Good evening
Well the Cuttlebugspot is back after a well earned rest and Nilda asked us to use Dad's and Grad's for our theme this week. I chose to go with Dad's as Fathers day will soon be here 20th June so I made this card for my dad.
My card is very simple in white and blue. The base card in white is A5 in size (8 1/2x11" folded in half). The frame is from Life Is A Beach Cricut cart and is the yacht frame which also cuts a yacht to layer over the yacht in the corner of the frame. I cut it twice as I wanted to layer two yachts for extra dimension. Theseagulls are cut from the same cartridge and the sun is from Accent Essentials cart. The blue backing paper is DCWV and I embossed the frame with a Cuttlebug folder from an Oh My Crafts exlusive set called Shapes. The sun is embossed with a quickutz folder and finally a computer generated font.
I hope you will visit the Cuttlebugspot and see the fabulous cards the rest of the DT have created this week and of course we would love to see your dad or grad creations and for the winner this week there is a fab prize, a $20 gift certificate from Custom Crops!
Thanks for looking
