Today, you will find excellent Father’s Day cards, a birthday card and a fun project with Flower Shop. Each project is more beautiful than the next, and we absolutely love sharing your work.

Heidi shared, “Well I had to come up with something for hubby with what I have with me. So here we have from finishing school boxes the heirloom lace with a hint of Carte Homme velum in the background. Cut a little spiral off the happy Birthday toppers and added just for you. I did not have my Father’s Day embellishments with me. Anyhow there he is haha. Happy Fathers Day to all.”

Such a great, summery card!

Here’s the card I crafted for him utilizing the following Anna Griffin Inc. tools & supplies: Classic Car Easel Die, 3D Victorian Slimline Concentric Frame Dies, 3D Stars Aligned Dies, shimmer metallic cardstock grey/green, and Collage Card Toppers for Him.”

Diane wrote, “My husband was surprised with the Father’s Day card I made because it represents nearly everything he’s interested in or has personally done. The card was mostly pulled & put together from the Simply Father’s Day Card Making Kit, Handsome Cut & Emboss Folder and Anna’s Die Cuts for Him, except the red bike!”

Sherry shared, “Right out of Finishing School, I made this card for my friend and her 2 yr old granddaughter. They like to garden together so I wanted to give them some special together time. I added decorations that a 2 yr. old would find fun to discover–a kitty on a chair; a butterfly on the Hello banner; flowers draping down the sides of the shop; a ladybug on the tree and a gardening poem. Inside the Flower Shop Box is a poem and three packets of seeds to plant and watch grow. This was fun to make and fun to give.”

Adina shared, “I really love the look of the Le Coin Criss Cross Square die. But, it doesn’t have a shadow layer die. Today, I tried to make one, actually two. One I traced and used my scissors. The other one I did freehand using my craft knife. Neither one turned out that great. If you have any suggestions about how to make a shadow layer, please share! Thanks!”

Lori wrote, “I really enjoyed making this birthday card for my nephew who is a huge baseball fan. I used materials from the Celebration Chest and the Sporty Icons Cut and Emboss folders.”
