3 Outdoorsy Card Ideas for Dads and Grads {New Release from Impression Obsession!}

Today's cards feature a super cool new die from Impression Obsession, called Off Road Die. It's perfect for our theme day on the IO blog - the great outdoors! If you know someone who loves to be out exploring and adventuring outside, then today's cards are probably perfect for that person. (And if they drive a Jeep, then they'll DEFINITELY need a handmade card made with today's crafty goods.)

How cool is this die?! I love the bold lines and circle format, and the play of positive and negative space. For today's first card, I did some simple paper-piecing. To create this look, die cut the Jeep from three shades of blue and pop the pieces into the outline. (Using that tan die-cut circle as my base made it easier to glue this together. 
My dad drives a yellow Jeep, so this was his Father's Day card this year. Perfect, right!? It's simple and striking to just die cut from black cardstock and adhere to a yellow (or any bright color) background. The stitched edges on my yellow circle are the perfect finishing touch. 
Along with this new die, you'll also find a great coordinating stamp set, called Outdoor Adventures. On this card, I used just the stamp set to create a simple encouraging graduation card.

I like all of these! My husband drove a Jeep for years, so I did, too, by extension. I loved our old woodie, and it took us anywhere we wanted to go. Good memories to have, revived by this card. Thanks!
