One for the Guys!

I thought it was about time I shared my Father's Day card with you all! There's a very good reason you haven't seen it till now - my Dad reads my blog and I didn't want him to see it (Hi Dad!) I used my favourite new paper on this one...and also my spiral punch - which I've had forrrrrrrever but haven't used on a project till now! I love it though and will be using it tons from now on!
All the papers for this one are from the Notebook paper pack. Aren't they gorgeous? The ink is Soft Sky and the cardstock is Kraft. I crinkled the top piece of paper before inking the edges slightly with River Rock ink, stitching with Linen Thread and punching with the spiral punch.

The stars from Wanted are stamped in Close to Cocoa on Kraft and punched with the small star punch.

The sentiment from Occasional Greetings was distressed with my cutter kit before layering on Kraft card.

I think this one would easily work for any "guy occasion" just a change of sentiment and you have a birthday card. Super simple and modern!

I got a lovely big parcel today with some new goodies, so will share my new fav thing's something that's been on my wishlist since April and I can't wait to show you how cool it is (the photos in the catty don't do it justice!)

  5. Sarah this is wonderful! I love the papers and the colours you used...fantastic! I haven't used my spiral punch in forever either...thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Love this! So rugged and dad-like and the stitching down the side of the paper is so cool! :) I think I've only used my spiral punch once in the year I've had it. Must be time to dig it out and dust it off!
