Father's Day Cards

I made some of these father day cards. I learned how to fold the ties here.
The white shirt card takes one cut about an inch down the middle of the front of the card and then folded from that point to the edges.
The blue shirt card takes two cuts on the outside edges. There is a video tutorial in the last 45 seconds of this video. Easy Peasy.

Fresh cuts Card

This card only took me 2 min. to make! I even had to put my stamps together! Seriously. The die cuts stamps and card make this super quick! I stamped the large background in Certainly Celery. And the saying in Basic Gray. I used out our 5-petal flower punch with Basic Gray cardstock and but a brad through the middle.

I also whipped up another card with one of the leftover pieces that you punch out from your laser cut flower. I thought it looked like the flame of a birthday candle. I just sponged it with a little barely banana ink. I just used scraps that I had laying around from other cards to throw this one together. I always save all my scraps, "thinking" I'll use them, and I finally did!
