Practical Masculine Cards

I LOOOVE me some layered fussy cutting with sticky-outy things and loads of depth and ribbon and frilly bits and embellishments.... but let's be honest, sometimes that isn't the most practical thing to pop in the mail.

Sometimes you just need a little "I'm thinking of you" to slide in the mailbox. No fuss. No muss.

Wanting to make something for my father-in-law for Father's Day, I set to work with Graphic 45's A Proper Gentleman, and some kraft coloured card blanks.

I ended up with 6 simple cards. All easily mail-able. Well under the weight/size to send using single stamp. Nothing to get in the way or bulk up the envelope.

They are exceedingly simple. Seriously. Get your kids in on this and show the fatherly types in your life that you're thinking of them. Or, make a batch to have on hand 'just in case'.

Now that I've made something simple and restrained, I need to balance it out with something ridiculous and opulent and stuffed to the gills with fussy things!

It's all about balance (or something like that).
