You're A Classic Dad!

Today I'd like to share another really special card - this one I was commissioned to make for a friend to give to her Dad for Father's Day.  Her Dad's career was with the Coca Cola Company and we all know they are amazing people that are very dedicated ~ especially the 'older generation' that grew up with this product!  

I knew this needed to be a special card for sure to honor this man on his day!

I selected the My Favorite Things Soda Pop Bottles stamps and die set and made this amazing Shaker Card with Icy Glazed Classic Coke bottles.

I started by stamping and die cutting the two coke bottles, then Copic coloring them to resemble true bottles of Coke.

I almost stopped here - honestly I wasn't so sure about putting glossy accents on the bottles.  I wanted them 'icy and shiny' but was a bit afraid I'd mess them up and have to start over!  So I took a scrap and tried it just on the top.

Cool - that worked - so I covered both the bottles and set them aside to dry overnight. 

Next, I made the rectangle shaker for the center using Whimsy Stamp Rectangle Shaker Die and several shades / shapes of gold shinny beads and sequins.  Once that was completed and added to the large 5 x 8 aqua card base, I added the red dotted DAD letters at the top and the small stamped circle 'You're a Classic' in the center of the 'a'.

I took the 2" strip at the bottom, and wound the coordinating blue string around three times then knotted the fish tale sentiment in the center.  I added a couple of adhesive dots on the edges to lift it slightly and keep it angled.  Then I added this strip to the bottom of the card base. 

When everything was secured, then I added the two coke bottles at the right edge of the shaker box, overlapping slightly, using bits of foam on the edge to keep them secure and raised where needed. 

I leave all my card blank in side as I encourage my customers to write in them rather than depending on a stamped sentiment.  Not sure what she wrote but he sure does look like he was pleased, as this is the photo I received Sunday night. 

 Makes me so happy to be able to be a part of these special celebrations.  Thanks be to God for allowing me to have this talent.  For without HIM I could do nothing!
