Father's Day Card Quickies

I finished my last order for Father's Day cards today! Woot! I really tried to do just some CAS ones that I could get done fairly quickly because they all needed to go into the mail TODAY or TOMORROW in order for the people to have them for Sunday. I worked out a couple simple styles that I really liked, so I made note of them and I'm sharing them with you today in case you are stuck and need a couple more quick ones.

The first two cards were made using the Father's Day Freebie Word Art that is available on the Paper Makeup Stamps Blog. If you haven't grabbed it yet, you really need to because it is just amazing!

This was a super simple card to make, yet there is just something so elegant looking about Night of Navy with White...crisp and clean.

This card was made based on a card in the May 2009 CardMaker Magazine. It was also very easy and I enjoyed pairing up a nice light green with Brocade Blue. I'm VERY VERY sad that I didn't snag any more of Brocade Blue since it's being retired...It is just such a pleasant shade. I'm hoarding my scrap pieces! LOL!

Both of the cards above have Happy Father's Day on the inside and I chose to use my computer (with font BlackJack) rather than a stamp.

The next card was made with just a combo of Garden Green and White. I haven't ever used this green before and I liked it so much I had to check to make sure it wasn't being retired too! What a delightful green!

I just embossed the white layer with the Leafy Branch embossing folder and then did the corners with my scallop punch (just one little bite) and added the silver gems. The sentiment on the front is another one that I did using the same Black Jack font on my computer. On the inside I used THIS QUOTE by Paper Makeup Stamps.
