Something for Dad!

It's always so difficult to come up with masculine cards. Today while I had a few gals over here stamping one of them was using the Stampin' Up! "And Many Mower" set. She had stamped the golfer guy image. He's SO cute. Though I am not one who really cares much for puns this particular image didn't have any words on it. Anyway, she (Kay - you know how I HATE to mention names on my blog LOL) had stamped the image and was coloring it and asked what to do about the golf ball. One of the other gals (Colleen) told her to run a piece of white though the Dotted Swiss folder and punch it out for the ball. Kay ended up using a small pompom left over from the Easter rabbits tails!!! It was the perfect size for the image. And had she used the Cuttlebug folder she would have found out the golf ball would only have one dimple in it at most!!!

SO I thought I would play with the set too. I stamped the cute guy image and I did not add the pompom. Mostly because I forgot about it!!! I can always add it later if I feel it needs it. I then took Colleen's idea and ran a piece of white card stock through the Dotted Swiss folder. I cut out a 3-1/4" diameter circle and stamped the "Dear Dad" image on. I did have to take a marker and fill in where the dots were punched so the words didn't look like they had holes in them. I also had used the back side of the paper, the smooth side. I think I was lucky that the thin "dear" word didn't hit a dot!!! If I make any more I would stamp the words first and then run it through the Cuttlebug folder.

The background of the Handsome Hunter card stock was run through the Cuttlebug too using a "Tartan" or diamond type image. I don't know what it's called. Provo Craft didn't write the names of them on the folders. But this image seemed to fit the design theme of the card.

All in all it was a simple card to make too. The coloring was done using a blender pen which usually goes pretty fast. The edge of the image was sponged using Handsome Hunter and the Ticket punch was used on the corners. The brown is Close to Cocoa which seemed to go so well with the green.

I was actually pleased with the card if I must say so myself!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
