A Collection of Father's Day Cards.....

 Morning all, hope you're all having a lovely a bit hit & miss, but you can't have everything now can you???

Whilst the weather wasn't that great on Saturday, I decided to make a few father day cards, ready for my craft fair at the end of the month.  Being men's cards, they didn't need to be too decorative and fussy. I've made 5 so far (so loads of photos in this post ....sorry !!)
I've made them 6 x 6, and tried to do a selection of they are so far.......


I've used a topper from Hunkydory and tools die from Robert Addams.

Used a tonic die on blue cardstock for the rope detail frame, a topper from a magazine (making cards i think). Some nautical roped paper. Added a Robert Addams die anchor, the sentiment, and then got some thick bakers twine and did a knot (i think it's a reef knot !!).


Forever friends topper, Crealies postage stamp layering die, fishing bits from Robert Addams dies, Plus sentiment.


Forever Friends stickers onto a Crealies die as above, football backing paper and sentiment.

 James Bond

Tonic trellis die in gold mirri card, stuck onto black paper. James Bond topper, martini glass & gun were all from Making Cards magazine. 

Hopefully, i will be able to do a few more before the fair, although i don't want to do too many as I will be stuck with them.....unless i can prize off the sentiment and put a happy birthday one in it's place LOL !!!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend. x
