Father's Day Cards

I had quite a lot of time during my half term break so I made these: Father's Day cards :) One for my dad and two for my bf's dad and grandad. Again, I used my beloved circular badge stamps from Lilli of the Valley and some brown craft paper, which I have been so much into recently :) The cards are in natural subdued colours, typically male shades.

For my dad I made a mosaic card and embellished the tiles with a 3D relief paste. I chose rich dark brown card as the base and a vintage stamp as the focus of attention.

For my bf's dad and grandad I chose a stripey background to give it a bit vintage and a bit of a folky look. Vintage images were stamped with the Walnut Stain TH ink.

I made an extra  Father's Day card but this time in a shabby chic style, fully scrapbooked and messy on purpose :) a rugged composition of corrugated brown craft paper, macrame string, tea stained gauze, ceramic and plastic buttons, cotton tape, staples and brown wrapping paper stamped with a texture background stamp. A card for a dad who likes unconventional way of receiving wishes ;P

  1. I really like them all! But the best for me... yes - the last one! I love your card! Can I ask you about glue? What kind of glue do you use for your cards?

  2. Thanks :) Kasia, I use a Polish glue named "Magic" for stitcking on all rough and textured objects and it holds up brilliantly! :) for craft paper I use a roller glue (glue in tape) as well as double sided Bostik tape :)

  3. These are really beautiful! Love the rich colors you used to. Hope they love them! I've got my daughter coloring up her father's day card right now as we speak :)

  4. Thanks Martha! I would like to try making cards... I think... I think....Have a nice Sunday!
