Birthday Card for My Dad

I made this card for my dad's birthday next week. 

Here's the story of the jeans (which are meant to look very well worn!)  My dad is very handy and has been building an addition to a shed.  He wears these jeans when he works (there are at least double the patches though!)  He wore them out once when we were visiting over Christmas and my mom was mortified!  I think it's hilarious!

I used the Cricut cartridges Elegant Edges for the scalloped edged rectangle and Everyday Paper Dolls for the "holey" jeans.  The stamp comes from a clear set -Heidi Grace Birthday Cake Surprise.  I used Core'dinations Cardstock for the jeans, which I distressed to make them look old and worn. I used foam adhesive to pop up the jeans.  On the inside I'll write something about how it's his day and he can wear his jeans all day if he wants to!

Recent Cards

Here are a couple of cards I've made somewhat recently....

The first is a birthday card for my mom (from November.)  I used the Cricut cartridge Pooh and Friends for the pumpkins (great extras on this cartridge!), the Cuttlebug Pumpkin Harvest A2 embossing folder sanded after embossing (love the Co'redinations cardstock!) , Fiskar's Scalloped Sentiments punch, and a Studio G stamp.

 The second card is the Christmas card I sent to family members this year.  I waited until literally the last minute to even make these!  I used the Cricut Elegant Edges cartridge, the Cuttlebug Textile A2 folder, the Stampendous Cling Sacred Silhoutte stamp and some gold glittered cardstock (that cut beautifully with my new Expression!)  It was a very easy design to replicate!  Normally I drive myself crazy trying to create a different card for everyone!


I haven't posted in forever!  My husband and I are expecting a baby girl in April!  When I told my family back in October, I found out that my younger sister is also due in April, just a few weeks before me!  My parents are so excited to be first time grandparents, not once but twice!  I haven't been crafting as much recently - just trying to get ready for the baby!

Here's my sister and I visiting at my parents' house after Christmas!
