I am way behind in making cards for Father's day, so I decided this past weekend to get a couple done. The first one that I made was awful, LOL, so I tossed it. Then I made this one that I love, love, love....
I used two Cricut cartridges, Paper Doll Dress Up and Create A Critter 2 to cut out the card base and all the accessories. Then I stamped the sentiment on the inside and layered everything together, using foam tape for the necktie and collar. This way I can tuck the top of the vest under it and help to keep the card closed. I finished by cutting the vest in the middle so that it would open it. I really like how it turned out.

I came back from camp to find that I made the top cut at the Cut It Up Challenge Blog - Father's Day challenge. I'm always excited when I do well in challenges.
My name is JoNeita Kelly and I have been crafting for at least the last 20 years. I live in Cedar Park, Texas with my son, Dallas. I love to craft and to continue to improve my photography and editing skills whenever I have free time. What I love most is telling our story using pictures, it is the most important gift I can leave my family.
