Best Dad Traveler

#stampinup  Father's Day is coming up soon. My kids like to give their Dad a card, but they aren't really into making a card for Dad. So, I end up making three cards! (Some years, I only make one and have them all sign it.) I already had two made and I needed one more--and this week's sketch at the Paper Craft Crew Challenges was just the ticket!

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 148. #stampinup #papercraftcrew

I started with a Basic Gray card base. Next I cut an Island Indigo mat and added a strip of Everyday Chic Designer Series Paper. I added a length of Island Indigo 1/4" Cotton Ribbon and adhered this to my card base.

Next, I cut a 2" x 3" Whisper White piece and stamped the ship from the "Traveler" set in Island Indigo. I backed this with a 2-1/8" x 3-1/8" Basic Gray mat and adhered it to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

I stamped the "Best Dad Ever" sentiment in Basic Gray onto a Whisper White scrap and punched it out with the Word Window Punch. I adhered this to the card with one dimensional, cut in half. Finally, I punched a two flags with the Banner Punch--one in Island Indigo and the other in Basic Gray and adhered these to the card, under the ribbon, with a little Snail Adhesive.
