What a fun card this was to make.  Awhile back I typed up and printed off a bunch of "DAD" sentiments to use on cards. When I saw the Tool Box and Nail brads from the EyeletOutlet.com, I decided to make a "DAD" card.   I wish I could remember the name of the My Favorites Things die that I used to get the three circles.  I die-cut it in black and then white.

SSSC281 "I LOVE YOU MORE THAN THE SUN SHINES" card


Ahhhhh.. how good it feels to make something.  I have been so busy with doing a Craft and Yard Sale, getting ready for a move, finding a place to live, getting a child ready for college.. plus so much more.  I finally sat down to make something tonight and the first place I went to grab a sketch is one of my favorite.. Sweet Sunday Sketch.  I seen a challenge posted in a Facebook group I am in using Lime Green and Black, so I went with those colors. I really wanted to use yellow and die-cut a sun to put on the card, but I stuck with the challenge colors, maybe next time.

Here's my card:

"YOU MEAN THE WORLD TO ME" lot of cards *w/measurements


This card pictured above is one I made a while back. I liked the layout so much, I decided to make a bunch more.  I cut and stamped everything and had put together a card kit that I took to TN, but this was one of the kids that my mom and I wasn't able to get to, so I thought I'd go ahead and assemble it. I used Mini Brads from the Eyelet Outlet on the cards when I made them before, last night while assembling all these cards, I decided to leave the brads off.



Everything is laid out and ready to be put together.. yeah!!



When I started putting these together I didn't realize how many layers there was...  I am running very low on adhesive.. like ONE box left.. yikes!  so I was trying to find creative ways to get these all put together using my ATG tape and Scor-Pal Tape.




Here they all are.. all put together.




*MEASUREMENTS:

card base:  5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"

black layer:  4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
pattern layer:  4"  x 5 1/4"

large panel:

black layer:  3 3/8" x 4 5/8"
pattern layer:  3 1/4" x 4 1/2"

rectangle layer:

black layer: 2 5/8" x 3 3/8"
pattern layer:  2 1/2" x  3 1/4"

banner flag:
black layer;  1 3/4" wide *I cut mine about 1 1/2-2" because it was going to be tucked up under the other layer and you wasn't going to see it. 
pattern layer:  1 5/8" wide.    I laid the pattern on the black layer and then cut the fish tails, then moved up the pattern paper when I adhered them together.

sentiment was stamped on a punched out circle and layered on another punched out circle.

*SUPPLIES:

card stock:  black, cream
pattern paper: WeRMemory Keepers Storytime line: Hansel  and Big Bad Wolf
stamps: Stamps of life Phrases2Say
ink:  Hero Arts Black
accessories: Scor-Pal, Circle Punches and Foam Tape

Lot of "I LOVE YOU" red, white and black cards



We recently went on a trip to TN and before leaving I made several "card kits" for my mom and I to put together while we were there.   We had two of the kits that we didn't get to put together, so last night I thought I'd assemble them.  




The heart is die-cut from an MFT Heart die, both heart with circles and solid layer.   I had recently seen where someone used a lint roller to get the tiny pieces out of die cuts so I thought I'd give it a try. WOW!! it really works and it only took me a few minutes to get all the circles removed from each of the hearts.  I will be keeping a lint roller nearby from now on.



Here are all the cards assembled.   Super easy to do since removing the circles from the hearts took no time at all thanks to the lint roller.
