For my Father's Day cards I wanted to use some of my Mac Guyver scrapbooking skills to put them together. Since I don't have to worry about the archival safeness of the materials I used some items from here and there that I have been saving for this very type of project.
The corrugated paper fronts of each card came from the packaging of my husbands new BBQ grill. I used each one in a different way making each card unique, just like each man I gave it to.
For my husband, the man who holds the key to my heart, a key was the theme. For my father, fishing was the theme since he, and my mother have been doing a lot of fishing. For my father-in-law, John Deere was the hidden theme because of his love for the tractors.
