#1 Dad

Today is reveal time at The Cuttlebug Spot!!! Our challenge this week was in honor of Father's everywhere!!! I have to admit - this is not one of my favorite cards because I was totally out of my box (I don't do masculine real well) but I do like it. I just think I need to tweak it a bit but overall it is a nice Father's Day card.

I used my Cuttlebug Embossing folder Traffic Jam to emboss a piece of clear craft plastic. I then used my Scor Pal to create a crease so I could attached the clear craft plastic onto a card back. For the layout of the card I used a sketch at Friday Sketchers. Snoopy is a Stampabilities stamp and on the inside, which I didn't take a picture of like a dork, is a stamped image by Stampendous (if I remember right) that says #1 Dad (it is behind the snoopy) and I left the white side blank so I could write on it.

Here's my card:


Again, I'm not totally on board with this one but it isn't horrible - at least I don't think it is!!! LOL

Thanks for stoppin' by and come on over to The Cuttlebug Spot and play along with us!!!

Happy Scrappin'!!!

Girl, that is just awesome! It is very good. Masculine is hard for me too. I haven't made very many masculine cards at all. I haven't made my Fathers' Day cards yet because that looks is so hard for me to accomplish. Thanks for the inspiration.

Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
