By The River …

 

 

 

Good morning bloggers, the start of a new week and I have another male card to share today

I’m trying to give you plenty of inspiration for your Father’s Day cards this week and also for our June challenge which is to make us a card that fits the theme...

Male or Sporty 

This cute shaped card was made by Lou, she’s used our ‘By The River’ stamp

 

By The River - Lou

 

The useful Happy Birthday words are on the Scroll Sentiments set

I like how Lou did the faux stitching around the edges, she was demoing this at our Birthday event and I think a few of you went away thinking you might have a go – a nice finishing touch to your card and very easy to do
