Cards for Dads, cont.

Here is my second installment of Father’s Day cards I made for OWH.

Dad Card - Service Station Attendant

Dad Card – Service Station Attendant

I actually remember when service station attendants actually existed and it brings back such a nostalgic feeling. I can almost smell the gasoline and motor oil. The tire track stamp and diamond plate embossing folder went along perfectly with the theme. The stamps are by Tim Holtz and the embossing folder is from Sizzix.

Father's Day Card - Car Theme

Father’s Day Card – Car Theme

To continue the car theme (kind of near and dear to my heart since my own dad worked at Ford for many, many years), I used a car stamp – which I am SURE must be a Ford – with lots of gears and bolt stamps. I mimicked the gear shape in the two circular pieces and got a little more “mileage” out of the tire track stamp (pun intended). The car stamp is from a set called Dude, which was designed by OWH’s founder Sandy Allnock and is produced by Hero Arts.  Gear shape pieces are from Cricut’s Elegant Edges cartridge.

Dad Card - Fore My Dad

Dad Card – Fore My Dad

This golf card will hit a hole in one for many dads out there. I don’t remember who made the golfer stamp but the saying is from Unity Stamps.

Father's Day Card - Lovely as a Tree

This card uses Stampin Up’s Lovely as a Tree stamped in light gray, and I thought the masculine color combination set it off nicely.

Anyhero Card - Off the Charts by Stampin Up

Included in each box sent to OWH we include “anyhero” cards. These cards have thank you notes written inside and are dispersed to the military folks who sacrifice and work so hard to keep us safe and free. A big thank you to Judy for writing out half of the anyhero cards and saving my poor hand from aching. The stamp is from a retired Stampin Up set called Off the Chart, so I thought the eyeglasses at the top of the chart set it off just right. The glasses were made with my Cricut cartridge called Nifty Fifties.

Lastly, here is what a box of 278 cards and envelopes looks like just before it is taped up and taken to the post office.

Now I am off to start a brand new batch. Thanks for looking and putting up with all my puns!
