Father’s Day is tomorrow! If you need a touching last minute card, our Artists in Residence have you covered with a variety of nautical inspired masculine cards suitable for any father figure.
Can you picture one of these favors topping a place setting or perhaps lined up together on a tray next to the door so your guests will see them as they leave? Favors are one of those things that are made even more exciting by the wrapping! I love creating fun packaging for gifts and cards. This idea is designed for wedding favors but can be easily altered to use for other occasions.

As soon as I heard the theme for this project was gift card holders, I immediately thought of a pocket card. Of course with my own little twist. It is the perfect way to be a little bit ‘sneaky’ with an unexpected gift…as you will see from my tutorial. ENJOY!

In Germany we say “April, April, der macht was er will“ which means the weather in April is capricious. It could be rainy or sunny almost like summer time. “April showers bring May flowers” is the American adage. And this card suits to both Countries! This card is very simple to make and has a surprising illusion effect.

I was asked to make an April Showers card, but misread the April part of the email so I decided that it would be an April BABY Shower card! I mean really – how adorable are those baby animals with their Pico embellished umbrellas?!? I just don’t know what I did before the Pico was invented. Now I use it on almost every card! See how easy it is to get hooked on the Pico Embellisher making your own card.

“April Showers” in the Southern Hemisphere are slightly different than those in the Northern hemisphere – we are heading from summer to Autumn/Fall and April Showers are more than welcome but bring with them a reminder that we are heading to cooler tempertures and…rain! Make a splash and create your own card!

Instead of buying one of those boring, standard banners from a party store, why not create your own that’s sure to WOW and amaze all your guests? It’s simple to create a layered banner that gets everyone into a festive mood for celebrating!
Artist In Residence Linda Lucas recently created this fabulous banner for a very special baby shower. And because the new arrival is going to be a boy, instead of the “traditional” baby colors she switched things up a bit with a different color palette but still with that masculine touch. Follow Linda’s easy tutorial to create your own party banner!
