Hello firneds. I have to say that Father's Day snuck up on me. I have been so busy making other samples, ordering more merchandise and working in my other business. Plus I am doing some repairs and improvements on my house and that means supervising contractors which is a full time job!
My first Father's Day card shows a shirt with contrasting collar and a pocket that says it all! All pieces were handcut except the letters and numbers on the pocket. A fun card that could be adapted to a birthday or other special occasion.Number 1 Dad – Memory Box die Classic Numbers; Impression Obsession die Typewriter Alphabet; Paper Smooches dies Pocket and Stitches

What's more appropriate for an anniversary card than love birds? I die cut the birds (new from Impression Obsession) from watercolor paper and wet the paper with water. Then I scribbled some blue and green Memento markers on an acrylic block and colored the birds with the markers.
