Fantastic Dad

Hello there, today I have a bit of a different card to share with you. This is the card that I made for my dad for Father's Day. He is a fan of comedy so I thought it would be good to make him a punny card. I didn't have an image or sentiment in stamps so I turned to my Cricut Maker to help me make the card.
I started off by cutting the fan. I found a fan cutting file from Etsy and cut this from Doodlebug Cardstock (sadly now discontinued) and cut this using the Cricut Maker. I didn't cut all the layers of the fan, just the main body in black, the top part in white and the little inside piece in aqua. I assembled the pieces using liquid glue and set them aside.
I took another piece of the aqua cardstock and cut this using a Hero Arts Nesting Circle Infinity Die. To add some dimension to it, I blended ink around the edges. I first used Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and then added a very small amount of Black Soot Distress Ink around the very outer edges. This was added to a white 4" x 5.5" white card base so that it was hanging off the edge.
I then added the fan on top with liquid glue. I created the sentiment in Cricut Design Space using the font Algebra. This was then made using a Cricut 0.4 Black Pen in the Cricut Maker. I cut the sentiments out and adhered them to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the aqua centre piece on the fan.

A very CAS card but my dad did like it, thank goodness! Thank you so much for popping by to see me today. I hope you have a great day and a wonderful week!
