This is a project I did with my stamp club for May. With Mother's Day (which I think should be everyday!) being over we move on to the next holiday- Father's Day. I don't know about you but I find masculine cards can sometimes be challenging. I absolutely adore the Urban Oasis Designer Series and especially love that the patterns are so diverse. From dots to flowers this paper is perfect for any project masculine or feminine. For the card I wanted to keep it clean and simple, something I also have a hard time doing. I will not tell a lie- I am an accessories junkie! From brads to buttons to ribbons to rhinestones, anything to pretty up a project. Imagine my excitement when Stampin' Up! brought out their Corduroy Brads and Buttons. Doing a little happy dance because they are definitely are an accessory that add a nice touch to these Father's Day projects.
Next to the card is a Clear Envelope Mini Album. You can find a great tutorial HERE on Split Coast Stampers. That siteis such a great resource for anything paper crafting related. I used the stamp set Enjoy Every Moment, which is a great set for lots of different sayings, and one thing I have certainly learned over these last few days with my husband being back in town is you truly do need to enjoy and cherish the little things in life. On that note I must go and "break up" a "fight" between the two oldest kids as I can hear them yelling in the front yard over the water hose! Ahhhh yes the little things how very precious they are. (And for those you that may only know me through this blog, that last stament wasdripping with sarcasm LOL!)
