It seems like we just celebrated Mother’s Day, and now it is almost Father’s Day! Time goes so quickly! Have you made all your Father’s Day cards? No? Take a look at the cards I’ve created for you. I also have a tutorial for you to complete them with minimal supplies quickly.
I used the For the Guys kit from Stampin’ Up! as my starting point. First, everything you need is included in the kit! Second, all the Stampin’ Up! kits are on a BOGO 50% off during the month of June. Here are the two card examples they suggest making from your kit. Nice cards, but as always, I want more ideas!
So first off, simple. I turned the cardbase for a Landscape layout, added the mountains, lake, and trees scene with dimensionals, and stamped my greeting directly onto the cardbase. A completely different look, and in less than 5 minutes with no extra supplies!
For the next two cards, I put together another of the mountains, lake, and tree scene. But before I adhered it to a card, I cut the scene in half (yes, you can do that! LOL) to create 2 simple cards! This first one uses only the card base, the half scenic piece, and a greeting. How much quicker and easier can you get? Your guy will love it!
For the other half of the scene, I cut up one of the matching envelopes and adhered it to my card front. I added Linen thread and a greeting tag stamped on a piece from the envelope, and I had another Father’s Day card!
Are you getting inspired to make your own Father’s Day cards? Great! Here are three more cards to share with you for more ideas. This next card uses the original suggested layout but adds a Mossy Meadow frame behind it with some added Linen Thread. Simple addition that really makes the background and tag stand out.
Along the same lines, I created another Mossy Meadow frame, this time on the left-hand side of the card. The Tweed pattern is from one of the envelopes cut apart and trimmed to fit over the Mossy Meadow. I added a Mossy Meadow banner underneath the Shield greeting and popped the entire tag up with dimensionals.
This last card can also be a gift card holder. This card was made with pieces of the envelopes from in the kit added to the cardbase. The only additional supplies you need for any of these cards is a sheet of Mossy Meadow cardstock.
