Father's Day Card Using Scraps

Recently I was inspired by a lady who was making a whole batch of masculine cards for Operation Write Home.  Over the last week I have slowly been making masculine cards for OWH out of a 4.5x6.5" paper stack I bought from Hobby Lobby called Glasses, Staches & Ties.  I currently have 41 almost finished and I think that is a good number to stop at for now.  This one was made using scraps of different patterned papers after making other cards.
I added four gold adhesive metal circles in the corners of the die cut around the sentiment.  

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

  1. What a great cause. I love making cards for OWH- I haven't done it in awhile, but I think I will as soon as I am finished with the big project I am working on now. I love the design and the guy papers you used keep it up. It is a real moral booster for the troops.
