One-Layer Wednesday #90: Dudes Rule

This week's OLW is to make a one-layer card for a man in your life. Of course it could be a Father's Day card, but really, whatever theme you choose, you just need to make it for a guy.

My card is for my hubs for Father's Day. He served 20 years in the Air Force (thus the military theme) and retired because he didn't want to deploy for year away from his sons, especially the one with autism. He'd already deployed several times and just couldn't bear to miss more of their childhoods. Walking away from a career he loved for his sons...he's my hero. And that's why I stamped "you're my hero" inside this!

OLW90 Rules

1. A one-layer card is defined as a single layer of card stock folded in half. No other layers allowed.

2. Make a card for a man...and tell us who it is! Please keep embellishments to a minimum.

3. Post your card somewhere online and link to it using the InLinkz button on the sidebar. If you post on your blog, please link to the individual post, not to the main page of your blog.

4. The most important rule of all is TO HAVE FUN!!!!!

stamps: Hero Arts (sentiment), StampinUp (stars)
ink: Memento
paper: PTI natural
accessories: none


  1. Your boys and you are very lucky to have such a caring, loving and thoughtful father and husband. My husband gave up a very lucrative job (endless travel) to watch our daughter grow up. Gotta love these guys.

  2. Lovely card, and a lovely story to go with it :) I'm sure being with his family is every inch as fulfilling as his career was, albeit in a different way! M x

  3. Susan, Love the military theme! Your husband sounds like a gem!
