Father's Day Cards

Happy Tuesday Crafters and bloggers! I have MISSED YOU ALL! It's been a minute since I have posted I know! But I have been busy crafting...just for other venues that I couldn't share here...but I'm back and will try update my blog more often!!:o)

It's that time again bloggers and crafters! Father's Day is almost upon us! Have you made or purchased your cards yet? Well this time I made my cards! This first card is one I made for a customer to give to his father who enjoys fishing. This is my very first time making a masculine card, and while the card looks simple enough, it took me a while to come up with a concept I was OK with...

The Recipe:
  • Card Front patterned paper: Max and Whiskers Collection by Basic Grey
  • Fisherman and water: Cricut Sampler Cartridge
  • "Happy Father's Day" Sentiment: Cricut Holiday Cakes Cartridge
  • "Papi": Sesame Street Font Cartridge
  • Card Inside: Fishing pole cutout: Just Because Cricut Cartridge
  • Sentiments, water and inside card base were cut using Bazzill cardstock
Now on to the GOOD stuff! A challenge AND some goodies! For those that choose to accept, you have until Saturday, June 18th at 12 midnight EST to create a Father's Day card and post to your blog and link to my blog by adding your link in the Mr. Linky below for a chance at some FAB blog candy!! Be sure to follow my blog and leave a comment as well as I will draw a name from the total number of comments using on Sunday, June 19th. I will post a pic later on what the candy will be...but I promise it will be great!! The only catch is that your card must be new and not one that you have previously created! Have fun! I would love to get inspired by seeing some more masculine cards!!
