It's Father's Day here tomorrow in Australia and I have already made a couple of cards for my hubby and Dad. You saw the Tie/Shirt that I made a couple of weeks ago, well here is another version that I made.

I saw a card at Convention which was made by another demo, it was up on the display board, so I have no idea who she was but this is where I got the idea from. My version is quite different to hers and I am thinking of giving this card to my Dad.

Colours are very similar to the other card as I have a huge stash of Basic Gray card because of a mix up with a customer's order .. hi Sue :)

Card used is Basic Gray, Whisper White and So Saffron. The tie and hanky are from a DSP Patterns range and the stamp used for the pocket is from Occasional Greetings and is stamped in Basic Gray. Oh and I used a texture Plate to give the shirt a woven look.

Now here is the second card.

This card is for Greg.

I have used Soft Suede, River Rock, Whisper White and Riding Hood Red for the cardstock. Ink is Soft Suede, River Rock, Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip and Wild Wasabi. The tree is from Trendy Trees and the word background is from a new set called On a Pedestal .. stay tuned for a card posted on my blog with this set.

You can also see the new Woodgrain Background Stamp which I won at Convention for achieving $20,000 in sales last year. I wasn't sure if I liked it but it turns out that it is quite a useful background stamp ... more samples to follow later with this stamp, and the Happy Father's Day is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments. Can you see the brand new Modern Label punch? I love this punch and it co-ordinates perfectly with Word Window, both must haves on anyone's wish list.

Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's out there!
