Just Add Ink 231

Hello there,
well despite Father's Day here in down under being last Sunday I have two more Father's Day cards for you this week - it's a two for one day today - lol! As it just happens the new Just Add Ink challenge this week is a Just Add a Colour Combo challenge and the colours were just what I needed for both cards. Here's the combo provided by Mae this week.

This first one was for my DH, you can probably guess it does something special (I always make either his Father's day card or birthday card - both in the same month (groan) interactive). It's a slider (or surprise pop up card). You can find a tutorial on the Splitcoast Stampers site here.

Starting to open up.
A little bit more.
Open all the way from the side.
And finally the inside.

And here's the one I made for my FIL. No interactive elements in this one but my FIL assured me he loved it.

I was wracking my brains trying to think of some way to finish off the bottom of the front panel when using the fringe scissor occurred to me - very pleased it did as I think it works great!

So there you go - two guy cards from the same colour combo - Fathers Day mission accomplished - on schedule - phewww!

Hope you join us for this great colour challenge. Do check out the rest of the DT for lots of fabulous colour inspiration.
