Last Minute Quick & Easy Father’s Day “Lovely As A Tree” Card

For those of you scrambling at the last minute for a Father's Day card, here is one I must made and it only took me probably five minutes….and you don't even have to think up the design!  This old stamp set, "Lovely As A Tree" has been around a long time and we always hold our breath at retirement time thinking it might go.  Fortunately, it is still here and is such a versatile set, especially when you need a masculine card.

On this card I just used Kraft as the card base, stamped with some Close to Cocoa leaves, lightly (stamping off first after inking up).  The tree is stamped with Basic Brown and literally scribbled in with some markers, Close to Cocoa for the tree trunk and various greens for the leaves.  A little sponging if you want around the edges, layer, adhere, and you have a card.  You can stamp "Happy Father's Day" on the inside or write your own message.  Of course you could add some ribbon or hemp twine or any other embellishments to jazz it up, but most fathers won't want it jazzed up!


Happy Father's Day!
