Scrapbooking Father's Day Card

Father's Day Card

When it comes to making masculine cards my brain seems to work overtime. No ribbons, no flowers, no bright colors and no going crazy, OH MY GOSH!!!! Amazingly I did manage to design a card for my father who thankfully doesn't read this blog.

I thought with Father's Day sneaking upon us it would be nice to give a little inspiration to those of you who want to make a card for that special Father or Step Father in your life.
 Father's are amazing, they are always there for you , always sharing wisdom and comfort when the world is trying to shake the ground you walk on.
My Father (Step Father) is one of those kind of Dads. He is very supportive and always says the right thing. It is so nice to know that if disaster struck my Father would gladly open his arms to me... I love him dearly and my respect for him is off the charts for taking on a family of 5 and being a super amazing listener, what I love is that he understands me, what an amazing man.

To celebrate his kindness and everlasting love I made him this card... all the mushy stuff is inside, hehe, gotta have some privacy right? My Father lives in Newfoundland and there are plenty of moose and caribou there so I thought it would be appropriate to incorporate that into my design especially seeing that eating moose in NFLD is like eating beef here in PEI.

The "F" for Father's is actually a wooden letter that is covered in Flock to add softness to the "Sooooo manly Card"

I would love to hear your comments anytime so don't be shy!
