I love to make handmade cards. Father’s Day, however, is probably the hardest holiday to make cards for. We all love colorful paper and frilly ribbons and bows but those are just not appropriate for masculine cards. For this Father’s Day card, I chose some neutral base colors with a patterned paper on top that had just a splash of color here and there. On the sentiment, I had to resist the urge to cut it out with a frilly die cut from SpellBinders! I stayed with a simple rectangle to emphasize the words because those are the most important part of the card! I love Duetica Fonts because I can make my cards “say” exactly what I want them to say while being elegant and bold at the same time. On this card I used the Duetica DT Tin Whistle font. It is a bold and masculine font and fits right in with the style of the card. And as we all know, our fathers are good men, good friends, and most of all, good fathers.
