#1 Dad

 Good Afternoon Everyone, 

Hope you are all okay and having a nice day, so many of my friends and family children are starting back at school, and a lot starting for the first time and moving up to secondary school. So many tears will have been shred these last few hours. 

The card I have for you today is a card I made for a male. I set my self my own challenge and this challenge was to use no stamps. Now for me that is hard as stamping is my go to every time I need to make a card. So to make this one I decided to use my Cricut machine as the main feature of the card. 

I started by picking my colours and decided to go with the orange and brown with a hint of blue. 

I picked an Orange and Brown stripe backing paper and then coordinated it with blue and brown stripe backing paper, this piece I ran through and Argyle embossing folder to give it added texture. 

The Main die cut is backed onto three layers all within the colour of the card and I cut the #1 Dad in brown. 

To finish the card of I added white detail to the die cut, twine down the center of the backing paper and liquid pearls were added to again give dimension to the card.

Here is the card 

 This is the topper
