Heart to Heart Father's Day Card Challenge

Another reason to get inspired this week, I decided to play along with Heart to Heart Challenges (see button in sidebar) and of course it was a Father's Day Card challenge. So as I was looking thru the latest issue of Papercraft's Magazine a card caught my eye. Following thier design, I created my own version of this card using Close to my Heart products.

Using a my favorite 2 patterned papers from the Sarsparilla Paper Pack and stamping with Western Flourishes in the background. Mostly monotone, this a cool masculine card that will please my husband.

As you can see I used a large Chipboard star(not CTMH), that was inked in Twilight and then stamped Western Flourishes in Black for a neat design. Colonial White buttons with Black embroidery floss finish off the center of the star.

Just for fun I stamped the inside with my favorite swirly star stamp from Out West, just to make the inside as cute as the front. Hope you all like my Father's Day card, I welcome any comments and suggestions.


  1. I love this card! All the elements are so well balanced, and the cool colors are a nice touch. TFS.

  2. I completely agree! You always match your colors so well with the theme, if that makes sense! Love it! Will you teach me this at our next crop?

  3. very nice! thanks for playing along with H2H!
