May's Sincerely Focuses on Father's Day Cards

We know that Mother's Day just ended, but we thought we'd go ahead and focus on Father's Day cards for our Sincerely segment this month. It will be here before you know it! 

These two adorable cards were designed by Gail Owens....aren't they cute?!! 

You're a Rock Star! Templates used- Sentiments 2B & 3A, Tiny Wacky 3T, Adventure 1 & 2 and Tiny Strips Authentique Gathering paper kit; kraft paper card base; ink; jewels (Doodlebug); letter stickers (SEI and Authentique) Finished card size: 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 

Gail left the tips of the star hanging over the edges of the card, but you can cut them off so it fits in an envelope. My "Rock Star" is handwritten, but you can get the same effect by using a stamp or stickers.

This card was also designed by Gail Owens! Be sure to check out her blog to see the details of how she made the tie.

 Shirt and Tie: Templates used- Tiny Tags 5T (pocket), Tiny Shapes 6T (tie and collar) and Celebrate 6 (tie) Authentique Gathering paper kit; white card stock; brown card stock; ink; buttons Finished card size: 5x7 

Gail has a tutorial on her blog with the full instructions (it's easier to explain with step by step pics!)
