It's that time again, Father's Day tomorrow (in this country at least!) and Robert's birthday on Monday, so it's man-card time again!
First up, for Dad and John (my father-in-law), I crossed my fingers and toes that ColourQ would have a challenge without any pink in it. Did they deliver?
Oh yes, they sure did! The trees on this bedspread reminded me of a certain under-used Stampin' Up set I own, so I whipped up two of these:
I am loving that border stamp. I never would have bought it myself, but it is finding it's way onto my cards and pages more and more. I love how it "grounds" the other images on this card.
I may have taken some liberty with the white on this card, but after all, eggshell is the new white!
Onto Robert's fathers day card now, and I whipped this one up quickly using some bits of pieces from my Counterfeit Kit:
The addition of a bit of stamping onto the flash card made a quick but fun card - and if you think I don't put a lot of effort into a card for my dearly beloved, pop over here to see my attitude on cards for men of a certain personality type!
Last but not least, the challenge at CASE Study this week is to "case yourself". I yet again took a bit of liberty and cased a scrapbook page . . . that I haven't quite finished! (You'll see the end result soon, minus all those threads) . . .
I took the placement of the fussy-cut chevron paper and the overlapping papers as my starting point, and just used scraps that were still on my desk from the same page.
I tend to make cards A6 size by default, so they fit in a standard-size envelope. So it was a bit of an ah-ha moment for me when I realised . . . cards that aren't going through the mail can be any size you like! Another way to use up the cardstock off-cuts I added to my Counterfeit Kit.
P.S. Are you enjoying the Paralympics as much as we are here? We are particularly enjoying the wheelchair basketball. Go Rollers! Go Gliders!
