#1 Papa

I have really been having fun using the Guy Talk Stamp Set from K Andrew Designs. It has been perfect for the Father's Day cards I made.

For this card I got a little creative and separated the words from the Big Papa and the #1 Dad sentiments to make my own saying . . . . #1 Papa!  That is what I always call my Grandfather.  It started a LONG time ago.  He calls me his #1 Granddaughter, since I am the first born, and I call him my #1 Papa . . . because he IS!


Papa loves bright colors, so I knew this card needed to be bright and fun like him.  First I found the brightly colored patterned paper which just seemed PERFECT.  Then I just started to pick coordinating solid colored papers.  I cut the bright patterned paper into an rounded corner rectangle, and then cut the same shape in a shadow cut to back it.  I then did the same thing for the yellow and green pieces that I placed horizontally.  The background need just a little bit more, so I embossed it with the Houndstooth Cuttlebug Folder.  The final touch was the sentiment #1 Papa!
