This card was made for the latest Whimsical Scraps and Bugs challenge. We were issued a Mojo Monday sketch (#88) and asked to make a Father's Day card using masculine paper and a Cricut cut. The patterned paper I used is from Basic Grey--it is actually 2 sided paper-one side with the dots and the other side with the stripes. I embossed the brown cardstock with Cuttlebug's Spots and Dots folder and inked the raised image with Tim Holtz's Distressing Ink. The circle was cut from Plantin Schoolbook, as were the letters and shadows to spell 'Dad' and the bird was cut from 5o states--I believe the cut is Wisconsin's state bird. I cut the little bird at 1 3/4". The ribbon is Offray and I got the spool from WalMart--10 yards for...47 cents! And they carried probably around a half dozen colors. Yes, please!!!
Thanks for looking!
