Can you believe how fast time goes by? We're already 6 days into the month and Father's Day is only TWO weeks away! TWO weeks! Time to start making cards & special gifts for all the DAD'S in the family. And that's what this week's FCCB Challenge Me Mondays #63 is about - #1 DAD. Let's show DAD he's #1 by making a project just for him - make sure to include at least ONE Cricut Cut.
Whimsie Doodles' owner, Melyssa, generously supplied the design team with images to work with and a $10 Gift Certificate to the Whimsie Doodles online store for the participants. Please check out FCCB's Challenge Me Monday #63 post for all the details.
For my #1 DAD card, I went with Whimsie Doodles' recently released 'Dad's Sippy Cup' image. This is such a true image - what man doesn't like a mug of beer?
I colored in the beer and badge with my PrismaColor Pencils. I then Paper-Pieced the title with some Jillibean Soup 'Chopped Tomatoes' Paper. The mug has a slight touch of Glossy Accents to give it the 'Frosted Mug' look. And I used my Liquid Applique to give the beer some 'foam'.
I also paper-pieced the banner and pop-up with some of my homemade deminsionals.
I used Cricut Design Studio and Plantin Schoolbook to create a frame that resembles one that could be found in the Elegant Edges cartridge - I really have to get that cart.
And no card would be complete without a matching inside.
Now, its YOUR TURN! Create a special project to show DAD how special he is. And be sure to check out the rest of the Fantabulous DT creations. Don't forget to link up your #1 DAD project by Sunday, June 12th at 11:59pm EST for your chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to Whimsie Doodles.
