All about Dad's!

Good Morning!

This is Jen from 3 Cats and a Bug.  This week at Sweetsassydiva's; the theme is All about Dad's!  I can't wait to see what the rest of the design team comes up with, they are so creative!

I decided to make cards for my project.  I have 3 cards that I need to make for my family, including one I made for my Grandson to give to my Son.  I also made some extra's for a friend who asks for cards to sell.  I made two cards that just used stickers for my Husband and Dad, I will add "Happy Father's Day" to the bottom of the cards and give the cards to them while we are out fishing.



I made two different versions of the same cut in different sizes and added a banner to one of them.  I cut one at 4 and the other at 3 from Celebrate With Flourish.  The banner was cut from Carousel at 3.7.  I used pop dots to attach the banner and added some stitching with my white gel pen.  I also used my white gel pen on the lettering.  On some of the cards I added Glossy Accents to the number 1 to make it pop more.  I don't think it added much to it, which is why I didn't add it to all of them.




I made another card using Everyday Pop-Up Cards.  The beer mug was cut at 4 and Cheers! was cut at 1.  I ran the outside of the mug and the "foam" through my big kick with embossing folders.


I'm always happy when I can use up some of my scraps!  (I have 6 drawers full of scrap paper!)  I went through and picked out all my blue scraps of patterned paper and added them to the insides of all the cards and then my computer generated verse on top.


To make it easier on the eyes, the inside verse says:

A Place Just For Dad
We many not shower him with praise
Nor mention his name in song,
And sometimes it seems that we forget
The joy he spreads as he goes along,
But it doesn't mean that we don't know
The wonderful role that he has had.
And away down deep in every heart
There's a place that is just for Dad...

Thanks for looking!
