CCMC-OCC5 Dapper Dad

Oh my!  Can you believe it?  We've come to the end of the Spring Edition of Create with Connie and Mary!  Our Design Team and Guest Designers did a wonderful job…we couldn't have done it without them!  And…thanks to our subscribers and supporters…we certainly do appreciate you!  Don't worry, our Spring Edition website will be up for a year…so you can refer back to the projects 24/7!  And…hey…if you thought about joining us and didn't…it's not too late!  You'll see ALL the projects ALL at once!  How fun!



We are finishing up our last day with a Sketch challenge for the Design Team.  No Inlinkz on this one since we are awarding the prizes on Sunday…but you can still use this fun sketch!  Check out Create with Connie and Mary to see what the Design Team did with it!



Here is my card using Dapper Dad.  My Club Members will think it looks familiar…we used the same colors and elements in a card they made on Thursday at Club!  I just tweaked the layout for them.



Here are the details:

  1. The base card is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 of Midnight Muse, folded in half.
  2. A 4 x 5 1/4 layer of Crumb Cake that is embossed with the Woodgrain Folder (still available!) and distressed with the Stampin' Distress Tool and sponged with Crumb Cake Ink around the edges and to highlight the Woodgrain embossed areas.
  3. Layer a 2 x 5 piece of Parker's Patterns DSP and corner round the left edges.
  4. Cut a 5 1/4" Early Espresso trim piece from Tasteful Trim XL Die and layer across the front.
  5. Stamp the watch image from Dapper Dad Stamp Set with Early Espresso Ink on Very Vanilla and cut with the second from smallest Oval Framelit.  Adhere on the third from smallest Oval of Cajun Craze. 
  6. Pierce a hole in the watch winder and add a Silver Brad thru both layers and a Rhinestone on the face of the watch.
  7. Distress the edges and sponge Crumb Cake around the edges of the ovals.  Place on the front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  8. Stamp Make a Wish from Sweet Essentials in Early Espresso Ink on 1/2" strip of Very Vanilla, sponge the edges with Crumb Cake, cut a flag end and tuck between the ovals.

I had a lot of fun with this sketch and I like how the ovals are off-set!  Again, make sure to check out the rest of the Design Team inspiration over on Create with Connie and Mary!
