FCCB Father's Day Challenge #253

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #253 - Celebrate Dad-create a card or project for Dad

This Weeks Sponsor

There will be 3 winners of $7 gift certificates!

Create a project inspired by Father's Day

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

Here is my project-

The card was made with the Digiplayground SVG File-Oak Leaf Pop Up card, out of Coredinations Chocolate mint cardstock, lime & white twine from the Twinery, and Cards TV "Happy Days" stamp set. The tag was cut out of the same cardstock with Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. The Ornament box
is a really useful box! It has 3 different inserts for money, gift cards, or $1 lottery tickets! I chose the money insert-

Here is what it looks like with the cover over the box-

and what it looks like with the band around it.

I decorated the band with some left over stickers (stash) and cardstock from DCWV Pet Stack and American Crafts (Ivory). My father-in-laws little chihuahua was in the vet's office for about 4 days with pancreatic problems & pre-diabetes, so my husband and I are picking up the bill for his Father's Day Gift. That little dog means the world to Norm, so I can't think of a better gift.

Show us your Father's day creations to win one of THREE $7 gift certificates!
