I thought I would stick with the masculine card theme and show you the card I made for my husband's birthday which is today! Happy Birthday! I didn't think it was weird to have the word "Dad" at the top until I started to write my post. My dad passed away many years ago, so I never need to make a Father's Day card or Birthday card that would actually say "Dad". I do for my FIL, though. Anyway, my husband is just "
Dad" around these parts! LOL!
June is a busy month for us...my husband's birthday, Father's Day and our Anniversary! I guess I will be sharing more cards that I make for him as the month goes on. I was thrilled to use this newer PTI set called "7th inning stretch". I knew that with 4 boys it would come in handy, especially for coaches gifts, etc. My oldest decided not to play baseball this year, which is a first in a very long time, so I haven't been able to use it until now. My husband has been playing a baseball video game after the kids go to bed, so I thought he would enjoy the theme. It is funny, but I never like to spend a lot of time on the cards that my husband gets. I guess it is because I know what is going to happen to them. I am sure most of the cards that I make end up in the trash, but I don't have to actually see it or be the one doing it.
I chose the background paper because it was masculine and it reminded me of a baseball diamond. I love the colors, too. I have been trying to pull out my tremendous amounts of SU! paper and start using it. It has been so long since I have been a demonstrator that I can't even remember when half of the paper came out. If I like it, I am using it and I don't care how old it is.
Since I was making one card, it seemed silly not to make two and have one on hand. I changed it up just a little as you can see and I couldn't resist adding some felt ric-rac to the bottom. I hope I didn't make it girly! Thanks for fluttering by!
P.S. I have quite a few projects to share with you. It seems so weird to have so much to share! I might make my goal of posting more than I did in 2010, too!
