A few more Father's Day cards...

I wanted to share just a few more Father's Day cards (most of them to be sold at the thrift store) before the big day arrives.

I like this little unbranded saw die, so decided to cut it three times for this card. I also had this "cracked" looking DSP, which I think is great for masculine cards.

My sentiment was computer-generated.

The inside of my card is also very simple. I dressed it up the tiniest bit with a couple strips of black cardstock.

This guitar-patterned cardstock was a freebie I printed out (ahem) years ago. I never seemed to be able to come up with a card idea for it until now.  My letters are popped up on some black fun foam that I also die-cut. The sentiment is from a Sizzix stamp and die set and is heat-embossed.

For the inside of this card, I used a large stamp that I got at the thrift store where I volunteer. I'm not sure what brand it is, but I really like it.

I also made a tool box card. I first cut my pieces of cardstock and then stamped them with a big woodgrain stamp and some distress ink. I thought I'd make this card for a Grandpa. I printed the word out on my computer and then cut it out with a Stampin' Up word window punch. You probably noticed that I used that saw die again, along with the other tools in the set.

The "handle" of my toolbox was created by using a My Creative Time oval die.

Once again, my sentiment was computer-generated.

This last card is one I made for my husband. We're leaving on a week-long camping trip on Father's Day, so I have tucked it in the camper and I'll give it to him after we arrive at the campground.

The design of this card is REALLY simple, but I wanted the inside sentiment to be the star.

I found this sentiment on Pinterest and thought it was lovely. My DH and I really are best friends, and we have so much fun together. In fact, when someone asked him what he liked best about our 6-week long camping trip a couple of years ago, he said, "Spending 24 hours a day with Cheryl."

I'm so glad you stopped by today. I hope you are able to celebrate Father's Day with the special person in your life who is a father, a role model or even a good example to the young people in their lives. And remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

These are all great cards. The sentiment for the DH is so beautiful. He will love that. That tool box is so clever. And the guitar paper is perfect for any "you rock" card.

Oh love that I can once again "surf some favorite blogs, you have been busy busy, my favorite is the tool box with the little tools for Grandpa. They are all very nice and I am sure they went quickly at the shelter. Good to be back - I am able to stamp (a little) cut, and use my tape runner so it is coming back.
