Jump start on Father's Day

Hi Everyone,

Michelle here from Lady of Leisure Ink - thank you Pam for letting me come and play in your 'space'.  My project today was done to help me get a jump start on Father's Day, but could just as well be used for any occasion for one of the guys.


This project is cut with my Silhouette Cameo, and is from an SVG kit called "All About Dad" available from SVG Cuts.  The designer of these files gives great instructions for putting these projects together - they really were easy peasy :)


I love 'shaped' cards, and as soon as I got this file knew I had to make this card.  One of the things I did to this file was run the vest through my Sizzix machine with an embossing folder.  This folder is made by Stampin' Up and is called 'Square Lattice'.  This is where I had a 'happy accident' - I didn't put the vest all the way into the folder and so the bottom piece did not get embossed.  So I decided to use my scoring board and bone folder to make the bottom look like a 'knitted rib' effect.


Next came the tie-shaped box, it came together really quickly and would be a fun holder for some candy/nuts or maybe a cigar.


I finished off with some matching envelopes, and my project is ready to go.



So I hope I have given you a little inspiration today for a 'manly project', or a jump start on Father's Day. Until next time.

Michelle

Super cute! The embossing folder is perfect and I thought you had planned the bottom, not an afterthought.

Wow, amazing! Love the embossing on the shirt. It sure doesn't look like an after thought. TFS

Love this. I just got these files in silhouette and to see it assembled in 3d is so fun and inspiring. TFS

That is so adorable! And I love how your little boo-boo with the embossing turned out perfect afterall - it was meant to be ;). Love your paper selection too!

I love it, Michelle. I really like the way you embossed the vest. I actually thought it was knit at first glance!
