Cricut in Our Names Blog Hop Day #1





Hi Everybody!
Welcome to the Cricut in Our Names Blog Hop!  Hopefully you just came from visiting Erica over at My Cricut Craft Room.  If not, please head back there so you can start this hop from the beginning.  With Father's Day coming up, I have been making guy themed cards lately.  So I have one to share with you all today.  Now, onto my project!



*Father's Day Cricut cartridge
*Papertrey Ink - black card base
*DCWV - patterned paper
*Pink By Design - Gears background stamp
*Martha Stewart - glitter embossing powder
*Timeless Twine -  Black Coffee twine






*I stamped the background using Versamark Ink, and then sprinkled it with the glitter embossing powder. I love how the gears sparkle and shine!





*I thought this textured paper was perfect for this cut!




*The Father's Day cartridge is one of my all time favorites!  It's super simple to layer, and the cuts are a lot of fun :)


I hope you enjoyed my project!  Don't forget to come back tomorrow for DAY 2!!!  Now head on over to see
as the next stop in the hop!

**I am also entering this card in the following challenges:**


Bloggers - For the men
Crafts 4 Eternity #76 Male Cards
Fussy and Fancy #65 Boy Attitude
Simply Create Too - For a Male

  1. Absolute a lovely card but not for our challenge....which is EK in Orange (with a little black and/or white). EK stands for European Soccer Championship ;)

    We hope to see you back with one of your lovely cards in one of our next challenges.
