Dad's radio......

One of the ladies who comes to my Wednesday classes and my Swarms wanted to make a card with a radio on it for her hubby. I suggested that she make a card in the shape of a radio and together we came up with this (although this is my take on the card- Chris's was different) I cut a base card to start from white cardstock, then adhered the two shapes together at the side. I then cut another piece of plain brown cardstock and adhered it to the card. The radio icon was then cut from woodprint paper and brown mirri, put together and adhered with foam pads to the card base, leaving a narrow border around the cut. I added a rim around the dial cut from silver mirri and adhered with foam pads. The cream circle behind the 'pointer' was embossed with a woodgrain-effect embossing folder. A silver card candi added to the centre finished off the dial. To complete the card I added some musical notes cut from black mirri, 'Dad' and a 'Happy Fathers Day' oval cut from brown mirri and holographic card.

Here is a version for a brother's birthday too!
