Today's my dad's birthday!! I thought I'd share the card I made him.
I have to give a shout-out to Lori at livingorganized chaos.blogspot.com for posting her project for the PERFECT "guy" card. This card was perfect for what I was looking for to make for my dad for his birthday. I used the toolbelt Design Studio file, which can be found here. Thanks Ruelysi!!
My dad LOVES to tinker with tools and build and renovate things. He's definitely a "Jack of All Trades". He was missing for so much of my life and I feel so blessed to have him in my life now. I wanted to let him know by putting my heart into a special birthday card for him.
In addition to the cut file, I used the Learning Curve cartridge for the letters on the tape measure. I used the Doodletype cartridge for the "Happy Birthday" on the middle section. The Handyman Lite cartridge was used for the level in the pocket. I believe it was cut at 4.5", and I cut all relevant layers. The pockets of the tool belt had some faux-stitching that I added with my gel pen.
The entire cut was made at 11.5" wide and I scored it to fold in three sections, 3.5", 4", and 3.5".
The cute little screw-head brads are from Making Memories and I got them in the clearance bin of Michael's, if you can believe it!
Most of the paper is Bazzill Basics. However, I ran out of plain silver, so I used aluminum tape (found reasonably priced at most hardware stores) and stuck it down on paper to cover it and then ran it through my Cricut. I think it gave a great "metal" look.
Happy Birthday, Dad!! xoxox
