Father's Day cards

I missed a day, I was supposed to post pics of the father's day cards for my brothers in law and I got busy and forgot - forgive me. So here they are.

You know it's just hard for me to create a masculine card so I kept these very simply. The one on the left is done in soft stone & smokey shadow and the one on the right is done in vintage cream & chocolate brown. It's funny to see how the two photograph differently. The brown one seems to pop more than the gray one.

For both I used the Cuttlebugs houndstooth embossing folder for the bottom and for the top I embossed a nesties straight circle and stamped an image from Simply Stationary. I used my computer to create the Happy Father's Day and used a circle punch to cut them out and foam pop ups. Then to finish them off I used some coordinating ribbon with some ribbon slides I had in my stash.

Thank You for stopping by!


  1. These are both so elegant and sophisticated and still masculine. I love them both!

  2. These are cool, very elegant.

  3. I, too, have the hardest time with masculine cards. I'm working on my dad's father's day card right now & have no idea yet for my husband. These are great for guys. Nice job!
