Blessings to You on Father's Day!

I understand that Father's Day is still a week away.  Did I say a week away? Wow, I need to get busy.  If your stuck and need an idea, then this one might help. However, I must say this is not your standard A2 card.  I had some scraps laying around and used them to make this card.  So make sure you pay close attention to the measurements, if you should decide to make this one.

Card Recipe:

Kraft cardstock - 4 1/4" x 5 3/8"
Brown cardstock - 4" x 5 1/8"
DCWV (Guy Stack) patterned paper - 3 3/4" x 4 7/8"

Cricut Cartridges:

April Showers - Clouds (1" & 3/4") Kraft cardstock
Elegant Edges - Butterfly Oblong (4") page 30; Kraft cardstock
Wildlife - Caribou (4") Brown cardstock 

Green cardstock - 1" x 4"
Cream cardstock - 1/2"
Stamp - Studio 112 from JoAnn's
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Foam tape

Close up of the smaller cloud.  I inked around both clouds with Tim Holtz Distressed Ink Tea Dye.  Wove some Hemp through the green buttons (I won the hemp from DL Art during one of her challenges).  Glued them down with glossy accents.

It's Friday and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

You Are A Classic

As I mentioned the other day, yesterday was my birthday.  It rained of course, but we managed to plan around the weather.  The evening ended with an enjoyable dinner with friends and family.  I would like to thank you all for the blessed birthday wishes.  I hope I didn't forget to leave a comment on anyone's.

Now, for today's post.  Father's Day is just a few weeks away.  So to help you get started, I'm sharing this classic with you all.  If my Dad was still alive I know he would appreciate this card, since he owned a classic (1929 Model A).

Card Recipe:

Brown Cardstock - 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
Patterned Paper - 5 1/4" x 4"

Cricut Cartridge Wrap It Up - Page 42 cut this tag at 1" out of brown cardstock.  Thread cream ribbon through the holes and wrap around the patterned paper.  The Sentimen was computer generated using Times New Roman 18pt for "You are a" and Freestyle Script 28pt for "Classic".  I printed this off on cream cardstock, sized it down to fit inside the brown tag, and adhered it with foam tape.

This classic car was also cut using the same cricut cartridge Wrap it Up.  It is also located on page 42.  I cut it out at 2 1/2" using brown, green and cream cardstock.

For the door, I ran it through my cuttlebug using with swirls folder.  I thought it needed some lift and then I decided to doodle around the same door.  As you can see from the photo above, I decided to do a lot of doodling on the car.  I used my white gel pen since I did not have a cream gel pen.

After assembling the card together, I added clear rhinestones to the wheels just for some extra bling.

Do keep in mind you don't have to give this card to a father for Father's Day.  You can also give it to him for his birthday.

I hope you have enjoyed you weekend.  Thanks again for all the birthday wishes.  You guys are all amazing.  Have wonderful Sunday.
