My father's birthday has just past and I made this wonderful card for him. As of late we have visited him in Colorado where we fish, hike, and just enjoy nature, he has become the "Mountain Man" complete with beard and hat!!
Come join in on the fun of our Great Outdoors Co-Hop with Xyron, and what a week this is going to be! Not only will we have some great projects to show you, but you can win some great products each day from Xyron. AND, if you hop over to Xyron's blog each day as well, you can win some great products from Paper House!
I used the wonderful "In the Wild" Paper Pad by Paper House Productions with the "Gone Fishing" page front and back. I cut out a section in the bottom left corner measuring 4.75 x 6.25 inches on the front side, then matted it with the backside adding 0.25 inches.
The paper itself has this wonderful shiny metallic tot he cattails bursting from the bottom of the page, and they match perfectly with the "Mountain Man" sticker from the 3D sticker pack "Out in the Country" by Paper House Productions. The sheen and depth to these stickers is just amazing!!
I used the wonderful Xyron adhesives to glue to papers together and also to help glue some of the little alpha sticker to the paper. My 2 year old daughter got a hold of the stickers and took away the stickiness of some of them, so I zipped them thorought the Xyron Sticker Maker and poof they were sticky again!!
I could not resist to decorate the envelope too, of course by request from my children, they even helped!! I thought that the other stickers in the "Out in the Country" were just too cute to not use so they help me place them on the front and back. I did add the little tackle box sticker to the back of the envelope from the "Grandpa" 3D sticker pack from Paper House and then gave it a title of Grandpa.
I always find it harder to make a card for a man than a woman or child, so I hope this gives you some great ideas for the men in your lives!!
