one card . three ways | father's day card download

Hello June!
Hello watermelon, splashing in the pool, home grown tomatoes, sleeping in, ice cream and popsicles. And flip flops.
Gotta love that.

And we gotta love our Father's, Father's-in-Law, the Dad's to our children and those father figures that were always there for us. And this celebration is always tough on those men and women that so desperately want to be parents and have prayed and struggled and continue to hope. Let us not forget them.

Doing a little download love today with one card design, three ways. Here's what we'll begin with,  download yours here.

As you can see, I printed my design onto kraft cardstock, white cardstock and some speckletone natural tan cardstock just to show you how you can change up the look by varying what cardstock you choose.

Let's take a look at the white cardstock option now. I thought it would be fun to use an outline font so that the kids can color in the front of the card for their favorite DaDa or Papa. My girlies were busy, so I colored my own card for my Sweetie.

The solid Caribbean baker's twine from The Twinery is a great accent. I used it along with some solid Denim to wrap my gift and attach my gift tag to the package I wrapped in kraft paper from the paint section at The Home Depot. 

And the speckled tan kraft-like cardstock happens to be my favorite version. I like that it's a bit rustic without going to the extreme of kraft. I added the solid Denim to the front of the striped design at the top and bottom and Caribbean to tie the tag shape I punched which is adorned with the small embellishment that was scallop punched. 

The vintage German camera is my Birthday slash Mother's Day gift from Zach and Ruth. So cool!

Now the kraft cardstock. Very rustic. In retrospect, I should have used some garden twine on this card, kind of like I do here. I punched a tiny heart and attached it to the front of the card just because I thought it needed a little oomph. I added another to the gift tag that I attached to the gift card attached inside the card.

By the way, did you know that an Amazon gift card fits inside an A2 card perfectly? Well, it does. Here's where you can find the square flapped envelopes I used.
