Awesome DAD - stylised vintage gent 6" square white card
Day 134 of my 366 day challenge


Hi Craft addicts!

So today's project is a 6" square card that could be used for a DAD's birthday, Father's Day or just to say how great he is!

Awesome DAD - stylised vintage gent 6" square white card
I used my Brother Scan n Cut (along with CANVAS) to cut out nearly all of the items that I used to make this card (the only exception is the "Awesome" sentiment that I cut out using a Tonic Studio sentiment die.

I must admit that I spent quite some time working out which items would look best for this card and I ultimately chose a rounded edged square, the "Moustache" and "Spectacles" and "DAD" and resized them all in CANVAS - the former measures 4" approximately which i cut out in grey cardstock, the glasses and moustache in white (they measure 3" & 2.5" respectively)  and the "DAD" lettering in black cardstock (measuring about 1.5" each).

I first of all placed some of the widest red ultra strong red liner tape in the centre of the card and foiled it with silver. I then repeated the process with a narrow strip of the tape and some red foil.

I embossed the grey square panel using an Xcut embossing folder (small dots) and glued it onto the card on the left hand side. Using Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue, I glued the glasses and moustache onto it and added some small black oval pieces in the glasses to look like eyes and some Clear Nuvo Crystal drops (from Tonic  Studios). The "DAD" word comes in two parts, so I cut them into separate letters and placed them randomly on the right hand side of the card.

To finish off the card, i glued the "Awesome" sentiment on to a narrow deckle edged strip of black card and added it using foam pad strips to the bottom of the card.
