Father's Day

This card (and the next one that is similar) are actually last year's cards that never got posted.  You can tell that I was dealing with a lack of time as both cards are similar.  Here's the 2nd one:
As you can see, both use a similar focal - made using stamps and dies from JustRite ("Celebrate Today Vintage Labels Four" stamp set & "Vintage Labels Four" die set).

First card:
  • Focal: stamped onto patterned paper using dark blue ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.  
  • Papers: older Hot Off the Press
  • Ribbons: White 1/4" satin topped with a narrow navy
Second card:
  • Focal: stamped onto plain white card stock using dark blue ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. 
  • Paper: ??? don't remember for sure where I got this 
  • Ribbons: Navy 1/4" grosgrain ribbon
As you can see, both cards were made in a similar manner:
  • Cut the background paper a bit smaller than the card and ink the edges.
  • Add ribbon, tucking ends under background paper
  • Adhere background paper to card & then add focal.

Both are fabulous card creations, Cheryl!!! I don't have anyone to make a father's day card for, but it's nice for me to get ideas for masculine birthday cards. Keep sharing!
