Celebrate Dads Card | RECIPE

As we turn our focus to the month of June, it’s time to Celebrate Dads with this super simple patriotic card, just in time for Father’s Day…

Celebrate Dads Card

While it’s been 2 years since I lost my dad to leukemia, I was a bit surprised to find myself wanting to purchase the ‘No Ordinary Dad’ Stamp Set from Close To My Heart. I mean, after all, Father’s Day and similar holidays are still a sore spot with me. But I digress…

Over in my StampinBuds Facebook Group, I have been sharing some free card templates in a ‘Thoughtful Thursday’ post with my crafty friends to encourage creativity. But this got me thinking…

The PROCESS:

First, I decided to pair the beautiful Stars & Sparklers Paper Collection with this template that I created…

Cute Cards with StampinBuds - 053121

Then, it just so happened that #CC52122 was the perfect size to fill the main area of my card. Crazy! I actually got some use out of a Stamp Set that I just ‘had to have’ even though I never thought I’d actually get any use out of it – lol.

Next, as I’m sitting here (right now) putting together this blog post, I decided that bringing back my popular CUTE CARD CLUB would be a fantastic idea! Hence the name on my template – Cute Cards! 😉 Definitely something I should’ve done during the pandemic, but oh well. Bright ideas are better late than never, right?

So, be watching for more details about the return of my Cute Card Club within the next several days. I’m excited and I hope you are too!
