#1 Dad

I have a bunch and I mean a bunch of masculine cards
I created for Tutti Designs.

This one is a bit of fun for a #1 Dad.


When I first received this die I thought
'now what am going to do with shoes?"...lol
I actually made 3 cards with this die and love each and every one
(I will show the other 2 later down the road so to speak).

I used a star embossing folder for the background
and added some red and white twine, and a star charm.

I used Tutti Designs Fancy Shoe,
cutting it twice once in the blue and a second in red for a bit of shadow underneath....
kind of looks like some 'real' shoes I have seen!

I added a punched red circle and a star on that with the sentiment.
This card would work just as well as a birthday card!
Kind of fitting as today would of been my Dad's 94th birthday had he lived.

Entering the following challenges:
Dragonfly Journeys .... Red~White~and Blue-tiful
Cards 4 Guyz .... Stars
Little Red Wagon ....Love You To The Stars and Back

I've been enjoying all your fabulous masculine cards the past few weeks, Diane. They are all so unique and innovative, like this one! Love the star theme, with the sentiment inside the big star, and the RWB theme. Beautifully done! hugs, de

You sure had all the right stuff for this one! Genius the way you offset the shoe die layers to add that bit of red, and gosh, am I ever a sucker for embossing. Love this!

That is an awesome way to use that wonderful shoe die. So unique. I love the way you have incorporated stars in several ways on this card, and the color palette is so patriotic. All the little touches just make this card perfect!!!

I love the way you have offset the die cuts, it makes the shoes look really 3-D
Thanks for sharing at Cardz 4 Guyz

Oh this is darling! I spied it over on the dragonfly blog and had to come take a closer peek :) It's so sweet reminds me of my daughter's dancing on their dad's shoes!
