Die Cuttin' Divas Father's Day Challenge


Well, June just seems to be flying by! We are already in the middle of the month, I feel like I need to catch my breath.

This weekend we are honoring our Fathers and thanking them for everything they do for their families. It's time to give Dad a big pat on the back and a day that revolves around him.

We have a new challenge for you to try over at  Die Cuttin' Divas .

This week it is Father's Day/Masculine.

I decided to go a little retro with my card. I took a file called RETRO CASSETTE TAPE
by Sarah Hurley
Design ID #28563 and I used the weld feature in the design program to make this file into a card by welding a rectangle for the back flap.









the sentiment was created using two stamps sets by Paper Smooches - Daddy Yo and Sentiment Sampler.









Supplies used: card stock -black, white, 2 shades of grey, orange; stamps - Daddy Yo and Sentiment Sampler by Paper Smooches; ink - Jet Black Archival; Silhouette Studio cut file




Now pop on over to Die Cuttin' Divas and see all the fabulous inspiration the rest of the design team has come up with.

Supplies used: card stock - white, yellow, vanilla, 2 shades of red, green; patterned papers by October Afternoon and Alegra Creatives; die - Simon Says Stamp; stamp - Whimsical Designs.
