Card Creating Tuesday at MCCR

Card Creating Tuesday at My Cricut Craftroom

Today is Card creating Tuesday at My Cricut Craft Room and todays' sketch card to follow is below. I chose to do this sketch as a reminder of my dad, who I lost 30 years ago and he was the best dad.!

He was not a cowboy, but he played in a local band, and the music was Country and western, and so i decided to just change the cards a little and instead of using a dress shirt, I used the cuts from the Paper Doll Dress  Up cartridge.  

I decided to make my card a 6x6 because I just got some envelopes for that size.
I used some paper that I got from a kit to make Army Scrap book pages, one of them had like a worn blue jean look to it, it was perfect, I just sanded the edges and the pockets. 
     I cut all the pieces to fit a 5 inch paperdoll.  I made him a hat and a lasso of course:) I faux stitched the neckerchief and hat.  I used Close To My Heart white card stock, DCWV card stock from the All About Boys stack, and some cocoa and yellow [a[er from my scraps.  I   used my atg gun to adhere the papers as well as the Zig pen.  For the shirt buttons and the embellishing I used BO Bunny gems.

      For the "Best Dad"  I used the Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake cartridge. I cut the words and the shadow at 1.25 inches.  It seemed to be lacking something so I hi lighted with a little Stickles.  Voila///add a few pop dots and also some Tim Holtz walnut distress ink, and done.

Now you have two more stops. Head over to Erica's store here. She has great deals and keeps adding products. You will find something you have to have at a great price. When you are done shopping there, head over to her blog here to check out what the rest of the design 
team made to share.
  Have a great day and happy crafting:)   Cathy
