Happy Fathers Day

Hi Folks
Hope you all had a lovely bank holiday weekend.  Only four more sleeps left now before my holiday.  I am getting very excited and I apologise if I am not around much this week.  Got to fit in going to work and getting all the packing done etc.

Today I thought I would share with you a couple of Fathers Day cards made using my Brother Scan and Cut machine.

I used some free cutting files that I downloaded from Bird's Cards here.


For this first one I cut the background and the sentiment out of white card using the free cutting files.  These were then mounted onto white and then black card.  I added some gingham ribbon across one corner and added the word DAD which I used a die for.  Some gems and little metal cogs in the opposite corner finished the card.


The background and Happy Fathers Day sentiment were done using cutting files.  I made this one into a twisted easel card.  I also cut out the letters for the work DAD using my Scan and Cut.  Although it doesn't look like it the top part of the card is the same colour blue as the bottom.  Obviously when taking the photo a shadow was cast making it appear darker.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.
