This week saw the birthdays of my Dad and my Father-in-law (2 separate people before you think my family tree is that weird!). Both have their hobbies so I decided to create cards that would appeal to them.
My Dad is a keen golfer so I used the recently retired Clubhouse set to create this personalised golfing card. I love how the golf ball die adds the dimples to the ball – so clever!
My Father-in-Law lives by the seaside and we always go for a walk on the beach or the cliffs. My husband challenged me to make a coastal card – I think I’ve managed it using blends and the Sailing Home stamp set and dies.
I really love how the Stitched Rectangle cut out has made the frame for the ‘sea’ in this card. I used the Blending brushes on both the outside of the card and a separate insert piece to add different tones. the outside is Gray Granite to echo the lighthouse rocks ,whilst inside I’ve used Bermuda Bay and Pool Party for the sea.
Happy Birthday Dads!
