Opa (SSS June Card Kit)

Hi everyone!

Me again. ;) I'm back with another card using the Simon Says Stamp June Card Kit: Something Awesome.

*Simon Says Stamp Card Kit of the Month JUNE 2013 SOMETHING AWESOME

As soon as I saw the mustache and tie stamps it made me think of my Dad. A number of years ago I could of stamped that mustache in black...but...well...things have changed. ;) I thought it would be fun to make a clean and simple card that my kids could give to my Dad, their Opa, for Father's Day.


I heat embossed the mustache and sentiment directly on the card front and used some of the alpha stickers to spell 'Opa.' I then clear heat embossed the tie on patterned paper, cut it out and adhered it to the card. I plan to use some of the fun mustache washi tape on the envelop once it's ready to go.

Supplies:


Just a reminder that sweet Heidi, owner of Simon Says Stamp, has given me an extra card kit to give away! Just leave a comment on any of my card kit posts (this is my third) by Tuesday, May 21st and I'll post the winner on Wednesday, May 22nd! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
