Dogs for Dad

It was my Dad's Birthday yesterday...and it's Father's Day soon when I was at home over half-term, I made a couple of things for my Dad.

The gift tag on the bottle is for Father's Day, and the card was for his Birthday - it's a wallet type card, with some gift vouchers inside. I've photographed them together, as they match...although he won't be getting them at the same time! The images are both Penny Black ('Circus Act' and from the 'Bubbly' set), I used my Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' folder for the embossing, the ribbon is from Hobbycraft, the tag was cut using a Sizzix die, and the little sentiment stamp is from a Studio G set.

Here's a close-up of the card:

The little sentiments are actually holding a bookmark in place...they're raised on 3D foam, so that the bookmark slides in and out.

Here's the bookmark:


I'm going to enter these in to the C.R.A.F.T. Challenge where the theme is 'Father's Day/Men's Cards' and Stampavie & More's 'Spots' challenge.
