Background blue star paper is by Bo Bunny and the rest of the cardstock is MFT.  The Jumbo Fishtail Banner dies are by MFT (love these!), Congrats die is by Penny Black - glittered up with a little Wink of Stella, twine is by Lawn Fawn and boy do I love this stuff..easiest twine to tie as it has a waxy type coating :)

OSAT June Blog Hop - Happy Fathers Day or Man Cards

Hello and welcome to the June OSAT Blog Hop!  I hope you enjoyed Holly Stene's wonderful projects before you arrived here. This months theme is Father's Day or Man Cards.  I think quite often when we hear "man card",  we don't always consider a lot of bold or bright colors.  But, knowing the man that I created this card for, color and humor are his style!  I just ordered Tim Holtz's set, "Crazy Birds" and couldn't wait to ink them up!  There are 6 birds in the set and it was hard to decide which ones to ink up, they're all so much fun :)

In addition to the card, I decorated a purchased striped gift bag to match my card which was so simple!  Using scraps, I just stamped a partial image of the bird onto a white strip of cardstock, then pasted it on some teal cardstock.  I used a straight die with a zig zag border to create a decorative edge.  I finished it off with a bit of twine, filled the bag with some Werther's Originals and stapled it shut!  I plan to put the card and gift bag on top of my husband's wrapped gift for Father's Day!

Materials List:

Cardstock: MFT Tropical Teal, Black and Lemon Drop
Stamps: Crazy Birds by Tim Holtz
Zig Zag die cut on bag: Avery Elle Dotted Borders Die
Coloring: Copic Markers
Handsome Sign Die: MFT Pierced Rectangles
Sentiment on Gift Bag: SimonSaysStamp
Little Dots on Card: Pico Embellishers

I hope you've enjoyed my projects today, thank you for stopping by!  Please continue along the hop by clicking the next button to see what the super talented Andrea Pancrazio has in store for you!
