I know its a little late for Fathers Day this year, but I can never think of good cards to make for guys, and the idea is so clever I’m sure you can use it for numerous other occasions.
I’m in Haven shared a card she made for a challenge using a vintage record cover for inspiration. She linked to Project Thirty Three, which is full of lovely old record covers. This is the first one that caught my eye.
I grabbed a blank card and some paper I thought looked nice together and free hand cut the swoops. Afterwards, I thought the writing should have been on the two solid color swoops instead of on the background, and the green swirl closer to the bottom. I really liked using the record cover for inspiration – I always have a hard time thinking of cards to make for guys. I read a tip somewhere to always try and make 2 of any craft project when possible – it is so easy to go ahead and make a second card while everything is still out, and just leave the sentiment off, and add a slip of paper to note who you sent the duplicate card to. I really don’t mail things to too many people, but its nice to have a few extra cards handy.
