Sketch 21 - Father's Day Cards


Ahh, time for another sketch challenge. You know what I love about these best? It's a great opportunity to use up some scraps that you have lying around. Sometimes, you end up liking the sketch so much that you can make lots of the same card - perfect for making cards for OWH! If you want to check out more of these sketches, be sure to check out Operation Write Home's creative blog for card makers - Stars & Stamps.

Today. . I am proud to be able to participate in multiple S&S challenges - one for the sketch, one for "masculine cards" and even one for using bling! Here is the sketch and the cards - and a few ideas for some Father's Day cards too. It's coming up fast! Yikes! Father's Day cards are challenging for me - in general, Dads aren't into a whole lot of embelishments or sparkly things. So I tried to keep them simple - that is hard!



For the above cards - I used paper from a My Mind's Eye stack and some stamps by Studio G. I made many of those cards with the tie on them - some of the ties are striped PP and some are these polka dots - if you want a good tutorial on how to fold these paper neckties stop by here.


Here's a blingy "DAD" card - I used silver metallic paper in my cuttlebug with the star embossing template to make that shiny background. "DAD" was cut on my cricut using the "Beyond Birthdays" cartridge.


I thought this would be a fun one for a Grandpa - the image is by Dustin Pike and I stamped the inside with letter stamps to say, "best fishes!" 

That's all for now - there is a storm rolling in and it is cool and dark right now. Perfect "napping" weather for those of us who have to report for the midnight shift. I have a fantastic gathering coming up this weekend for a friend's church group - the girls and I at Cathy's church are going to make cards for the troops - my goal is to complete the box of 500 blanks that were donated to me by Artco. (How cool is that?) I can't wait to see how it turns out!
