C.R.A.F.T 54 - Father's Day/Mens Cards

Well folks, most of us have got 'em, some of us have lost 'em, and some of us just wish we had!
But on the whole,
most of us love 'em! That'll be our Dads then, won't it?

So we are having a 'Father's Day' challenge (...quelle surprise...) for you to express your feelings for that man who gave you life - or vent your speen, whichever takes your fancy!

Me? I really liked my Dad. I loved him, but, I actually LIKED the little guy too! And the two don't always go hand in hand, as with any other family member...!

Although I loved and liked my lickle Dad he's, sadly, no longer here for me to give a card to so I've made one for my Hubby Nic's Dad instead. It's not my usual style of card because I've tailored it to suit the man who's in his eighties and likes tigers!

Materials and method

One 21cm square textured white card
One length of blue organza ribbon
Two photos of Bengal Tiger, one with a dark blue border and greeting
Four photocorners

What you see is what you get....! LOL!

As well as being my demo card this week, I've also entered this for the lovely Magical Crafts Fortnightly Challenge as they too have a Father's Day theme!
