Father's Day Cards

Father's Day will be here before we know it. I always like to keep a few extra cards in my stash for friends who need some cards. The Favorite Occasions Borders and Centers set from JustRite Stampers has a fun Father's Day trophy image and coordinating border sentiment.I love that this set has images that can be colored. I used my Copic Sketch markers to add colors that coordinate with my patterned paper that I had in my stash. Adding a little bit of grey shadowing around the image adds a little dimension to my focal piece. I cut out my circles with my Spellbinder's Nestabilities Circles and then adhered them to Spellbinder's Pinking Circles. This fun shape reminds me of little emblems or the round portion of ribbons...like the ones on the JustRite images.
I'm thinking these would make some great tags too. Some ideas would be to tie them onto a package of homemade cookies(raisin cookies for Dad), Dad's favorite candies(my dad likes Spanish peanuts and orange slices) or maybe onto some new sporting equipment(my dad prefers tractors). Or perhaps you could tie a tag onto a brand new, shiney, snake-removal hoe....perfect!!

What are YOU getting your favorite dads for Father's Day?

Great cards for Father's Day. Since my dad and FIL are no longer with us, I am going to have to make cards for my sons and sons-in-law. Thank you for the great ideas.
