Father's Day 2012

I made these two cards and shared them with my class, a few weeks ago. I stayed with the brown/caramel theme as it was easier to work with in the class. This is a photo of the two cards.

The first card has a pocket inside that one can pop a voucher or a special letter into, but still have a place to stamp a sentiment on the outside of the pocket. I left it blank so each lady could personalise her own card.
The front of the card is an embossed panel using Distress Markers and the Sizzex folder, Animal Print, and cut with the 2 Die 4 dies, Bulging Rectangle. The little rectangle was embossed first, then swiped with the Versamark Watermark pad and sprinkled with Gold Embossing powder before heating. Very effective.
The sentiment stamp is from a Hero Arts set.

The second card is a fabulous folded card. The front panel was embossed with Distress Markers and the Houndstooth folder. The bottom panel was embossed with a Diamond folder. The front mount was stamped with the Hero Arts Stripes pad that was coloured with Distress Markers before stamping. The car was stamped onto acetate using Staz-on ink. It is from a Darkroom Door set I have. The stripes and acetate images were mounted onto dark brown board and attached with big brass eyelets. The sentiment was from Hero Arts. Lots of room to write a message on the inside of the folder, that was punched with a Martha Stewart Checkerboard edge punch.

I do hope this has inspired you to get busy with Father's Day Cards. For a change, my Dad's card is well on it's way to him and perhaps he will receive it in time, but only if he remembers to clear his post box!!

Thanks for the visit.
