Happy Camper Birthday

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.
 
cloud cut outs and kraft gingham - too cool
 
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.
 
 
Supplies:
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
 
Thanks for stopping by,

  1. I love this. I think I might have my son do a camping themed gift for my husband's birthday next week. Thank you for the inspiration.
