Tomorrow (Sunday 7th September) is Father’s Day in Australia and I wanted to take the opportunity to tell my Dad how much I truly love and appreciate him. I am incredibly blessed to have such a huge-hearted, giving, intelligent, humorous and generally all-round awesome Dad!
In honour of my Dad I wanted to make a card that was a little different from the style of cards I usually make. I have been building up a lovely collection of designs from the Silhouette store to use with my cameo. Despite this collection I rarely use it. The reason for this lack of use is simply that I don’t have room on my table for it so it is a bit awkward to use. I decided this has to change and when I saw the Workshop Bench pop up card I knew it would make the cutest Father’s Day card.
I stayed pretty true to the example used in the store, just because it worked exactly as it was. I did add a bit of wood grain stamping onto the workbench, and added some shading here and there to make it look a little more dimensional, and popped up the cork board and the level on the bench. Loved how it turned out.
Here it is…
After completing the inside of the card I thought it needed something on the outside but I wasn’t sure what. I didn’t want any design to detract from the inside. I searched in the store for a “Father’s Day” sentiment and when I saw the “Happy Father’s Day Title”, I knew it would look perfect – and it does. lol
Here’s the outside of the card…
Loved how simple it was to create and how good it looks. And now I am determined to make more use of my Silhouette Cameo!
Hope you are all having a great weekend!
