Pop 'n Cuts Chair Father's Day Card

 I also made another Father's Day card today, for Scott's Dad (nothing like last minute rushing to get things in the post on time!)
I started off with a card cut from the tall Pop 'n Cuts base with no insert, and added some Tim Holtz brick embossing, then Karen Burnison's Bigz door, and my parents-in-law's door number cut with the Sizzix Typeset alphabet die.
The door opens to show the sentiment stamped onto an oval from the Wavy Labels Framelits set, and embellished with swirls from Tim Holtz's Festive Greenery die.
Inside the card, I used Karen's new 3-D Chair insert, and the companion Textured Impressions Foyer set for the rug.
I printed out a picture of Scott's Dad and 'framed' it (he has recently taken up fishing!), then added little details like the brad 'nail' on the wall, and the light switch.
I really did have fun adding more little details, like the remote controls, cushion, faux leather slippers, and newspaper...
I hope he likes it!
The challenge at Country View Crafts, is to use Die Cuts, so I am entering this card.

Some of the products I used:



  1. I love the rug and slippers you added, but I especially love the photo - such a personal touch for a wonderful card.
