Gumball Treats for Dad

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit with The Charmed Life Blog today. 

Hope you are enjoying the Spring weather in your neck of the woods. And, if it's not Spring type weather then hope you get to do something crafty today. 

I attended my niece's Baby shower today. It was such a nice event held at a local restaurant. They had us out on a covered patio area.  And it was such a warm day, so everyone was quite comfortable. She is due in July, and they opted not to find out what sex the baby is. They want to be surprised. I like that they are doing this. So many couples don't want the element of surprise. 

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog. Today for your viewing pleasure I have created a Father's Day card using the new Candy & Gumballs die. So, let's get started with some details on how I created my card.

Design Steps:
I had a card base and matching designer paper layer in my stash from a Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin kit.  I thought it would be perfect for a masculine card. And it would work well to display the Gumball machine die.
Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Designer Paper Layer: 4" x 5 1/4"
Circle: 2 1/2"
I cut my gumball machine in a color to match the card base. The gumballs are in coordinating colors.
Then for my sentiment, I computer generated this one. "Life is like bubblegum, Sweet at times, Sticky at others, and Best when shared". I used Andy font in 14 points and printed it out on the cardstock (pretty peacock- Stampin'- Up) that matched the designer paper.
Now that my card elements are prepared, I started card assembly. The designer paper layer is attached to the card base with dimensional adhesive.
The Gumball machine is attached to the circle layer with dimensional adhesive. I also used dimensional adhesive on the circle layer and laid it back in the die cut opening.
To finish off my card front, I cut the sentiment into strips and attached to the designer paper layer.
I also stamped my Father's Day sentiment on the card inside. I added a few of the leftover gumballs just for added interest.
That's my card for this post. So, until next time.........God Bless.
