More Father's Day cards using the Silhouette

Hello again,

I'm just posting these cards that I made for my own Dad now that I've got the photos.

I cut the words out of navy card using the Silhouette Cameo.
I tied 'airmail' divine twine around the card a few times before layering on a 7"x 5" white card blank with foam pads.
I finished off by rounding the corners of the card with a Corner Chomper and adding a red heart button to the bow.

The Grandpa card from the 3 children.

Using the Cameo again, I cut out the stick man (grandpa) from black card.
I glued him on white card, then rounded the corners. I printed and cut out the sentiment and threaded raffia through each side and layered on green card.

I then matted it on black card with foam pads and layered that on a white card blank.

To finish I added faux stitching around the edges and glossy accents to his glasses.
I'm pleased to say that Dad loved his (very simple) cards :)

Right....I'm off to bed ~ it's Caleb's sports day tomorrow and Phoebe has a school trip to a farm
so it'll be all systems go in the morning to get them organised and out in time!

Still haven't the teacher cards made  (just in case you were wondering lol)
Night night

I WAS wondering! Okay, no I wasn't. But I do LOVE these adorable FD cards!

(You could sell Cameos easy . . .)

I love both of these but that grampa just made me laugh out loud! I keep trying to resist the Silhouette because I have a Cricut, but I'm weakening.... lol!

Hi, To cut the letters out, I use the Silhouette Cameo which is an eletronic die cutting machine.
