Father's Day Blog Hop

Hello crafting friends. I'm so excited to be a part of the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog Hop to celebrate Father's Day. I always have the darnest time coming up with masculine cards and since Father's Day is always a day or two away from my husband's birthday, it's like a double whammy for me :-)
Well, if you have problems like me, then this blog hop is especially for you as we take you along a variety of masculine projects just in time for Father's Day!

I used the Desert - Off-Roading svg file from Simply Crafty SVGs and created this box card.

I love the way it came out. I just love box cards :-)

Although they have loads of dimension, they're totally mail friendly as they fold flat and fit perfectly in an envelope. My card size fits into an A7 envelope.

This cut file has a back included for your stamped greeting and personal message.

One of the awesome things I love about using SVGs is that you can play with them and create the same thing but in a totally different way.  Using the same cut file as above, I've created sand dunes this time for my Off-Roading fun. By adding a few elements purchased from the Silhouette store and a few die cuts, I've created a beach scene. This brings back so many wonderful memories. I learnt how to drive on one of these!😁
