Father's Day Cards by Mia

Our grandaughter, Mia, was visiting the weekend before Father's Day; the first thing she wanted to do was to craft something. We looked through my saved pictures and she chose to make a card for her Dad and her two grandfathers as well.

This first card is a straight up CASE from Nancy Riley . Mia was really taken with the owl punch, she wanted to put the googly eyes on him. We used: 

Stamp Set: Best Dad Ever

Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla.

Accessories: Owl Builder, 2 1/2 and 1 3/8 Circle Punches, Big Shot, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, #2 Circles Die.

Thi next two cards were for her Grandfathers. She used the Stampin' Write markers to color the ties on the stamp then stamped the sentiment. She chose the colors for each card and the DSP, which is from Green House Gala, now retired. The card bases are Pacific Point. She struggled with the first card to get it straight, so I explained to her that some times we make it crooked on purpose so it wasn't so difficult..........

 This was the result! She laughed so hard about this one....I loved it. Great job, Mia!!

Thank you for being here today!

  1. Oh my! What a pleasant surprise to see a CASE of my Father's Day Owl card! I'm so very flattered that Mia wanted to use my design for her Father's Day card! Love her tie cards too!
