My Dad's 75th birthday was last week. His present is a little late as I've been busy with packing, moving, unpacking and all of the stress that goes along with it. Dad loves camping, so I thought a camping themed birthday surprise was in order. The card was a "pinterest" inspired card. You can find a link to the card here.
So, for my card, I used the Quickutz Camper die set instead of the airplane. The clouds were made using the My Favorite Things Cloud Die-Namics.
I bought my Dad a gift card to Lowe's, so to package it a fun way, I filled two card boxes with mini Snickers Bars (one of his favorites) and slipped the card into one of the boxes. Then, I made a belly band with a matching medallion for the front. I used the trailer Quickutz again, and also cut a tree out with another Quickutz Die. The moon was made using a circle paper punch. I made my own "chipboard" letters by cutting out several layers of each letter, gluing them together, and then covering them with Diamond Glaze.
Here is a picture of the set together.
Paper: Echo Park, Recollections, Jillibean Soup
Misc: Quickutz Camper and Christmas Tree Dies, circle paper punch. Diamond Glaze, My Favorite Things Clouds Die-Namics, Cuttlebug Tag Sale Alphabet, pop up dots, clear acetate card boxes
