Father's Day cards


I pulled out some old paper packs today in masculine colors to get
some Fathers Day inspiration and came up with two and a spare!  The
light house die makes two cards since you do an inlaid design, the
top one is my spare and the middle one is for my hubby.  The
lighthouse is Die Versions and the wheel is Momenta.  On my
dad's I paired a couple papers and embossed with a Tim
Holtz wood grain embossing folder, picked some coordinating papers
and come up with the third card.  Below is the snippets I used
up on all three, anxious to play with the rest of them as they
are great for masculine cards:

Have a wonderful day!

A few fun challenges:

You did a great job on all of these great masculine makes. I love the lighthouse but that embossed wooden panel looks great in those different colors. NJ on all of these!

What a great masculine set of cards! Love them all of course - perfect die cut of the lighthouse for 'chaps cards' too.

Donna, your paper piecing and inlay are beautifully done! I always admire the dexterity in other people's fingers for putting together such small pieces. the earthy tones in your wonderful woodsy creation is my favorite! Loving the colors and textures!
Wishing you a beautiful day. Thanks for brightening mine with your fun blog post.

What nice Fathers Day cards and a spare as well. I think maybe we should make a masculine card when I come up. What do you think???
