Time to Honor Dad!

Hello, Crafty Friends!

Father’s Day is coming soon and time to find a special card for a special Dad in your life!  I made a couple of a fancy fold cards this weekend that I think turned our really well.  This type of card looks very complicated, but is actually quite easy–and I think quite impressive after decorating.  The first card was made with Authentique paper, which is my favorite paper company (after Close To My Heart, of course)!  I embellished the card with burlap pennants from Little Yellow Bicycle, typewriter stickers from my stash, a Cricut cut from the Father’s Day cartridge, and a couple of Close To My Heart stamps in Outdoor Denim ink.

On the second card I used some paper from Kaiser Craft, cork pennants from Little Yellow Bicycle, and stamps from Close To My Heart in Cocoa ink.  I also found some metal gears in my stash that I think added just the right masculine touch to finish off the card!  I got the idea to make Father’s Day cards in this style from a fellow CTMH consultant, Ellen Jarvis who posted a lovely card on her blog last week.  I love how these cards stand up by themselves for display and yet fold flat enough to mail in an envelope.
