Earthy Father's Day

Since it is the week before Father's Day, I suppose it is wise to actually get started making cards FOR the day...LOL! I always forget to make them for myself and then scramble around trying to get them done. I find Father's Day cards are rather easy to whip out...I mean, masculine cards to me are all about the simplicity.

I pulled out some new long Kraft notecards that I recently purchased and used them for a nice one layer card for my dad. He's not into the fussy style, so this will work smashingly for him.

(Click for closeup)
The stamp set is Father Knows Best by Papertrey Ink. A recent investment and one that I'm very happy with. I love the trees in the set as well as the extra independent leaves.
I stamped the inside with a tree shadow and then one of the sentiments from the set--pay no mind to the crookedness...that was just the camera shot. LOL!

The thing that is funny is that my dad isn't going to even GET this card until after Father's Day because he's travelling overseas in China and Thailand on a business trip this weekend. So really, there was no hurry! LOL!
