Dad's Birthday

My dad's birthday is the 22nd of this month and I thought this would be a great card for him!  I was inspired by the card I saw on Pinterest.  The cut file was a freebie from Miss Kate Cuttables, but can now be purchased for $.50.  I imported it into Sihouette Studio, traced, and cut it out on Recollections silver foil paper.  The blue and gray cs is from The Paper Studio, striped DP from DCWV The Christmas Stack, and white cs from my stash.  I heat embossed the Happy Birthday with silver embossing powder, tumbled glass distress ink, and silver brads from my stash.

  6. I love your cut reindeer, what a great idea to use it for your father's birthday card. I've only used reindeer for Christmas cards, but I will certainly remember to use them for other occasions as well.
