Father’s Day Card with Treat Box

Father’s Day has passed but I wanted to share a Father’s Day Card with treat box that was published in the June issue of Die Cut Crazy. Thanks Stephanie for letting me share my project! I used Cricut’s Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More 2 for the card and shirt box.

Argyle + Fish = Father’s Day

This is my second masculine card and I really love how it turned out.  I made this card for my Dad for Father’s Day.  I love the color combination of light blue, tan, and black.  It looks masculine but it’s also pleasing to the eye (at least my eye :)).  This argyle pattern doesn’t have to be used just for men either.  If you change the colors, it can be used for ladies as well (pink, yellow, white for example).  I like the simplistic look of this card.  It’s not too fussy and the colors make its own statement.  I kept the inside of the card minimal as well by adding the Happy Father’s Day phrase found on Wild Card and the corresponding fish icon.  I added Stardust Stickles to make the fish pop and the hints of silver and blue in the glitter work well with the card’s colors.  I hope you like my interpretation of the argyle card.  Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers out there.
