For a TEE-riffic Dad!

Hi, everyone.

Here to share my Dad's Father's Day card -- the "golfer" in my life.  :)

Distress Ink core paper; Recollections white and black
Paper Smooches or SU string/twine
Simon Says A2 curve die for hills; Creative Memories oval cutting system for hole;
EK hole punch for golf ball; hand cut flags
Hero Arts white dauber ink for clouds; IMAGINEcrafts Shimmer spritz on flag sticks
Recollection foam adhesive
There's a little Simon Says CREATE magic here -- the cloud technique, the A2 die hills, and the shimmery flag sticks.  :)

The card actually started as an A2. But, it looked about half sky, half golf course. So, I trimmed the sky half a couple of times to get more of a 1/3 to 2/3 ratio between sky and golf course. The tops of the hills were slightly sanded to help give them more of a visual separation. And, there's one layer of foam adhesive for the middle hill and a double layer for the lowest hill.

I like the overall design idea, and like most of the execution. Just not thrilled with the flags. Gonna have to work on that if I do any of these for OWH -- especially since handwritten sentiments aren't used for OWH cards.

Think that's it for now. Happy Father's Day to all the men in our lives.

Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
