Father's Day Cards

These are two cards I just made for Father's Day.
The first card I made for my husband. The image and sentiments are from a stamp set by Crafter's Companion called "Popcorn the Bear Father's Day set". It was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and then coloured in using copics (E44,E43,E42,E41, E49,E47,B97,B95,B93,G24,G21,G20,Y15,Y13,Y11,YR14,YR18,E49,E44,W3,W2,N4). The edges were then sponged with Ink Essentials sponging tool and Memento Desert Sand ink. Then the image was layered with some Bazzill brown cardstock to frame it. The plaid pattern paper is unknown as the company name was not on it but the green is from Amanda Blu & Co and is called Reptile Green Skin. I tore and ink the one edge of the patterned plaid paper. It was then embellished using brown brads and brown grograin ribbon. The inside of the card was finished with some white card stock and trimmed with some of the same plaid paper. The sentiment and flower on inside were from the same stamp set.
The golfer card I have made for my son-in-law who of course likes to golf. The stamp is from Stamping Bella and is called Golfella. I coloured him using copics (E11,E00,E000,YR18,YR14,YR12,G24,G21,G20,E29,E27,E25,E35,E33,E31,B0000,Y08,Y11) and to create the shorts I stamped the immage on the plaid paper and then cut out just the shorts and glued them in place on the coloured image. I also stamped the Happy Father's Day sentiment (from the Popcorn the Bear set) and cut and then embossed both using Spellbinders Nestabilites "Labels Eight" set. The inner edges where then sponged before removing the die using Memento Desert Sand ink and Ink Essentials sponging tool. I then layered the golfer image with some green cardstock I had cut to give a narrow edging. The golf ball was cut out using a round punch from white cardstock that had been embossed using the Cuttlebug "Tiny Bubbles" embossing folder and using the wrong side to look like the dimples on a golf ball. The edges were inked with Versa Colour pinecone ink to give it more definition. The brown, green, and orange cardstock is by Bazzill. The plaid paper did not have any paper company name of it so it is unknown. The inside of the card was finished with a rectangle of white card stock and trimmed with a strip of the plaid paper.
