A Card and Gift for Dad!

>> Friday, May 21, 2010

Happy Friday! Hope you're all looking forward to the weekend. I know I am!

I've been busy this week finishing up DT requirements for the last batch of new releases from DRS Designs.  The project I have to share with you today shows off 4 of the new stamps!

This is my Father's Day card and gift for my Dad.  The front of the card was cut on a diagonal and layered so that it formed a pocket.  I stamped the Remote Control Greeting (K288) on the front and embellished it with the King of the Remote Greeting (C290) and ribbon. I colored the crown with yellow Copic Markers and added Yellow Stickles to give it a bit of sparkle!

The above picture shows you where the pocket was created a little bit better, now that The Ultimate Remote (K292) has been removed. I know it's a bit hard to see on these photos, but that remote is hilarious!  Some of the buttons on it read:
Snow Blower
Lawn Mower
Leaf Blower
Now you can see why it is the perfect compliment to the Remote Control Greeting!

I used just a portion of the 10 Mile Father's Day Greeting (G280) to create a frame around the inside of the card.  This left plenty of space for my own personal message.

And finally, the best part of this project--the gift for Dad!  The Ultimate Remote is actually a gift card holder!  What could be a better gift for my Dad on Father's Day then a FREE dinner from his favorite Daughter! *wink!*

Thank for visiting today!


***PS: Don't forget about the Spoon Full of Sugar Blog Challenge that DRS Designs is sponsoring this week.  You have until Monday May 24th to create some that is Cute and Girlie to be entered to win a prize from DRS Designs!

I love this card too Jennifer! The colors are perfect, the design is so unique and the gift card holder is the icing on the cake (or the batteries for the remote, in this case!)
