Happpy Fathers Day!



Is this not just the cutest! This is my new favorite card!!! I was watching Carol Duval the other day & she had a woman on that was showing how to wrap gift boxes....of course my mind immediately went to "I could so make a card like that"!!!!! so I ran...seriously ran to my craft room for some computer paper to follow along and make some kind of a template....It worked!!!! I am so pleased with the result I even made a matching gift card tin.
The paper & tie are from Michael's...I went specifically to find materials that looked like a shirt & tie. The card is small only 4x5 1/2. Once I figured it out...this card can be finished toot sweet!!

I had originally meant this for my dads BD but think I will save it for Fathers Day. If anyone is interested...as FD grows closer I could easily do a tutorial. Let me know!


Hope you all had a Happy Easter! I had a crazy busy week last week....can't believe my last post was nearly a week ago. I did get around to visit some bloggs last night & as always saw some really awesome stuff!

Hope you all have a fabulous day!
Blogg at you soon!!

Okay, Gwen, totally adorable, but I do think we're going to need a tut on this! So, the striped "shirt" is made of paper, right? Just waaaaaaay cute; you're just too clever, GF!!! So great to have a darling guy idea too, since they're so hard to find!

Oops –last comment had a typos, so I have done it again, pleas delete the previous one.I am amazed at how good your card looks, I saw it on TipJunkie when browsing for 'Fathers Day' as--- I am starting a new website idea --www.sendmycard.co.uk --for people who are possibly so busy in an office they simply want to click a button to send a card, --maybe it won't work--who knows --but --if it does --I wish I could have some cards on it like yours! I have copied and pasted your web address so I can return if my website starts to sell cards and needs new (better) ones.
Fathers day cards
