Cards for Dad

These are the cards that I gave my dad for Father's Day and for his birthday this year. Usually he gets a 2 for 1 deal since his birthday is a few days after Father's Day but since I had the second one already made, I thought he would enjoy it too. The stamps are by PaperArtsy, Stampin' Up and Hero Arts. The filmstrip and mini staples are Tim Holtz products. I used double sided tape to adhere the film strip but it didn't stick! I'll have to try using glue dots next time. The sentiment and advert are popped up with 3d dots and the gentleman who looks like Derek Jeter is embossed in black.

The filmstrip is also a Tim Holtz product made by Sizzix. The photos are from my friends and family (I used my grandfather and cousin on an earlier ATC) and the gears is an embossing folder for the Cuttlebug. This second card I created for a shoebox project at the May 2011 CNY gathering in Syracuse. I am thinking of using a variation of the first card for my shoebox at the next stamping day in August!
