I picked 3 coordinating colors from Stampin' Up and sponged them on. The stamp is from SU's Lovely as a Tree stamp set. I used an aluminum can and punched it with SU's Modern Label punch. Added some brads and put Stampin' Dimensionals on the back. He thought it was great!
Next I made some Father's Day cards for my dad and father-in-law.
Yes they're pretty much the same.
To begin, I didn't get pictures of the first part. I had my husband help me. I cut open an aluminum can and had my husband measure and cut it for me with scissors. While he was doing that I measured the rest of the paper and got it ready. When he was done I put each piece in an embossing folder and ran it through. I glued it down where I wanted and then glued the paper pieces down. Since it's hard to cut them straight I overlapped the top and bottom with the paper instead of the other way. Next I used the Cricut and using the Crikits pens for the words, using the metallic grays. Then I picked out the cutout and frame and marked the center point and for the square cutout. Using the same paper I also cut out the frame ¼" larger than the square (not real dial size). I then used Sahara Sand ink pad from Stampin' up and placed the frame face down on the pad.
Using a stylus I pushed the frame into the ink.
If you like you don't have to do the whole thing, but that's what I wanted to do.
Next I took the square with "Happy Father's Day."
BeforeAnd sponged the sides with the same color of ink.
AfterThen I glued the square on top of the frame, if you prefer you can glue the frame on top. I punched holes on the sides and inserted brads and added Stampin' Dimensionals to the back.
And placed it on the card.
Hope you enjoy! Thanks for visiting!
