bag (out of a big brown paper bag….original, huh….lol) to hold a tag that has a cute little sentiment on it. The piece of ruled paper I tore out of a journal book I have. It didn’t have the red margin lines on it so I added those. I also didn’t like the stark look of the white paper so I used my Tim Holtz blending tool and Distress Ink in Antique Linen to soften it a bit.
Here’s a peek at the tag I put into my paper bag. It says “You are some kind of wonderful”. Kind of fitting for Father’s Day I thought!! lol The measuring tape is from my Stampin’ Up! Totally Tools set and that stamp actually has the words ‘love beyond measure’ under the tape measure. For this card I only wanted the tape measure so just didn’t ink up that part of the stamp. The Happy Father’s Day is from one of my Close To My Heart sentiment sets called ‘A Little of Everything’. It’s a very versatile and I use it quite often.
Check it out in full size. I kinda like this one. Check out my ‘screw’ brads…..cute…..oopps…..I mean, manly, aren’t they!
Thanks so much for coming on by. I hope I stirred your imagination just a little to go and get creating in your craft space!!
