 If you came from " Sheri" of " Just scrap It "  then you are in the right place! 

I racked my inner brain to try to figure out what to do for this blog hop and then I came up with doing something I had not tried before. I went through our Artiste Cricut Cartridge and came upon a card I had been wanting to try that would would work for Father's day. It is listed on page 75 of the Artiste handbook.
I used the tie and pocket on one of the cards. I also used some retired plaid paper for some of the shirt cards and our current Balloon ride paper for one of the shirt cards. My Dad is definitely gonna love this card as he is a shirt and tie kinda guy.
He just turned 86 and passed his driver's test again! I plan to visit him Sunday. The other cards are for my hubby,son-in-law and a friend. I used My Hero stamp set and You're the best-Holiday stamp set for some of the cards. 
The Happy Father's day sentiment was cut out from Artiste cartridge as well. These cards are perforated and scored so that the collars fold down so nicely and so easily. I usually don't attempt cards with folds but I am hooked on this one and will use this card template for future birthday cards.

Here is the base card cut from page 75 using the card button. I cut it at 5.50 inches










Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is " Lynette" of " C1make1 ".
