Dad - You're a star !

Well today it is time to share with you my 1st DT project for Easy craft projects.
I am very excited to join such a fab team and look forward to playing along with the DT girls and you too !

This week we want you to show us your projects for Dad. With Fathers day in June it's a great chance to get a card made so you won't be rushing around the day before - like I usually am !
But you are welcome to share any craft project like a scrapbook page or an altered item - as long as it's for a dad.

My card was made using DP from All my memories and a Bazzill just the edge trim which I embossed with my Swiss dots folder and bigshot.

My star was stamped and then embossed using an embossing pen, and bronze embossing powder, which meant that I could pick out the detail of the stitching and also the edge of my die cut circle and the top star in its entirety.

I stitched the papers {and border} which is one of my favorite things to do at the moment using my sew easy tool - I love it x

So I hope you will join in with us at easy craft projects - you have a fortnight to complete a project for or about a dad.

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

Paper sundaes - Pop it up !
Sparkles forum challenges - Something metal (embossing - bronze)
The Kraft journal - Clean and simple
Lexi's Creations - Spots or stripes
Gingersnap creations - Colour combo (denim, rust & tan)
The house that stamps built - Stitching

Thanks for visiting today x
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo

What a fabulous masculine card design! Absolutely love the patriotic looking papers mixed with the kraft, and I LOVE that circle punch out with the star. The stitching is fabulous, too.
Thanks so much for sharing this with us at The Kraft Journal.
