I made another Father's Day card for my husband. This time, I had a bit of help from my middle guy too. I was helping him study for a test and he helped me with the card. It made things much more enjoyable both ways round! Bonne chance avec ton test de français Jack!
For this card, I followed a sketch designed by Corinne at Craft Your Passion. This is the second time I've created a card following a sketch. I need to do it more often as it really does seem to help everything come together quickly. One corner was supposed to be folded up. I tried it, but didn't like the look on my card as my paper is not double-sided.
The patterned paper is from DCWV's Spring Stack and all the cardstock pieces are just bits from my scrap collection. I used Mickey Font for DAD, Animal Kingdom for the lion, and George and Basic Shapes for the circle which I then embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. I used my paper cutter for the square and rectangle after checking out the sizes on the Design Studio template I had set up. The "king of our jungle" sentiment is computer-generated. I added some ribbon and a "celebrate" brad - and had a card! DAD, the top layer of the lion, and the sentiment are popped.
I will submit this card at this week's Craft Your Passion challenge, at Cricut Cardz for their challenge #27 - Make a Father's Day card using any cartridges or colours desired, and at Cute Card Thursday where we were challenged to use blue, orange and black. The blue and orange are the main focus of my card and the lion's eyes are black. I am also submitting it at Cuttlebug Blog for their Father's Day Challenge.
