Father's day cards

  Can't believe it's the middle of June already, which means Father's day is Sunday! I got my cards made so i thought I'd share them with everyone. I'm also linking one of them up with the Lawnscaping challenge.

  I water colored the background in different shades of blue . Used a decorative edge punch for the waves on the vellum. Layered my boat between them. Die cut the sun, added a few birds and embossed a couple of clouds and sentiment. ( The clouds are actually meant to be bushes, but ever since I first saw the image I saw a cloud) :) I didn't like the way the edges were looking with the watercolor paper and vellum so I decided to add some thick twine around the image to finish it off.

Here's my card:
Products used:
Lawn Fawn- Lets polka 6x6 paper, Stamps: Float my boat ( boat/ sentiment) and Into the woods (cloud), Dies (Spring showers)
Recollections: Detail white Embossing powder
Misc: Wave border punch, vellum paper, white cardstock, watercolor paper, thick twine. 

I won't go into full detail on the other cards, but will still show them... The card up top is for my hubby. Then Alex wanted help making him a card so we came up with this:

I had seen someone from the Lawn Fawn DT make a shield and thought Alex would like to make one too! Daddy will love it!

This card is for my dad:

And the last card is for my Father in law. I've already posted this card, but thought I'd include it anyway since it is a fathers day card too! : )

 Thanks for stopping by and a Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!!!
