Fathers Day is right around the corner, so I decided this week to make some Fathers Day Cards.
I by no means am a card maker, but I do at least try and attempt them.
My first card is very simple, but masculine! I used black cardstock and pattern paper from my stash for the base. I then layered black cardstock with cream cardstock. I used the Compass Shape Set along with a piece from the Miniatures Guy Thing set. I inked the edge of the telescope with Walnut stain distress ink. I left the chipboard pieces their natural color. They just didn't need anything to make them stand out at all. I then added some metal letters to spell out the word "Dad" along the edge of the cardstock.
My second card I used the Gears Borders & Corners set and a gear from Miniatures Guy Thing set.
I inked the gear corner piece with walnut stain distress ink and vintage photo ink. I then added clear embossing powder and it gave it a rusted look. I then used walnut stain ink to the smaller gear at the top as well as the chipboard letters. I used glossy accents on the letters. I then added some metal gears to give more dimension.
Below is a close up of the gear corner piece.
I hope you like the cards I have created.
