The Cat and the Grill

Hi friends! I'm on a little sabbatical from Classy Cards 'n Such while guest designing over at Cheery Lynn Designs this month, but I had to share the card I made for my hubby for Father's Day.

I used the following dies and papers from Classy Cards 'n Such to create this fun scene:

Party Grill die
Walking Cat die
Grass border die
Puffy Clouds dies
Grill Masters dies
Kraft cardstock
Luminized Curious Metallic Silver cardstock
Summer Fresh 6x6 paper pad

I cut the party grill from the silver cardstock and then used a black Copic marker to color in the grill. I also cut the tongs and the spatula from the same silver cardstock. It's so shimmery - I love it! You can see the shimmer on the grill here:

The grill mitt was cut from red gingham paper from the Summer Fresh paper pad for a fun little pop of color. The clouds were cut from white paper, the cat from black paper, and the grass from green paper. I sponged a little blue ink across the top of my white background and then I sponged some green ink across the bottom. After everything was glued down, I adhered my scene and the three utensil squares onto a Kraft card base.

This card was so much fun to make. I think my hubby will like it. I hope I can keep it hidden until Father's Day! :-)  Shhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
