Father's Day Cards

Hi everyone, 

Okay, so I wanted to share some last minute Father's Day cards I made as my design team project for Country Craft Creations. I hope these bring some inspiration and creativity to you all. We have 5 days to get those cards made, right? 

I made two cards that I think are pretty easy to create and only take maybe start to finish 20 minutes. (maybe shorter)  So for the cards I used Authentique - Explore paper collection. I will provide instruction for each card. 

To begin I used one sheet of the 12x12 cut in half to make these two cards, this will be the base of your card. I might have cute them a little short after I folded them. 

First card -  I used the colored side of the world paper (chose this one because the reverse side is cream/brown. I used the 2 sheets from the 6x6 for the banners and a card from the Pocket Crafting cards for my focal image with "Happy Father's Day" stamped on it. I wrote the date in it because this will be given to my nephew in law as it's his first Father's Day. I used the brown paper from CountryCraftCreations to border my flags and the Pocket card. 

 The inside of the card I used a cream cardstock for the sentiment and then a small cut a-part from the Pocket-Crafting cards and adhered it.

Paper  - CountryCraftCreations - Authentique Explore
Stamps - Father's Day (from my stash)
