WMS April Sneak Peek Day 3 - Man of the Hour

Welcome to the 3rd and final day of the Waltzingmouse Sneak Peeks!  Tomorrow the Design Team will be having our release day blog waltz and all of the new sets will be available for purchase - do you have your wish list made yet??! 

Today we are creating inspiration with a wonderful 14 sentiment set called Man of the Hour honoring all the dads - for Father's Day, birthdays or just celebrating that man in our lives!

For my first project,  I made a poster style card front, again using a photo of my sweet little grand niece, Mila, (see yesterday's post if you missed it!) this time she's with her adoring dad, Greg. 
Sweet Mila definitely has her dad wrapped around her little finger (as well as the rest of our family!)
I attached the card to an easel back that I cut out of grungeboard using a Tim Holtz die. It's a great way to display this 'thickish' creation and it will fold flat for mailing if necessary.

I  wanted to participate in today's Friends of WMS Blog Party as well - and the subject this month is Spring Flowers -  hopefully the felt flowers qualify!  Come along to the party with us!  See all the details on the WMS blog here
I used Romantic Rectangles and Floral Doily Motifs for the die cuts on this.

And next up -  I used Claire's fun little Fairy House Box Template (free in the WMS shop!) that I cut with my Silhouette Cameo to make a cute little gift box for The Best Dad Ever for his Birthday!
 The Best Dad and Happy Birthday sentiments are from Man of the Hour -  I stamped and cut out the door  from the cottage in A Cottage Home set - I added a little brad for the door knob.
 
Wouldn't this sentiment make Dad feel like he was really loved?!!

I die cut the Happy Birthday Banner with Lacey Pennants and the sentiment with Labels 22.
And here's a quick view with the top off so you can see the little box you can slip some treats into!

Now it's time to shuffle off to see all the other DT projects!

Oh Julia - where to start? I love the card for your son - so smart to put it on an easel (now I need that die by the way) because you know it's going on display as soon as it hits his house! And the house box? So cool! Who wouldn't love to receive that?

Annette said...

Love the idea to use the die to make the post instantly displayable! Both your projects are just beautiful!

Kelly S. said...

Oh my adorableness! Is that even a word? Had to make up something special for this cutie pie and her dad! I love the way you cut the photos out and the sponging on the label makes the sentiment pop even more. Then you went and made that sweet house for a double round of cuteness! You really can shape paper into anything...all hail the Queen of Templates! :)XO

Pat (mspfd) said...
