Super Dad

With Father's Day just around the corner, I pulled out one of my favorite digis, Huge Hero by KennyK, to make a funny card.


The duct tape piece is what was left on the roll...you know, after the sticky part's gone, some is stuck onto the cardboard roll? Well, I peeled that off and embossed it in my BigShot with a TH embossing folder. The birdie banner is Washi Tape.

The sentiment is from a Teddy Bo & Co. set (free with an issue of Simply Cards & Papercraft), and the airplane is a brad from my stash. I edged the skyline with a silver Sharpie.

Last year, my brother-in-law hired me to make some Thank-you cards for his Chiropractic office. He sent me the files for his logo, based on the Orlando skyline, and I have several pieces left over. You can read the whole story, and see similar projects, in this post.
