Dearest Dad…

Time Flies…. And now its June already! Father Day is coming soon. I have already make a card for my dad. I am dedicating this post to my dad of 30 years… He is a person whom I seldom talk to. In a Asian country, older generation especially father will be seen as stern so I am not very close to him. He is always out working. But I admired his strength and effort to support this family. I am proud to have him as my father. He is the sole bread-winner of the whole family of 7. He always did whatever he can to make sure that everyone is safe and sound. And the most important is that we do not have to worry about financial. And he has supported me through out my life in my studies till University which I can get a job and support myself. So for this Father’s Day, I wish to tell my father I love him! I wish him health, wealth and happy always 🙂

Here is my dad when I was small, see how young he is and I am already a third child in the family. I have four other siblings. 🙂

Here is my card :). I have used one whole sheet of 8.5 X11 enchanted evening cardstock and fold it into a shirt which you can open up and write your sentiments inside.  I have just received my order from papertrey ink – I am IN LOVE with this stamp set – A Little Argyle which  you can stamp in different colours and pattern!

Here is the photo where you can open up the shirt and write your sentiments:

Birthday Girl Card

Hello… Beside flowers… the next things I am in love with are BUTTERFLIES!!!!! Can you see my card for this week? Its full of techniques and all my first time of trying out things! Today’s Pattern paper that I have used is from Webster page: Post Card from Paris. I really love their paper which is so vintage and dreamy. Love the color combo of this pack which I will use it again and again.

I took the paper and used one of the corner of that beautiful flower as my background of the card. I love to make my own embellishment here. I make my own butterfly with punch, stamp my fav polka dot basic II and layered button on top. Its soooo fun! And the rest of the small butterflies – I tried to do a 3 dimension and stick them together. Before sticking them, I spray on some glitter pearl glimmer mist on them and distressed them.

Next, I stamped some butterflies image into the pattern paper before stamping on my sentiments “Birthday Girl”.  To focus on the word, I decided to get my Big Shot to work with QuicKutz Frame to die cut the fame and paste it on top. 🙂

I am loving color! and Kristina is having color challenge again! I am using this card to participate and please join if you have the time! Its will be alot of fun! See ya!!!
