(Warning: If you are my husband, stop reading this post NOW. You can come back after June 20.)
I rediscovered this great paper with ties in a stack I purchased a few years back. As soon as I found it, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. This card came out just as I wanted.
The dog is cut from Everyday Paper Dolls and the top hat from Paper Doll Dress Up. I used Opposites Attract for the letters. I made the frame using George and Basic Shapes. The silhouette rectangle was a bit wider than I wanted so I simply inserted one rectangle inside another using Design Studio and adjusted them until I was content with the width. I cut the images for this card twice. I inked everything and used a Cuttlebug embossing folder around the frame. I had hidden the contours of the dog's eyes before cutting, and then used two black gems to create eyes for the top layer. I used a marker to draw around the partial cuts in the dog, and used the same colour to fill in his nose. I used a border punch on the polka-dot paper. The tie paper and polka-dot paper are flush against the card, but everything else was attached with PopDots. Those letters were tricky, but I'm glad I popped them!
I made this card for my husband. I don't have a father myself, but always make Father's Day cards for my children to give my husband. I like to make him a card from me as well. He's a Super Dad and I love to let him know that!
I'm submitting this card for the challenge at My Pink Stamper. One lucky crafter will be chosen to win an Expression!
