Grand

 Hello Friends, it's me Venus posting here. It's Father's Day tomorrow, and I made some cards to be given away. This card is for my dad. I chose to keep it simple outside because there's a surprise waiting inside...
The front of the card has a chipboard phase "grand" that I inked then misted with glimmer mist.


Tadaaa! It's a pop up card! Oh my, this card was so easy and fun to do because of the Sizzix pop up circle die. I chose this really handsome cat with three little kittens by Pink Cat Studio
because it represents the number of grandchildren he has..


I printed out the names then cut them out into banners. Each one was attached to a clear acetate strip, so it appears to be floating. The circles on the background were attached to the panel using foam tapes to make them pop.

Supplies:
metallic copper cardstock, gold cardstock, DCWV cardstock, Rangers Tea Dye, Pink Cat Studio digi stamp, Faber Castell color pens, Marvy uchida giga circle punch, Sizzix bigz circle pop-up die, Technique Tuesday stamp, Spellbinders label die, Tim Holtz Wordplay, Tattered angels glimmer mist, black rhinestones
