Father's Day card for DH

I created this card for my DH for Father's Day! It combines his favorite colours and a print of a photo of a light house we took on PEI.  I layered the image on dark brown/brown cardstock layer and punched the left hand side with the scallop border punch (SU) than pierced each scallop with a push pin.  For the strip I glued coordinating scraps of decorative paper to a scrap strip of cardstock and then embossed it with the Square Lattice (SU) embossing folder. I layered green cardstock strips to each side and then glued this whole element to the left hand side of a kraft card front.  I glued the image over the paper strip aligning the joint in the cardstock background of the image with the edge of the accent strip which worked nicely.  I layered my little oval greeting (Melonheadz) over a coordinating layer (Nestibilities) and adhered it to my card just below the image using 3D foam tape.


Father's Day cards!

I used several kits from last week's class to create Father's Day cards.   As you can see these kits can just as easily be made up in the landscape orientation.  I combined a flagged piece of decorative, a layered watercoloured image with a border, a piece of ribbon with a short piece tied on which simulates a bow and a little layered greeting from Melonhedz cut with oval Nestibilities.  The leaf is from Beccy's Place and the boat is from Arthur's clipart.
