This week At The Cuttlebug Spot we were asked to do a Father's Day card. Bummer! I had done one for the color challenge a few week's back and was plumb out of ideas. In fact I'd done quite a few Father's Day cards and I REALLY REALLY was out of ideas. Then WOOHOO! I came across this fun shirt and tie downloadable template from The Cutting Cafe. Problem solved. So easy and quick. Of course I added quite a bit of Cuttlebug texture. Houndstooth on the collar and pocket, Argyle on the tie and Distressed Stripes to the shirt itself. (Thought it would make it look like seersucker but decided it just looked like a poor ironing job so I flattened that a bit. LOL)
I cut the circle sentiment out with my Nesties (also a part of the downloadable design and there's a birthday sentiment too) and added my own little touch by cutting a tie bar out of foil card stock with my Spellbinders Shapeabilities Charms and Rod die (it's the rod trimmed down a bit) and a couple of collar buttons. I really think it turned out cute so if you're still hunting for Father's Day ideas you should rush right over to The Cutting Cafe. There's also a darling tie shaped card and envelopes for both as part of the set and because they're downloadable you don't have to wait for any shipping. Father's Day solutions just a few clicks away, printable as templates or for you lucky SCAL or Pazzles users you can let your machine do the work for you.
