Grill in the Window

Hi friends! I'm still on sabbatical from Classy Cards 'n Such while I'm doing my guest designer stint over at Cheery Lynn Designs, but I had to make some cards for Father's Day. This is the one I'm sending to my Dad, so I kept this clean and simple. I started with a Kraft card base and then I scored the front of the card with the Scor-Buddy every 1/4" inch. I know it's hard to see, so here is a close-up picture:

The window was cut with brown cardstock and the Grand Madison Window die. I cut the Party Grill from white cardstock and then colored it with my Copic markers. The grill was adhered to the back of the window, and then I trimmed a piece of pale blue cardstock and adhered that behind the grill. The entire window piece was adhered to my scored kraft card base. My finishing touch was to cut the letters from the Parker Upper Alphabet set and I arranged them to spell DAD below the window.

I didn't add any other embellishments since this is going in the mail. Also, my dad isn't into a lot of foo-foo, so I think this will be perfect. I hope he likes it! :-)  You can order the grill, window, and alphabet dies from Classy Cards 'n Such.  Be sure to use this code, Holly-10, to save 10% off your order.  I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

He'll love it. The scoring makes the kraft paper look like aluminum siding and I love the steam! I can almost smell those burgers now . . .

I have a special fondness for BBQ cards (weird, I know), so I think your card really rocks! Love the embossed lines and the window look!
