Father's Day Free Digi

Paper Makeup Stamps is offering this free digi word art on their blog. That was just the push I needed to get my Father's Day cards made. :) And what's even better is a chance to win a $25 certificate towards more digi stamps at the PMS store. All you have to do to be in the drawing is make a card or scrapbook page with this freebie and link it back to the PMS blog. All the details can be found here.


My first card is for my boys to give to their Dad. Their favorite colors are green and blue, so my mind immediately went to the papers from the Celestial Possibilities Kit. I picked this paper that has a busier pattern with lots of both green and blue in it. I like how the patterns in the stripes vary all the way across. I chose to cut out the digi word art with a Labels 7 nesties die, b/c my hubby is a bookworm and is always encouraging our boys to read more. I sponged inside the frame with Old Olive and Baja Breeze to match the paper. The textured blue paper and star brads are also from the Celestial Possibilities kit.


My second card is for my own Dad. I chose to go Clean and Simple with his card. One of his favorite colors is brown and I chose these papers from the Basic Grey Archaic pad. My Dad is a bookworm too, so I again used the Labels 7 nesties die to cut out the word art. I lightly sponged around it with Creamy Caramel ink. Then I added some twill, b/c that seems more manly than ribbon {grin}, and a couple Karen Foster thumbtack brads.

Blessings,
