Happy Fathers Day!

It's Fathers day here in the UK today so I have a couple of masculine cards to show  you.
I made the one with the moustache for my daughter to give to my hubby, but was inspired to make a second after I had decorated the inside of the first,( which I forgot to take a photo of) the non-writing side of the inside is pretty much the same as the front of the second card, just not layered up with foam pads.
We only needed one card and given the choice Meg picked the World's Best Dad card, so I shall put the other one away for next year.

Papers - For Him digital scrapbook kit - Oohlala Scraps at Just So Scrappy
Sentiments - Computer generated
Ribbons and pearls - Meiflower

I made up my toppers in Photoshop and printed them out along with all the papers, before matting and layering them up to make the cards, I printed out a second moustache and 2 crowns, and added the second moustache to the topper with foam pads. 
I shaped the crowns and atttached the first, over the sentiment with foam pads, making the middle a double layer so that it would hold the rounded shape, then repeated the process with the second crown, it really stands out from the card in real life. The only extras I added where a couple of stick on pearls to the crown card and black satin and black gingham ribbon to the moustache card.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look,
Colette xx
