Dad's Hat

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Lois Bak our challenge hostess for the month, finishes off the month with one last challenge.

Apparently today is International Tiger Day. Our challenge for this week is to include a tiger (or other cat) on your card – tiger, lion, your own little tabby (you get the idea).

I recently purchased Stampin' Up's Hats Off Die and stamp set, one of the labels included in the set that can be used to decorate the cap is a tiger. As my husband loves the Richmond Tigers which is a Australian Rules Football team here in Australia, I decided to make a Father's Day card using that label.

I have created a top folding Mini Slimline Card which measures 3 1/4 inches x 6 1/4 inches, for the layers of my card I used Mini Slimline Dies from Trinity Stamps. I die cut the cap from black and yellow cardstock and  trimmed off the brim from the yellow cap and adhered this tot the black one.

I used Lil Inker Designs "Dad" die which I die cut from black and yellow cardstock and offset the yellow over the black so it creates a shadow. I added this to the top left hand corner of the card.

I added the Happy Father's Day sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Dad & Me stamp set.

For the inside of the card, I created various layers of card and patterned paper using the Trinity Stamps Mini Slimline dies. 

I added a sentiment to the rectangle panel which is from Waffle Flower Craft's Be Him Sentiments stamp set.

To finish off the inside of the card I added another of the Tiger Labels & a #1 Label to each side of the sentiment.

I love that SU set and die. I have been tempted many times to add it to my ever-growing list of "must have" things. I see all kinds of great ways to use this and love this idea of yours.

That's the perfect card for your hubby, spotlighting his favorite team!

Great card for that challenge. I've been having lots of fun with this die set as well. 😊
