It's Your Day!

Hi all my crafty friends, Brenda here from Friends Craftin with Friends.  This week at Sweet Sassy Diva we were ask to make anything with fathers in mind.  So I made a Father's day card for my DS to give to his dad.  The other 5 boys will have to come up with their own card. lol  Ok first off I grabbed my Gypsy girl and over at She's a Sassy Lady, Sheila has a great video tutorial on how to make tri fold cards like on Just A Note that came pre-installed on the E2. Go over to Sheila's blog and watch the tutorial, it is 4 videos because she walks you through it step by step!!  So I made my base using George and Basic Shapes and then welded my die cuts that I wanted to use.  Here are what my card layout and layers look like on my Gypsy girl.

I proceeded to cut out my base and score it.  Here I had a little boo boo, but I am still going to use the card.  I didn't have it on the mat correctly and lost part of the end of the card.  Oh well, I wasn't going to trash it, but just make the best out of it.  Here is what it looks like.

Next I cut all my layers out and assembled them.  Then attached them to my card base.  Here is the beer mug with the foam.  I used Smiley Cards for this die.  I wanted a little dimension to the foam so I used liquid pearls on the foam and for the "sweat" on the mug I used glossy accents. This is the side of my card that is messed up.  I should have a rounded edge on the left side but I don't.  But like I said I am making it work anyway. DH won't even notice.

I cut It's Your Day from Wild Cards and Dad came from Beyond Birthdays.

The banner came from Just A Note that is on the E2 machine. My stamped sentiment is from Paper Trey Ink.  The twine is from The Twinery and my base papers came from DCWV The Guy stack.

Well I hope you liked my card and will be inspired to make the man in your life a sweet card!
