Father's day cards

I made these over the weekend but forgot all about the pictures as my camera batteries needed to be recharged. These are for my girls to give daddy. Soon I hope to get them interested in making their own!

The first has a "hinged" flap on the front to give it a little more interest. The sentiment under the flap was computer generated because my handwriting is awful.

Stamp Sets - Pun Fun

Cardstock & DP - Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Summer Sun textured. Good morning Sunshine DP

Inks - Black Stazon, SU! markers

Accessories - brads.

This second father's day card was made with an adorable Riley Moose stamp. My husband really loves trains so this is sure to be a hit.

Stamp Sets - Train Riley (Hanna Stamps)

Cardstock & DP - Baja Breeze, Ruby Red, Whisper White. Sweet Slumber DSP

Inks - Black Stazon, Night of Navy (inside), SU! markers

Accessories - None (!!!!!)

Now, on to the card from today. I was at home nursing a really sore toe (unfortunate encounter between my big toe nail and the stone steps - ick), so I had more time to play than usual. I decided that, since I already have some new hostess sets on the way from the new catalog, I should at least try to make sure that I have used all the sets I already have!!

I like the idea of this card using the Goody Goody Gumdrops set, but it looked better in my head than in reality. May have to play around with the layout some more. The sundae glasses were paper pieced with the striped DP.

Stamp Sets - Goody Goody Gumdrops (hostess level 3, SS 2009)

Cardstock & DP - Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White. Sweet always DP

Inks - Black Stazon, Chocolate Chip, SU! markers

Accessories - ribbon (non-SU!), Dimensionals, Dazzling Diamonds.
