OWH Sketch Challenge #117... Gus the Golfer ~ Dad card
The card I made today using this week's OWH Stars & Stamps blog Sketch Challenge #117.. uses a Gus the Golfer image I colored weeks ago.. it happened to already be cut down to this size.. so I crossed my fingers that I had a Nestabilities circle die that would fit.. and I did.. yeah!!!
I cut out the circle, then took the die and flipped it over, traced it and then cut that circle out.. I put dimensionals on the back of the circle so I could put it on the bottom layer..... I put on and took off that circle several times.. first it wasn't how I liked it, then I put it back on and then realized I wanted to sew around the outside of the bottom layer, so off it came again.
After picking some pattern papers, attaching them to the white layer, sewing around the edges.. I was set to put it together, but I had forgotten the two strips. I cut out the black layers and then some white panels that I embossed and flipped over so that the looked like the surface of a golf ball with the divots.
When I had it all put together.. I decided to add the DAD circle and then I was done. I love making golf themed cards. Every man in my family plays golf.
My husband, son and daughter were at the driving range earlier this evening.. it's a daily thing to be at the golf course or range and the only thing that would keep you is the weather.. ha ha. er. well maybe surgery too.. since I am having surgery tomorrow I am thinking that they might not be hitting the links tomorrow afternoon.
Here is the sketch I used:
