Hello crafty friends! I hope all the dads are having a wonderful Father’s Day!
For this Father’s Day post I am including the uploaded DIY tutorial video for 3 cards I created. The theme was circles and faces.
I recently purchased clear stamps from my visit to Puerto Rico which were just a series of faces with varying emotions and I knew I wanted to use them for this project. For the circles I decided to use a hole punch, a stencil set I also purchased in P.R. which included a large polka dot stencil and some very old foam geometric shaped stamps I found in my stash.
I am having trouble uploading the individual photos for each card onto this post but you can see them each in the video below.
All 3 cards are standard A2 size. I used distress inks and the circle foam stamp on the first card, an ink blending tool for the polka dot stencil in the second card and a 1 1/4″ hole punch in the third. I am very happy with how these cards turned out and I sent one to my father, my father-in-law and I gave one to my husband.

I love to be able to create one of a kind cards for my loved ones and friends. Every now and then I get an order for personalized or special occasion cards and I really enjoy making those as well. Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you will stop by again soon!
Until next time XoXo
