Father's Day Cards

Today i have 2 cards to share with you today. Fathers day is next week so i started my Dad's father day card early this week, knowing i would need to get it done soon to mail it on Monday. After i finished it this weekend i also did a quick card for my Grandpa.

First is a card for my dad, who has a motorcycle and goes to a lot of motorcycle meets and such. Several years ago i got a motorcycle stamp to use when i make fathers day and birthday cards for my dad. Its a challenge is to come up with different cards using this one stamp each year!

This time i used some paper with a wood pattern. I stamped the motorcycle in black ink, then added black glitter to select areas of the motorcycle. The bike was just floating out in space so i used a grey marker to add a ground for the bike. I pierced wholes along the edge and tied a black ribbon in a knot at the top.

For the bottom of the card, i used the reverse side of the pattern paper which is a crossword puzzle. I search threw out the page to find squares to fit Happy Father's Day in a readable order and would fit the card. After finding the best fit i trimmed it to fit the bottom of my card. Then i used a black sparkle marker to wright Happy Father's Day in the crossword puzzle.

For my Grandpa's card i used some cute pattern paper with cute little trucks and cars. I new this would go great with PTI's Truckin It set. And my Grandpa is a truck man! I die cut the truck from navy paper and added a white opaque pen to the windows and headlight. For the tail light i used a red sparkle marker. For the sentiment i stamped Happy Fathers Day from PTI's Father Knows Best on some white cardstock.

For the pattern paper i drew a wave in pencil then cut it out and trimmed it to fit on the front. I adhered it with pop up dots after using the white pen to add faux stitching and adhering the sentiment. With a square spellbinder's die i cut a piece of the green card stock and adhered the truck with pop up dots.

Even though it's on the cutsie side for a Grandpa, i didn;t think it was over the top cute!! And its a relatively flat so it will mail nicely!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
