Happy Father's Day!

I have 3 dads in my life: my dad, my stepdad, and my father-in-law. I sat down to make their cards yesterday.... now I'm realizing they will probably be late (I have to mail to SoDak and Kansas). Hope they don't mind!

For Dad
Stamp Set: Cheers to You
Cardstock: Kraft, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White
DSP: Good Morning Sunshine
Stamp Pads (Classic): Summer Sun, Stazon

Accessories/Tools: Blender Pen, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Horizontal Slot, Kiwi Kiss striped ribbon, Chatter rub-ons
My dad likes beer. A lot. So this is so fitting. I wrote Happy Father's Day inside the card with a little note. I'm SO dissappointed the Rub-On doesn't show up too well (not even in person!) Guess I should have done it inside on the Kraft or on a different color and mounted it on there.

For StepDad
Stamp Set: Cheers to You
Cardstock: Sahara Sand, Summer Sun, Whisper White
DSP: Walk in the Park
Stamp Pads (Classic): Summer Sun, Stazon

Accessories/Tools: Blender Pen, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Kiwi Kiss striped ribbon
Notice a theme? My stepdad also likes beer! I put 2 on his card to joke about our recent trip to Chicago.... BOGO beers at happy hour!

For Father-in-Law
Stamp Set: All Holidays
Cardstock: Kiwi Kiss, Basic Gray, Whisper White
DSP: Urban Garden
Stamp Pads (Classic): Basic Gray

Accessories/Tools: Paper Piercer, Kiwi Kiss ribbon
Yes, this design is a total ripoff of my monogram cards I made, but I like how it looks with this bold sentiment. I couldn't figure out what else to do with it! And this paper is so masculine and dad-ish.

Now I best be off to the post office to get these in the mail! More tomorrow (or the next day!)


  1. These are all great cards!!! I've got to make another one and I love the design and colours on the bottom one... might be lifting!

  2. I think these cards are great! There's no ripping off if it is a great really is just a great design!

  3. Super fun Father's Day cards!! I love the beer ones... I have a few friends that would like them too!! LOL! So refreshing on a HOT day... :)

    Your 3rd card has nice DP and love the soon to retire ribbon...pooo! :)

  4. These are GREAT Father's Day cards! I seriously need that beer set. :)

    I also just ADORED the picture in the top note. What a great idea and it looks just wonderful!


Imagine a beep. Then leave me a message! I love hearing from you, thanks!
