Happy Father's Day-Enjoy Your Special Day

Good Morning and Happy Friday! I hope you've had a great week and ready to enjoy the weekend! Here's a couple of Father's Day cards that I made for my sons using the Cutting Cafe's Shirt and Tie Cutting File/Template Shaped Cards. It comes with 2 shaped card templates, a shirt and tie shaped card and just a tie shaped card and both have matching envelopes. This first is for my youngest son Kenny. I used the shirt and tie template. It's pretty much like the one I made for my father-in-law without the stitching and the colors flipped. I'm not real happy with the photo, it looks like the colors are washed out and kind of blend together...kind of blah but in real life it really looks much better---

Here is the recipe---
Card Size: Approx. 4"x5"
Card Template: Cutting Cafe-Shirt and Tie Cutting File/Template Shaped Cards
Sentiment: Cutting Cafe-Huge Father's Day Circle
Nestibilities: Circle/Scallop
Accessories: Buttons, Embroidery Floss, Foam Pop Dots
Patterned Paper: DCWV-La Creme
In this case, I used the patterned paper as the base card. The collar is part of the shirt and is cut as one piece then adhered to the inside left panel of the base card and folded over the top front to form the collar.

This next one is for my oldest son, Kevin. It's the same Shirt and Tie Cutting File/Template Shaped Cards but instead of the shirt and tie, I used the tie shaped card. Not only did I want his to be different but his birthday is next month so I will probably be using the shirt and tie then. I shaved off a tiny sliver of the bottom so it would stand by itself and I know in the picture the outer layer of the Nestibility around the sentiment looks off centered but it's really not, it must be the angle of the camera. I'm not doing too well taking pictures today am I...lol!
Here is the recipe---
Card Size: Approx-A Little Smaller Than 3"x A Little Larger than 5"
Sentiment: Cutting Cafe-Huge Father's Day Circle
Nestibilities: Circle
Accessories: Foam Pop Dots
Patterned Paper: DCWV-At Home, DCWV-Shimmer (tie shadow/outer layer of Nestibility)
That's it for today. I have things to do, places to go, and people to see this morning so I won't have a chance to visit my favorite blogs til later in the day, but I'll catch up with you either this afternoon or tonight to see what you've been up to. Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your day and have a wonderful weekend! I hope to see you back here on Monday!

Very nice, Kelly...with Fathers Day just around the corner, I was really looking forward to seeing what wonderful guy type cards you'd be coming up with. And as always, you did a great job with these! Your sons will surely be thrilled to get these neat cards. The guys in my life don't wear ties to work so I'm gonna have to think of something...
