New Challenge at Exploring Cricut

The challenge for this week at Exploring Cricut is to create a card, layout or papercraft for Father's Day using any 2 Cricut cuts. I decided to resort to my comfort zone and do a card for my dad.

My Father's Day card is 5x7 and the pattern paper is from the Wings paper pack. I used cartridges Father's Day (of course) and Calligraphy Collection.

"Happy Father's Day" was cut using Calligraphy Collection at 3.59.
The golf club, ball, and tee was cut using Father's Day at 3.71. Since I use a Gypsy I was able to use the hide feature to make the three cuts.

I used the embossing folder "Swiss dots" to put the holes in the golf ball. The ball looks a little out of focus because I put gray ink on the raised nubs of the folder so that there would be some definition to the golf ball and it moved before I could pull the handle.

A very simple card, but my dad is a golfer so it is so perfect for him. Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope you find your inspiration to create your Father's Day project. Don't forget to post to the Exploring Cricut site so that you can be entered for the prize!
