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.
