Father's Day cards

Well, you can tell from the date of my last post when my job became very time consuming!!!  Here are the cards I made for Father's Day:

I was running low on inspiration and so I hopped on to SplitCoastSampers to see what others were doing.  Well, I found some cards that were absolutely fabulous and so I started creating my own - I need three!

Traffic Jam card

I found a card that used the Traffic Jam embossing folder from Cuttlebug.  I've had this forever, but haven't really used it.  I like how the simplicity of the card allows the embossing to stand out.   Here is the card that inspired this one.

Cardstock:  The card  base is a tan color from The Paper Cut, the darker brown is Sizzix suede and is embossed.  The blue strip, which has a slight design on it, is from a pack of paper that is made with recycled paper and from Wal-Mart.  I don't remember the company's name, but is has recycled in it.  Accessories:  Cricut All Mixed Up cartridge, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and Traffic Jam embossing folders.

Star card

I CASEd this card.  I used browns with a rust color as the accent.  I just love this mulberry paper from Marco's paper - it has speckles of different browns in it.

Cardstock:  Rattan from The Paper Cut, mulberry paper from Marco's Paper, scraps.
Stamps:  Happy Father's Day from Aunt Amy's
Ink:  Adirondack Cabin Fever
Accessories:  Large SU star punch, Cuttlebug embossing folders - D'Vine Swirls, Swiss Dots and one that I don't know the name of.

Squares card

I used the layout from this card and used this card as the inspiration to add texture by embossing.

Cardstock: Jellybean green by The Paper Cut, mulberry paper from Marco's Paper, browns/tans are unknown and the striped paper is from the Safari pack by The Paper Studio.
Ink: I used black ink to edge the brown layer.
Accessories:  brads, Cuttlebug embossing folders, Swiss Dots and ?.

Happy Father's Day!
