Hi there Helmar fans, Carole here again. Can you believe it's almost June already! It's time to start thinking about all those Dads and Grads. I thought I'd get a jump start on things this year and start making my Father's Day cards. In our family there are four father's to honor. I have two father-in-laws, my own dad, and my sweet hubby. Do you make your own cards for these special occaisions? I only recently started making more cards. I can't stand the thought of paying upwards of five dollars for a card when I can make something myself that is personalized! The card I'm sharing with you today was made using Helmar's Acid Free Glue, Helmar Zap Dots, and some Helmar Scrap Dots.
I used Helmar Acid Free Glue to create the little paper bead on the rope. I also adhered everything down to my card base with the acid free glue, including a small dot of glue on the dog's nose to apply some black flocking.
The oh so fabulous Helmar Scrap Dots was used here to raise my letters and I love how easy Scrap Dots make it to add dimension to finely cut letters. It's also nice not to have to dice up my Zap Dots so I can save them for larger elements.
So will you be making some Father's Day cards someday soon? I hope so, men like homemade gifts too and it's a good reason to bust out the glue stash and play!! My only problem ever in card making is...now how do I fit into the envelope? Hahaaha!
