Father's Day Shaped Card using Cricut Holiday Cakes

Well we have all made it to Saturday! I am so glad the week is over.
Today is my monthly post over at Everyday Cricut so when your through here head on over and see the Father's Day gift ideas--Since Dad's big day is less than a month away, I will be showing Father's Day cards from today through next week.
Today's card is intended to go with the picture frame I made and posted on Everyday Cricut.

This card is from the new Cricut Holiday Cakes Cartridge. I used the base shadow, copied it on my gypsy and welded it to make a top fold shaped card. I cut the outside with all the layers. It was pretty easy to put together as the shapes layer well.

I added a couple of buttons with unique holes for the headlights. On the tires, I used the distressed stripes stamps from Papertrey Ink for the tires and the mini sentiment sets for the Father on the plate!

I used a stamp from Michaels for the inside and left plenty of room to write a note or have everyone sign!

So I have a challenge for you all--to use more than one printed paper on your next card. I love mixing patterns, prints, and levels of color. I use a lot of solid card stock as well but pattern play can be a lot of fun!

Make sure to head over to Everyday Cricut and check out the Father's Day gift ideas! Have a great weekend!

  12. Bryan,

    What a great card!!! :) You're right about mixing patterns of paper-I am always amazed at how you put yours together. They look fantastic & I find myself thinking that I wouldn't have thought to put those same ones together.

    You're making it hard to live without the Gypsy (and Christmas is a long time away)!

    Enjoy the rest of the weekend,

    Jennifer

  20. Don't you just love it when you have something like the buttons that look like they were designed especially for your project! It looks like they were part of a preassembled kit. Great work!
