You Da Man Card


Hello crafty friends,
Hope your Tuesday is shaping up to be a terrific one! Today I am sharing a card I created for Father’s Day. I used some of the paper from last month’s Close To My Heart Promotion along with some cuts from the Cricut Artbooking Cartridge and matching stamps.

Here’s a look at my card. The Red arrow, this week and blue label arrow stamps are all from the My Life Artbooking Bundle stamp set. The You Da Man letters are from the Hopscotch Alphabet stamp set. I stamped the letters with my Olive Stamp PadThe red arrow was stamped with my Cranberry Ink Pad. The Blue Arrow label was stamped with my Crystal Blue Stamp pad and the the this week was stamped with my olive ink pad as well.

This shows how I used some foam tape to give some of the elements a little lift. The frame is one of the chipboard elements in the Artbooking bundle. Love these elements, they have matching cuts on the cartridge which makes covering them with patterned paper a snap.

Here is a closer look at the “metal” embellishments I used. I must admit, when I saw these in the catalog, I wasn’t impressed, but when I got some to use, I was pleasantly surprised at how well I really liked them. I finished off the card by using a sharpie marker to do some faux stitching around the white mat.
