My Guy

Happy Friday everyone!  Since this Sunday is Father's Day here in the U.S., the gals at Stuck On U Sketches decided that it would be a good time to place a little emphasis on good old Dad.  Thus, our die cut challenge this week is "All About Fathers!"  Instead of showing you the cards I made for my dad and my father-in-law (those will come later), I am featuring my hubby's card.  He is my Mr.-Fix-It for sure.  He's a great handyman and can figure out how to fix most anything.  And he's a great father.  He loves our daughters and grandchildren so much.  What a blessing.  Come join us in the challenge!

Here are the details of the card:

Size:  A2
Card Stock:  Recollections, Bazzill, Core'dinations, Die Cuts With A View
I made the wrench, which was patterned after a few punch art cards I found on Pinterest, using three punches: Word Window Stampin' Up and a circle punch for one end, and a scalloped circle and circle punch for the other end.
I embossed the shimmery DCWV paper with a manly Cuttlebug embossing folder.
I added a circle shaped Nestabilities die and added a scalloped octagon shaped Nestabilities die behind it.
On top of that, I cut the phrase "My Guy" using the Father's Day Cricut solutions cartridge (cut at 2 1/2").
I then added some punched stars and my computer generated sentiment, which was cut using a Spellbinders tag die and used with a simple piece of black satin ribbon.
I think that's about it!

I hope you are inspired.  Thanks for your kind words.  Have a blessed, crafty day!
