Card Share: A Medley of Father's Day Cards

I've made a number of Father's Day cards recently and rather than share them in separate blog posts, I thought I'd feature them all together. As you can see, I was somewhat partial to orange, although I didn't plan it that way. I just worked with product I had on hand.

The first card (which I shared last Monday), Mr. Fix-It, was created with Echo Park/ Silhouette cut files. I printed the words "Happy Father's Day" repeatedly on the B side of the "Smell the Roses" paper from Chickaniddy's 365 collection, embellishing very simply with wood veneer sequins, an ampersand and orange puffy heart. 

The second card, On the Playlist, was inspired by the vintage radio paper from a Paper Issues Swag Bag and the fun wood veneer circle from Color Cast Designs. This time I printed repeated text on a transparency and layered it over wide-striped orange paper from the Simple Stories I Am collection.

You are the Best Dad also features a warm, masculine color scheme and wood veneer embellishments for dimension. I used a June calendar (from an older Simple Stories collection) from my stash. I love finding something that works with the project I'm working on, don't you?

Last, but not least, It Takes Someone Special to be a Dad, was created with odds and ends from my stash. In fact, the sentiment chipboard piece is from an old Bella Blvd. collection — Man of the House, I believe.

I hope you enjoyed seeing this assortment of Father's Day cards and it provided you with the inspiration to make some of your own.
