Dad You Rock...

I created this card for two reasons... one was for a challenge by Provo Craft, hosted on The Pink Stamper's blog, and two is so my son has a handmade card to give his Daddy-o for Father's Day.

I used my Cricut to cut the guitar (Indie Art cartridge), and Dad (Base Camp cartridge).  I love that guitar!  ;)

I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the foil paper with my Diamond Plate embossing folder.  I really wish CTMH didn't discontinue the foil paper.  It is way thicker than heavy duty tin foil and it holds shapes very well.  I've been kinda hoarding what stash I have left.   ;)    I just really like the masculine feel of it when paired with that embossing folder.  (Does anyone know of any other foil paper line that I don't know about?)

I also did a little stamping with my You Rock stamp set.

Keeping my fingers crossed that picks my number!  lol

Happy creating!  :)

Paper:  White Daisy, Black, Cranberry cardstock (CTMH)

Other:  Black brads, Clear Detail embossing powder, Craft Heater, Paper piercer, 3D foam tape (CTMH)

It's a WONDERFUL card - I was going to comment on the foil - it's just OUTSTANDING! I can see why you're hoarding it.

Hey, Vicki! I see you're hooked up on my blog - great to have you! You know, I work at Archiver's now, and the favorite metal for embossing are the QuiKutz metal sheets. They come in a package of 12 - 4"x12" sheets and are our $4.99 at our store. They work great in embossing folders, are sandable, and it is self-adhesive. Thought that might help! I agree - the CTMH sheets were nice and thick.
