A day just for Dad's.

Hi everyone, I just popped on to share a couple of cards I made for Father's Day, which is this Sunday here in Australia.

For those of you who follow my blog, you may remember this Chocolate Box card from our Art with Heart's Team, June blog hop. I designed this to fit a 200g size Cadbury chocolate block, and I wanted to make it again for a Father's Day gift.

Here, I have used Basic Black cardstock, a little Very Vanilla and some Christmas DSP, which in this instance, is a great design for a masculine card. The DSP is from our Christmas/Holiday catalogue, which went live today - yay!
The name of the DSP is Christmas Around the World, and is on page 29 of the catalogue. If you don't have a copy yet and would like one, just let me know and I will pop one in the post for you.

On the inside, I added a piece of Very Vanilla for the writing panel.

The greeting on the front is from the 'Guy Greetings' stamp set in the Annual Catalogue and it was stamped onto Very Vanilla and cut out with a regular Layering Oval Framelit die and mounted on a Basic Black scalloped oval. It looked a bit plain, so I added a bow-tie made with the Bow Builder punch.

This next card I made is for my hubby.

I've used Night of Navy, Smoky Slate and Whisper White. This card design was CASE'D from Dawn Griffith, an Independent Demonstrator from America, it is called a Z Fold Gift Card Holder and she has a video tutorial on YouTube.

Again, I have used images and words from the 'Guy Greetings' stamp set and dry embossed using the Cable Knit Dynamic TIEF. 

I really like the way this cards sits up. You certainly can't buy this style of card in the shops, and there is something very special about handmade cards - don't you think?

Well that's it for today, thanks for stopping by.

Wishing all dad's a very Happy Father's Day on Sunday.

Until next time...
Happy Crafting 😊
