If you think I'm late with posting these then wait for this embarrassing tidbit, I haven't even sent my Dad his 2 cards yet (Dad if you read this, I'm sending them this week.... I ran out of stamps and well dragging both kids to the post office just hasn't happened yet, sorry!)
Here are the cards I made for my Dad. The first is from me, my parents divorced when I was 6 and my Dad moved to another state, so we didn't get to spend all that much time together as I was growing up, but the time we did spend he worked hard to make memorable.
I applied Rock Candy by Ranger to make my paper tiles look glazed, and added my sentiment (printed with Studio of course) with some Chocolate Truffle (yum) twine.
I made DH two cards as well. I give BirdsCards complete credit for giving me my ideas, the tie card is pretty much a direct copy of hers and my grilling card I used the card base she generously shared (I had never seen this style of pop-up card before and I just love it) if you're not familiar with her blog head over now, she has a TON of amazing free files for you too! I subscribe to her email feed so I never miss a post!
This one was a quick print and cut. The ties are cut out individually and then pop-dotted up.
I used shapes from Silhouette to create my background paper (just love how you can do that) which I simply printed out, the grill is cut from metallic cardstock, and the little steak is actually layered.
When you pull the tab at the top, the middle panel pops up and the space under is where you write! How fun is that?
Lastly I thank the amazing Brigit from Brigit Stamp's, her Father's Day card created from svgcuts files was just perfect for my FIL who loves to play scrabble. Those little boxes were a bit of a pain to make but the end result is worth a few glue coated fingers!
Thanks again for visiting and be sure to check back tomorrow to see my next post for Trendy Twine!
