I have been waiting to post these cards on my blog for three weeks.
Now it's Father's Day I can put them up as the originals have all been received!
The first card I made for my brother, his girlfriend and my gorgeous nephew to give to my lovely dad.
He's got a big fish pond in the garden and loves his fish, so having seen the Build a Blossom stamp set used to make various fishy cards on the Internet, I thought I'd have a go too.
I used the Just Believe stamp set to get the foliage, and the sentiment is from Something to Celebrate (Level 2 Hostess) - much used by me!!!!
The second card is for my brother (his first Fathers Day!) from my lovely 5 month old nephew Ethan.
I wanted to go with something simple and quite child like, so CASE'd a design I'd seen on the Internet some times ago - really sorry, but can't remember who's design it was........
I used various punches to put together a little sailing boat, added in some little hearts cut from DSP and the sentiment is again from Something to Celebrate.
I really hope everyone likes the Fathers Day cards I made. I certainly enjoyed making them all. It was quite a challenge making so many and trying to make them all different, especially as boys cards are something I find pretty tough.
