Happy Monday, everybody! I was able to make more time the other day for another Father’s Day card, so I thought I’d share it with you! Check it out:
I recently went through all my paper (well, all the paper I brought with me) and organized it- paper-clipped together coordinating pieces for future cards, color coded all my solid card stock, and bit the bullet and got rid of some scraps that I would realistically never use. You see, I have the hardest time throwing away even the smallest bit of paper, thinking, “oh, but I could make a flower out of this! This would be perfect for…someday…” and then I rarely use said smallest bit of paper. Well, I kept some of my larger-but-still-possibly-too-small-to-realistically-use-on-a-card pieces, and then rejoiced because they were perfect for this Father’s Day card! I cut one strip of each different blue to the same size, layered them onto a piece of white paper, then ran that through my Cuttlebug using my diagonal stripes embossing folder. Then, I stuck a brad in each corner and layered that whole piece onto light blue card stock and attached the whole thing to my card base. I die cut the shapes and added “DAD” using old rub-on letters that I’ve had in my stash for ages, then popped it up using foam squares. The inside was left blank for plenty of note-writing space.
I’m pretty proud of this simple card! I used up some of my scraps, kept it simple and classy, and even got a little ombre-action going 😛 It’s very popular these days.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed your visit 🙂
