Father's Day cards

Good morning everyone :)

Well,  thankfully I managed to get the Father's Day cards made for yesterday
and I had two little helpers who wanted to make their own ~ so all done in no time!

It's been a few weeks since I've had time to enter the Less is More challenge
and this week the theme of 'something shiny' was perfect for making Richard's card.

 My Silhouette got a good workout as I hadn't time for any colouring at all.

The white base card is 7"x 5" folded landscape. I printed the sentiment (Rod font) on white card and matted it on silver card.  Then I cut circles from silver and white card and layered them together. The tools were cut with the Cameo and glued to the circles.  I then matted the completed rectangle to the card with foam pads.

This 2nd card is the one I made for Lydia to give to her Dad.

It's also cut out with the Cameo from Bazzill kraft card and I highlighted the sentiment by decoupaging with paper from DCWV green stack.
I tied some yellow Divine twine around the 'D' and added a tiny button.
Then I doodled some faux stitching around the outside to frame it all.

That's it for now!
I also made 2 cards for my own Dad but I still have to take a photo of them.
I'll upload them as soon as I've that done.

Thanks for stopping by today,
I really must make a start on the teacher cards, I've put it off long enough...
'See you later!'
Take care :)
