Sunny Challenges meets Dapper Dad

June 16, 2013

I created this card for my class at Beachmere and realised that it fits the current Sunny Challenge perfectly, so perhaps I can inspire a few more of you to enter the challenge this week.

016I embossed Very Vanilla card using the Houndstooth Embossing Folder.    I attached a piece of Parkers Patterns Designer Series Paper to Not Quite Navy card and attached it to the left hand side of the embossed Very Vanilla card. I pierced three holes in the Very Vanilla card, added Crumb Cake Brads before attaching it to scored and folded Early Expresso card.  I stamped the watch from the Dapper Dad stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Cajun Craze ink and cut it out using the second smallest Oval Framelits Die.  I cut Cajun Craze card using the next largest Oval Framelits Die and pierced a row of holes around the edge.  I attached the image oval to the Cajun Craze oval and then to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside I stamped “happy Father’s day” from the Delightful Dozen stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Not Quite Navy ink. 018 I punched one long edge of a narrow strip of Not Quite Navy card using the Scallop Border Punch and attached it behind a strip of Parkers Patterns Designer Series Paper.  I attached the designer series paper strip to the bottom edge of the Very Vanilla card before attaching it to the inside of the card.

I am pretty chuffed at how cute this card is.  Maybe  it will be the one I give to my Dad on Father’s Day.

Don’t forget to visit Sunny Challenges and add your card to Mr. Linky once you have completed it.  You still have plenty of time to play along.

Bye for now, Kris.
