Fathers Day

These Fathers Day cards were made using the papers from the Making Cards magazine.

Using ribbon on a male card can be a bit tricky so I opted for good old parcel string instead, thought it also went quite well with the jungle theme and if you wanted to change the colour it's quite easy with ProMarkers.
This was the first time that I dared use my own hand-writing on the front of a card. I wrote on small strips of card so it wasn't so daunting writing it all out at once, cut them into ribbons and inked round the edges. I think it really worked with the papers from Polka Doodles, and to my surprise everyone liked it and said that I should do more like that. So what do I know, hey...
