#1 Dad in America Card Idea Cottage Cutz Patriotic Dies Release Ideas

Happy Saturday crafty friends!
Melinda here and today I am sharing a fun Father's Day card I created with dies from the new Cottage Cutz Patrioric die release. Here it is.

To create my card, I started by die cutting all my pieces out of plain white cardstock. I then started coloring, inkin and sponging my die cuts to give them color and dimension. Here I am sponging the United States Die cut image.

After coloring in my die cut pieces, I began to assemble them.

Here's a look at the rainbow die cut. I colored it in grays and blues and then used a piece of cardstock to back it so I could use some foam tape to give it a bit of lift.

Here is the cute Eagle die cut. Instead of the hat with a patriotic look, I used only the base and colored to give my eagle a "top hat" with a blue sash.

Here is a close up of the America letters. I used my spectrum noir sparkle pen to give the letters a subtle but effective touch of sparkle. I didn't want too much glitter as this is a "masculine" card and my hubby isn't a huge glitter fan...lol!

For the sentiment, I simply type set it and printed it out. I added 3 small diamond dots to give it just a bit of subtle bling. Here too you can see that I inked the edge of my blue cardstock mat.

Here is one last look at my finished card. I love using dies in different ways. It gives your stash some much more use! Head over to CottageCutz.com and pick up this collection today! 

Until the next time, have a wonderfully crafty day!
