Father's Day Cards - The Cutting Cafe

I am a day late, but that is how my entire week is going. UGH!

I am here today to show you the Father's Day cards I made using some files from The Cutting Cafe. I used the Shirt & Tie Cutting file and created both of these cards.

I used an embossing folder to add the texture to the shirt and I found this old paisley pattern paper that I thought would make a perfect tie. I added some pearls to the shirt and my sentiment across the front to finish it off.

I also made the tie shaped card too. I couldn't resist adding some stitching around the edges to give it some dimension.

I added a tab to the side and embellished with letter stickers that say 'Dad'.

I have 2 fathers that will be happy to have one of these cards. I can't wait to give them. Be sure to visit The Cutting Cafe blog and see what the other ladies have created this week. The post is already up......just click here.

  7. I wanted to pin your beautiful card but alas I could not. Its either my lack of knowledge or some kind of block. Anyway, I love the Fathers Day card.
