The first card took me more than a day to create because there are some stitching which takes some time to do. Also I was not able to find any ribbon that is appropriate for this Fathers Day card so had to go to the shop for it. I chose to visit a rubber stamp shop and fellowship with my friend, Joan. She has beautiful ribbons and of course, lots of rubber stamps. As a result, I spent the whole day there.
The second card is real simple. I used a rubber stamp I bought from Joan and the words for the card were from a two clear rubber stamps. What I did was to place 'Dad' just below 'You're Special' and I have the words 'You're Special, Dad'.
Anyway, here are the two cards and the items needed to make these Happy Father's Day Cards followed by the step-by-step instructions.
