Happy Birthday Dad

It is that time of year again. It is time for my father's birthday. There is a new Hostess Rewards stamp set in the 2015-16 Annual Inspirations that was perfect for his birthday. Unfortunately I can only show you a peek at the stamp set; I will post a full photo early in September.

I was inspired by the On The Ball™ pattern on page 47 of Wishes™ (I have the hardcover version).

Instead of creating a 7" x 5" card, I used a 5½" x 4¼" Colonial White Card from the Value Pack as my card base. Also, instead of using the template from Wishes™, I put a 5½" x 4¼" rectangle on my virtual mat added two circles and then used the slice feature to create the partial circles I cut from the cocoa side of the Jackson paper. I added the Black Arrow Washi Tape to the zip strip so it has a uniform look on the card front. I used my scissors to distress the edge of the circle.

I "free cut" the arrows/points to back the sentiment and I used the "leftover" arrow from the card front to underscore the sentiment.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart except where noted:
