Father's Day Card #2/ CWC Color Challenge #32,

Happy Friday Everyone! I finally had a chance to do a little crafty stuff. The kids are officially out of school as of last Friday and they are keeping me busy.

I got a Father's Day card done from my kiddos to my FIL. He LOVES golf. And, this is close to how his living room looks. His most favorite thing to do is have a cup of coffee in his fav. chair and watch golf on a Sunday afternoon with his chocolate lab "Captain" at his feet.
I entered this card in the Cooking With Cricut Color Challenge #32 and
Creative Cutter Room Father's Day Challenge

**In honor of National Gingersnap Day
, project needs to have at least 2 of the following colors. **
Tangerine – Orange
Cream - Vanilla
Ginger - Brown
Kraft, White or Black as accents if necessary
I didn't want to buy the Father's Day cart just because I wanted the recliner, game remote and the TV remote control. (I may regret next year not getting it). So, I creatively improvised!!


This is a beige 5x7 card.

I found some clip art for a TV, chair and remote that I downloaded, printed off on white cardstock and then traced onto tracing paper for the details. Then traced onto cardstock a couple more times and cut out. I wanted to add some depth by layering it 2 or 3x. And, I wanted the detail shadowing on the chair.

The chair I used brown and black watercolor pencils and brown chalk ink. I probably didn't do the best job, but it will work. This is the reason I don't have copics and stamp cards, I don't have the patience for it LOL (or the extra $).
The picture was some CM sticker print paper I have had FOOOORRREVVVER and I just cut a design out and stuck on a square of brown paper. The wallpaper is also CM sticker paper. The tan paper for the carpet is from Bazzil.

Carts: Table & lamp (both 1.6)--Serenade, Dog (.80)--Paper Pups, Books (1" and cut apart)--Locker Talk, Coffee mug( .50) and Square for Pillow (.45)--Gypsy Wanderings. The word "Golf" is from Nates ABC's (.50). Golfer (1.30)--Car Decals. I just inked the details like the shirt, hat, wheels and golf club.

The face for the golfer is a 3/8" from Peachy Keen--snow cuties. Cardstock colors are: Terra Cotta (for pot), 2 shades of green (plant), 4 shades of brown (lamp and table) Cream (lampshade) Brown (dog & picture) Kraft (for Golfer), Yellow (the word "Golf"), Black for TV
