(On Papa's Team Card)
I made this card for my little cub to give to my Dad for Grandparents Days (Sept. 12) and it's pretty basic. I took a 4.25 x 5.5 white solid card base, then matted it with another white solid and then matted it again with another white solid but embossed it with small dots. I then used a blue/white patterned paper and die cut clouds from my Silhouette SD. I inked them in blue and then glued 2 of them down but then popped up the 3rd one with foam tape. I then took a small piece of brown burlap and cut it into 2 hill shapes - I didn't do a perfect cut or even try for one because I wanted it to look a little rugged, I adhered it with Scrappy Glue. I then took an orange patterned piece and cut out a Dump Truck with the Silhouette and added some black tires, I used foam tape again to pop it up. I added Diamond Glaze to the dump truck to give it more dimension. I then tied a thin piece of green/white ribbon around the bottom and tied a simple knot. I cut "PAPA" from QK Chicken Noodle and adhered it to the top of the card. The inside reads "Thanks for picking me for your team", which is a saying that my Dad always uses with his grandchildren "You're on Papa's team, huh, Buddy?". It's a very simple and easy card, you could change it around and instead of doing a dump truck, do flowers or a basket of apples depending on your theme!
Happy Sunday! I'm off to Collective Journey's today to teach the Lazy Days of Summer Mini-Album!
