Now for a little background info on my dad. He served in the US Marine Corp during WWII. He is as all Marines, "Once a Marine, Always A Marine". He just love the Marine Corp. His next favorite love is The University of Alabama and its football team. So I wanted to have a hint of each of these in the card. My dad has a room that he enjoys spending most of his time in. The decor is US Marines and Alabama Football. My mom always told him he could put as much of that stuff in his room as he wished. But it would be in his room only. The deal was fine with him.
He has this red recliner that he sits in to watch his larger than life size television while he drinks his coffee. The recliner and cup of coffee are cut from the Cricut cartridge SUMMER CELEBRATIONS. I embossed it with a Sizzix folder and inked it in gold. I really like the way the embossing pattern on the chair is so similar to the pattern in the background paper.
The striped mats are there to represent the crimson and white of the Alabama football team. I created the mats with the Ticking Stripe Background stamp from Just Rite Stampers.
The sentiments are both cut from the Cricut cartridge SUMMER CELEBRATIONS. And I finished the card with dimensional . They represent the US Marine Corp. I am excited to give the card to him along with his gift on Father's Day!!
This card was also designed with a sketch from Die Cuttin Divas.
