Cricut You’re My Anchor Man’s Card

youre-my-anchor

This is a fun and easy Cricut card, but you could easily substitute letter stickers and Google an anchor, print and cut it out for his card. I also used some twine, a white card, a patriotic striped paper and some blue cardstock. I used a permanent glue stick and hot glue to put the card together. See the video below for complete instructions. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Antique Car Handmade Father’s Day Card

dad-card

I know lots of dads love antique cars, and to be honest, I do too! It’s hard for me to think of ideas for guy’s cards, but usually an antique car, tractor, or something of the sort will make a very nice card for a guy. I found this 1956 Mercury online, and you can go to my website to grab the image for yourself: Antique Car Handmade Father’s Day Card.

I used a pearl paper for the card, black eyelet ribbon, and to cut the nice shape around the car image, I used the Spellbinder’s Nestabilities Labels #6, the largest one. I also chalked around the edges of the car die cut with black chalk, although ink would also work well. I hope this card idea is useful to you. Thanks for stopping by!

Outdoors Father’s Day Card

Next Sunday is Father’s Day, so here’s a fun card you can make in a hurry! The secret is Hot Off the Press Outdoors Dazzles Stickers. I also used a button, a southwest corner punch and some generic brown twine that you can find in a hardware or craft store. I think the twine is a great way to embellish a man’s card without getting too floofy 🙂

I hope you take that time to make your dad, father-in-law, husband or stand-in father a great card for Father’s Day!

Outdoors/Nature Father’s Day Card

Hi everyone! This week I went for an outdoors theme for all the nature-loving dads! I used a leaf die cut, Old Paper Distress Ink Pad, a leafy branch die cut, southwest corner punch, some fibers and a button.

Let me just take a minute to wish all your dads and husbands a happy father’s day! A year ago, I would have never dreamed that it would be the last time that I made my dad a Father’s Day card. I’m glad I told him often that I loved him and I’m ever so glad that I did. He died peacefully of a heart attack on November 26th, 2010, on the 3rd anniversary of my mother’s death. What a shock for us, but what a blessing for him to go Home!

My Dad and my daughter Rosie in 2006.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. The video below shows all the details for making the card.
