Father’s Day Card

Leave a comment

I can’t believe that it is already June. This year has gone by so fast.  School is letting out and my oldest nephew is going to be graduating this year.  And Father’s day is upon up once again.

I am not sure of how all fathers feel about that day. With my dad, he doesn’t really care about that day.  He just want to have a nice dinner and he is one happy camper.  That is why for me personally, Father’s Day is one of the hardest cards for me to make, especially for my dad.

This is one of the reasons of why this Father’s day card is simple. You can change the sentiment to “Happy Birthday” or “Thank you” to this card.

The other reason is that I got a new stencil and die that I wanted to try out.

  • 3 ½ x 5 inch medium brown cardstock
  • Embossing Folder – Dots
  • Cuttlebug
  • 3 ½ inch circle die

I originally brought this paper for that book challenge but changed my mind. It is also cheap drawing paper which made the tearing easy. However it also meant that I couldn’t load it with layers with paint or else the paper will fall apart. I had to go in and out, no fine details. Which was ok, afterall this was a simple card.

Notice the word simple being underlined. Well that was because during the time I was using my embossing folder, the handle of my cuttlebug fell off. Good grief. It was an easy fix, but honestly, I was on a row and it kind of interrupted the flow.

The songs I used “A Revelation”, “Birds in Flight”, “Grass”, and “Wistful Harp.” are from You Tube Library.

With the summer being here, it means warmer weather. Nice to go outside to enjoy the sunshine. Except I am getting ideas for Halloween and Christmas videos. Like 5 days of Halloween and 5 days of Christmas. Can we say oh boy.

Once again, I apologized for the camera moving, my head kept bumping into it. I am going to see if I can fix this weekend.
