World's Greatest Dad


Good morning! Here is my design team project for Creative Critterz Imaginations for this week. My dad is a big hiker, so I thought this would be a fun card to make for him for Father's Day. I began by printing the cuts below. The square is 4" and flood-filled with the cloud pattern from Best Friends. The circles are cut at 3.5" and 4", flood-filled with a pattern from Lori's Garden. Finally, my moose hiker (shown already assembled) was cut at 3.5", flood-filled with colors from the Imagine.


This card is A2 size, so I cut my brown cardstock at 4 1/4" x 11" and scored it at 5 1/2". The yellow cardstock is 4" x 5 1/4". To make my little scene, I trimmed the cloud paper to be 3 3/4" in width and adhered it to the yellow cardstock. I then lay my circle hills on top of that and marked with a pencil where I wanted to trim them.


My sentiment is from My Creative Time's "You're My Best Buddy" stamp set. I stamped it onto more of the yellow cardstock, which I cut with a Papertrey Ink die. I used the same stamp set for the inside.

This is awesome. That cloud background is one of my favorites. Your dad is going to LOVE this. I absolutely love when a card is inspired by something that the recipient loves or loves to do. Hugs- Glora
