Take time to relax! card made using NEW Father's Day mini

Hello, friends!

There are a few questions I wanted to answer from yesterday's card. Firstly, the images seem really easy to cut out so far. Now I cut it out at 3", so I cannot say that the shapes will cut out great at 1".

Ok ladies, you have all asked and so I might as well tell you. I buy my Double Dot paper from my local scrapbooking store called Scrappin' Bunnies or online from Cropper's Paradise.  Also, you can just google Bo Bunny Double Dot.

Today I have a card for you using the NEW Father's Day mini. This cut just called to me because it does not have to be for Father's day. I love finding things are specific cartridges that can be used for other things!



I used Close To My Heart paper.
The stamps are from Papertrey Ink.
I cut the chair out at 4".


Have a wonderful Wednesday! I will see you all back here on Thursday with at winner of the Paper Lace cartridge!

Love this! Can be used for get well cards too. Can you believe it? I managed to get to a computer to check out my fav blogs. Didn't think I would be able to this week -

The card is a great idea! I, too, like to use themed cartridges for other cards. That way I don't feel guilty for having so many!

I have this cartridge on my wish list, too because of all the versatile cuts. Like a tv remote! Why, that could be used for a lot of occasions. ANd there are more very usable cuts, like the chair you used.

mom2h said...

Oh, yeah...forgot to ask...where did you get the border and sentiment? or did I miss that info somewhere?
Thanks!

Connie Gage said...
