Father's Day Card

There's a Father's Day theme at both My Craft Spot and Fantabulous Cricut this week.  As I don't have a father, I made this card for my children to give my husband.

I used Campin' Critters for the card base and the deer.  The grass is from Zooballoo and the sign is from Freshly Picked.  I've had Freshly Picked for about 18 months and only JUST took it out of the packaging last week.  It's one of those cartridges that I purchased as it was a good deal but didn't really have a use for it.  Oh well!  It worked perfectly for the sign on this card.  I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the sign and grass. 

The sentiment on the sign is from My Craft Spot's Build a Valentine set and the DAD border is from My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags.  I also added a bit of vintage baker's twine (also from My Craft Spot) for the fish line.  I finished things off with some inking, brads, doodling and fun googly eyes. 

Please head over to My Craft Spot and Fantabulous Cricut to check out the rest of the amazing projects, get more details on these challenges, and then link up a project of your own!

Great card. I am not close to my dad, so I enjoy making cards for my hubby. (I think he likes them.) I was admiring the Dad going around the edges...neat look. Hope you will stop by when you get a chance.

Stay Creative,

Oh my...so many fun details on your card Kate! I am loving the shape you created and the way you stamped Dad around the edges...too cute! One thing that caught my eye right away is the fun plaid paper on the fish, I love that bright little touch! I lost my Daddy 5 years ago and it still hurts like yesterday, but I do love making things for my sweet hubby!
