Happy Father's Day 2014

My girl and I sat down last night and made some cards for Father's Day.  We made three, one for her dad and one for each of her grandfathers.  This was the perfect occasion to use the new Mustache Framelit die.  I knew I wanted to layer the Mustache die over a heart that used DSP.  Since I'm still collecting the DSP from the new catalog, I used the Retro Fresh from the recent Occasions Mini.

The base of the card is Coastal Cabana embossed with the Arrows TIEF.  So Saffron was used for the sentiment panel and the words stamped in Cajun Craze.  The Mustache is Baked Brown Sugar card stock and embossed with Decorative Dots TIEF.

All this creativity inspired my girl.  She has a birthday party next week for a very good friend and she wanted to make her card herself from start to finish.  She started by sketching out an idea she had in a little notebook.  Then she told me what colors she wanted and I gave her the corresponding Stampin' Up! colors, Crumb Cake, Confetti White and Strawberry Slush.  She used the now retired cupcake stamp set and the corresponding punch that is still available.  

The only thing I did for her was tie the main bow.  Didn't she do a great job?  Being in the craft studio with her was a lot of fun!  She even organized my punch draw for me!
