FS134 - Father's Day and RAKS!!

Well it's that time of year again.......Father's Day is this Sunday and I have to try to think up THREE Man Cards! Bleh!! No pretty pearls or punches to play with and definitely no flowers - how dreary!!! :(

Today's card is inspired by this week's Featured Stamper - akronstamperdpk! I chose her Summer Recipe card - I really liked the layout and thought I could make it work for a FD card.

I started with a white base and layered with some Chocolate Chip and then some Kaisercraft Cafe Culture DSP (LOVE this paper range!) - two pieces that I then sliced on the angle. Of course I don't seem to have a simple Father's Day sentiment - so I created my own using JustRite's Times New Roman Font and Times New Roman Lowercase Font and the Rectangular Stamper. The beauty of the JustRite Font is you can create ANY kind of sentiment you want (with the spelling you want - which is very handy when you're an Aussie and things are spelt differently here!).

The image is from SU's retired For Father set that was stamped in Jet Black Stazon and coloured with markers and a blender pen and then cut using the Mega Curved Rectangle Nestabilities. While still in the die, I sponged around the image with some Close to Cocoa ink. I then layered it on a piece of Close to Cocoa cut with the same die set and popped it all up on foam tape. I finished off by adding some knotted twine and some Topaz Oregon Raindrops that my wonderful friend Michelle (aka sf9erfan) sent me today!!!! Thanks girlie!!!! :)

The other two pictures are two wonderful RAKS that arrived in my mailbox today!!!! The first is from Michelle - check out all that stuff!!!! K&Co paper, Basic Grey paper, Oregon Raindrops and some Angel Wings Shimmerz!!!!! I was sooooooo excited!!!! :)

I also recieved this lovely card from the devine Anne Ryan on SCS!!!! What a wonderful surprise and I just loved it!!!!

And don't miss the JustRite Blog Hop this month on the 17th/18th September!!! It's so big we had to make it over two days!!!! This month it's all about FONT and as you've seen by today's post, you can never have enough font to create that one of a kind sentiment or personalise a card, gift or project!!!

Well, this turned into quite a long post didn't it? That's all for today and thanks for visiting!!! :)

I still use flowers, punches and dark pearls on man cards, but then again you are nicer than me :-) Nice job with the manly requirements, nice RAKs too!! Now it is not every day that you can get away with saying nice RAK is it!!!

Wonderful Father's day card!! That paper and layout are perfect!!

Randi said...

Thanks for showing your FD card. May I CASE it? I need to make some thank you cards and they will be given from a man. Reflecting....Why do man cards seem to stifle our creativity instead of causing us to think ugh? Thanks
