Team Training - Dapper Dad Card 1

At Saturday's team training event, we made three cards using the Dapper Dad stamp set from the Spring/Summer Seasonal Catalogue.   This was a stamp set I'd not used before, and as always, as soon as I started stamping, and playing with it, I wanted it!  All the ladies go home from training events with wishlists bigger than they were that morning.

The first card I'll be sharing has the colour combo of Night of Navy, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla card stock.  We all got a bit confused on our table starting these cards, and stamped the wrong colours on the wrong card, and cut pieces to the wrong size. We're too eager to get going sometimes! The watch image was stamped twice onto Very Vanilla card stock, one was cut out and the other just had the watch face stamped out with the 1" Circle Punch.  The watch face was placed onto a large silver button, to produce a very effective looking watch. I love how different items fit together.  This was mounted onto a circle punched with the 2 1/2" Circle Punch.  The Happy Father's Day sentiment is from Bring On The Cake stamp set.  A strip of the Natural Trim ribbon was placed across the front of the Crumb Cake card stock and a piece of Bakers Twine was tied around the end.

The picture below shows a close up of the watch, where you can see the edge of the Silver Button.  Doesn't it look effective and just like a real watch!

Father's Day is on Sunday 16th June, so if you like this card, or any of the products used, please get in touch to place your order.  There's plenty of time for you to play around with them to make the perfect card.
