for Dad


I made this card with 2 challenges in mind. The CAS-ual Fridays CFC91 is "Hi-Ho Silver" - to use silver on your card. It's also for the Addicted to CAS #7 challenge "It's raining men" - to make a masculine card.
I used the SB  sprockets die for the circle, along with the SU! Hearts a Flutter flag dies and coordinating stamps, and embossed everything in silver. A touch of black with turquoise, and 4 silver brads was all this card needed. The "dad" was done with those old wooden stick stamps that I've had forever. I've done several of these cards in different colors, but I liked this silver one the best!





Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a fabulous day!

Wow! Carol, this is awesome for a masculine card. I love that sprocket die. Raining men? Ha

This looks as if it may fit the CASology challenge for circles this week.

When I first saw your card I was like "OOhhh, I love this!" lol The gear looks so cool and I love the silver embossing! And I love, love, love that you didn't do a thing to the card base and just left it plain and simple. Thanks for playing at ATCAS this week! Love it!
