Getting ready for Father's Day

Hello blogland! Today's project I'd like to share is for this week's challenge at Cuttin' and Stampin' and the theme is Father's Day. Did you ever have an idea in your head for a project and knew just what you wanted to do, but it just didn't turn out the way you hoped? Yeah, that was me this week. I wanted to make a new version of a paper folded card for my husband that I made a few years ago, but no matter how I tried, it just wasn't working. So, I turned to my new toy, the Silhouette Cameo, and found a similar version to share with you today.

Now, you may laugh at my choice of colors and patterns, but my husband has this thing about blue shirts - he loves them, and most years at least one of the kids will get him a new blue shirt for Father's Day mixed with some other bold color. This was such a quick little card to make, and I really like how the Silhouette will make the perferation lines as well so I knew just where to fold everything, which was my problem with the first version I tried making.
Ok, your turn - show us your Father's Day projects by hopping over to Cuttin' and Stampin' and adding your submission by June 17.

Super cute card, Doris! You'll soon see I made the SAME card for my DT post! Great minds think alike, huh? LOL!
