Father’s Day Cards

I know it is after the fact, but that seems to be how I do things… I made these Father’s Day cards the day of for my Husband, Dad, and Father in Law. Why you ask… Well I am a procratinator and I thought I would have Friday to at least make my husbands, and well Thursday night the man came home from basketball needing a trip the the ER.  19 stiches to hold his upper lip on later we came home, he was unable to work the next day and he spent the weekend on the couch watching golf.  I had to wake up early in the AM to make his card! Couldn’t get away from him. Poor man, he looks terrible.

DSC01430This first card I made for my Father in Law. He is very patriotic. I used an old SU set called Land That I Love. I watercolored the image on watercolor paper. It is then layered with Real Red and Naturals Ivory CS, the Happy Father’s Day is from All Holidays stamped in Night of Navy on Naturals Ivory CS also layered with Real Red and Naturals Ivory. The base of the card is NI. and the layers are Night of Navy and Real Red. I also added some white buttons.

DSC01431This next card was for my husband the lover of all sports. Not sure what the little spots are by the buttons because they dont’ show up on the card itself…glue maybe??

Card base is Old Olive, Layers are Close to Cocoa, Night of Navy and Very Vanilla. Image is from another old SU set, I don’t know the name because I only have this stamp. Sorry. Wish they would bring it back though, I could use the whole set! I colored the golf image with Stampin’ Up markers in Close to Cocoa, and Going Gray. Sentiment is from All Holidays ( Only Father’s Day stamp I own) stamped in Night of Navy .I used Old Olive Ribbon, and brown buttons.

DSC01428This last card was for my Dad. The base is Naturals Ivory CS. Layers are Choclate Chip, Always Artichoke, Close to Cocoa and Old Olive. The image is from the set Backwoods. I wanted it a little bigger so I actually stamped it and then enlarged it a little onto water color paper.  I then watercolored it with Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Going Gray, Always Artichoke, Old Olive and Basic Black ink. The sentiment is stamped in Always Artichoke, I used a little piece of Hemp for the knot.

Well I am off the great outdoors for a Family Reunion, I will have more when I get back.
