I often browse through Design Space while watching TV and I ran across these great Father’s Day cards. Word art is all the rage right now, so I thought I would give these trendy cuts a try! What do you think?
I used Close To My Heart cardstock because it always cuts so well on my Cricut and a CTMH Father’s Day stamp for the sentiment.
I love how they turned out–so easy and colorful! If you haven’t made your Father’s Day cards yet, you might want to give one of these a try!
Thanks for stopping by today! Always be your own kind of WONDERFUL!! Laurie

It’s almost Father’s Day and we are celebrating special Dads at Bitten by the Bug 2 this week! I have made and shared quite a few Father’s Day cards in recent weeks, but there is always room for one more, right? This fancy fold card is made from a Design Space file shared by my fabulous up line, Joy Tracey of Obsessed With Scrapbooking.
The patterned paper I used for this card is from Authentique and the cardstock is from Close To My Heart (Peacock and Colonial White). The stamped sentiments (A Day for Dad and Beyond Awesome) are also from Close To My Heart.
I added a couple of embellishments from the Urban Complements and Triangle Durables, both from Close To My Heart. The card really doesn’t need much in the way of embellishments as the interesting fold is the real star here!
Stop by Bitten by the Bug 2 for more Father’s Day inspiration! Then link up your own projects for everyone to enjoy!

I just can’t seem to get enough of the grungy, industrial feel of the Urban paper collection from Close To My Heart! And thankfully, Father’s Day gave me the chance to use it again and again. I even swapped out the Father’s Day sentiment for Happy Birthday to double the fun!!
This first card was inspired by some posts I’ve seen online where people are using zip strips from the tops of CTMH paper in creative ways. I dove-tailed the ends of the zip strips and added some pattern paper strips to make a cluster of banners. I had some gear shapes left over from a previous project that I had cut from the Artiste cartridge by Close To My Heart and used them as a border at the top of my card. The sentiment is a stamp from the new Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog.
The second card is also created with a zip strip along the left side, more of the left over gears from Artiste and a few Urban Complements. The sentiment is from the Stamps of Approval stamp set by Close To My Heart. I love that it has coordinating cuts on the Artistry cartridge, so no fussy cutting required!!
Thanks for stopping by today! If you would like to purchase any of the supplies I used to create these cards, please visit my online shopping site HERE.
