Happy Dad's Day.....

Hope you all celebrated your Dad yesterday and told him how much you love him! Sadly, my Dad is no longer with us, he died almost a year ago, so I couldn't make him a card, but I can still make one for my boys to give to their Dad. I've been making a lot of shaped easel cards just lately, mainly thanks to the Sports Mania cart which I've made ball game based cards with, and I kept with the circular style for this one. I cut the card base plus an extra circle, then folded one half of the top back on itself, then adhered the top half of the separate circle to it. I covered both parts of the card with some very old Dovecraft paper, and added a brown off-set circle topped with a blue embossed circle. I cut the collar & tie three times, twice in card and again in striped paper. I cut the collar portion from one of the cuts, adhered the full paper collar and tie to the full card one, and then adhered the other collar with foam pads. I added a jewelled brad as a tie pin, then adhered it to the blue circle with foam pads.
I cut 'Happy', 'Dad' and 'Dad's Day' from blue card shadowed with brown, and '#1' from pale blue card shadowed with brown. These were then adhered to the card with foam pads. 'Happy Dad's Day' forms the 'stop' for the top of the card.
