Love you Dad.!

Before even beginning to post this.. I just want to thank my cousin who has very patiently been doing all the cutting for me.. I don't think I could have crafted without her and would have gone crazy doing nothing..

 Saw the shadow box card which Kavi posted and I was like I wanna try it too.. So I emailed her asking for help which she did.. Thanks so much dearie.. Here is my version of the shaker box card which I have made for dad...

Masculine cards are so difficult to make.. I could not decide on which embellishment to use.. Kept it simple... Some beads and that ribbon bow which took me twenty minutes.. Damn the hand... and I topped it up with a button..

Close ups...!!

The supplies used:

CS=> Fabriano Elle Erre
DP=> Studio Calico(grove)
Digi image was a freebie picked from the freedigital images blog
Sentiment 1=> From
Sentiment 2=>
Ribbon=> RAK from Ash
Button and Pearls from stash
