My Dad Measures Up Card

It's Tuesday again and time for another challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz. The theme this week is Father's Day. Since Sunday will be arriving quickly, I definitely needed to get a card done for my dad. My dad makes custom cabinets and other custom projects from his home workshop. Growing up I used to tinker in his shop with him and to this day the smell of sawdust reminds me of him. I don't have any tool related stamps and I couldn't find a suitable digital image, so I used this patterned paper by Karen Foster Designs. The Dad was cut using my Cricut machine and I added two silver brads for accents (I wish I had the ones that look like the heads of screws, but I didn't). On the inside I'll use my computer to create a sentiment using the measures up angle. Oh... just so you know, I measured all my papers twice and cut them once when making this My Dad Measures Up Card to follow shop protocol, of course. I hope he likes it!

We would love for you to join up this week! Click here for more inspiration from the design team. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day.
