Father's Day Cards and Altered Label Packaging
A couple of Father's Day cards to share. The top one is the one I gave to Hubby. I used papers from BoBunny, Mama-razzi (their first collection). Used spellbinder die label 8 and another die that Ms. "L" had on hand. Inked the edges using a black dabber paint. The sentiment was done by using one of the fonts on my computer and half-back pearls.
The second card was made by my Daughter. An origami tie card. Glad to have Her home for a bit.
Hope it was a nice Father's Day for all the Dads out there. : )
I also want to share another altered project using the packaging from the address labels. I made some address labels for my Daughter and I thought I would dress up the packaging.
I took apart the packaging to make it easier to trace and attached the papers to. I used double sided tape.
I inked the edges using the paints I had in my supplies and a text stamp where any exposed areas that were not covered with paper.
I used a few sheets from this paper pad by K&Company called "Valentine Sweetheart". Make sure the papers you use will fold nicely without cracking. Test your papers out first.
I traced, cut out, and inked the edges of my papers.
A fun way to re-use something that was going into the recycle bin. Now just add some pre-made address labels and some stationery.

Here are the labels. There is an address on them but I did some photo shop to deleted it. The flower and "Noteworthy" is from a new stamp set that a purchased by Hapmton Art called "life defined". A Danielle Johnson design.
