I have been so excited for my new My Favourite things to arrive but life has been a little hectic, trying to get the garden sorted out so I literally just have not had two minutes to play. But of course Fathers Day is nearly here here in the UK, so I had the perfect excise to create a card
Decided to give todays card a comic book vibe. The card panel was just created with pre programmed shaped on the scan n cut
There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Card Making Tutorial
The card panel was created on the scan n cut
A piece was white card was blended with the distress oxides
The card panel had the tiny sentimenta and stamped heat embossed in the blueberry
The distressed panel had sentiments heat embossed so the could be seen through the windows, in the mint
The stamps were coloured and fussy cut out
The panel, background and images were adhered together
This was then glued onto a Kraft card base
Nuvo Drops were then used to decprate the panel, along with a few sequins

I made the mistake of asking Mini Miss H what sort of card she would like me to make her to give to Daddy for Fathers Day. She thought about it for the whole of about 5 seconds before she proudly announced , Erm I would like it to be a wine bar.....
My imagination totally left my body as I stumbled over my words, but after the initial "how the heck am I gonna do that?" moment. I had a little idea that developed and turned into a bigger idea....
I make no secret of the fact that I struggle with masculine cards, so to have to do 2 dad cards for my own children, 1 husband card and 1 dad and Grandad for my own father can feel belittle overwhelming and I fear I end up making them all a little similar.
I fancied something a little different for my own dad so decide to go down the route of a pop up card themed as a vintage tool box
I always struggle when it comes to male cards, the inspiration just does not flow like it does with female cards. So when Creative Stamping magazine came with a free set of Hunkydory, For the Love of Stamps The Great Outdoors stamp set, earlier in the year I knew that I would save them for this occasion.
