May Cards Class - Card #1

Have you seen the new "Indie Chic" line from My Mind's Eye?
It's pretty cool!
My favorite thing about this line is that it has the really thick paper that is done so well by MME.

The store I teach at got the entire line in stock so I chose some for my first card.

I usually choose 5 patterns of a coordinating line to do stripes with.
I had some really gorgeous yellow polka dot from My Mind's Eye, Lost and Found 2 line.
I decided to put that with the new patterns of this line. I also had some blue cardstock on my desk that matched perfectly!!
Love that!

So I laid them out, trying to find a good design.
I also had these little wood banners on my desk that I love and wanted to make something like them for the sentiment.

So here's my finished card! I gave the students a choice of 3 sentiments, in case they didn't have a Dad of their own to give it to. It could just be for a friend who is a Dad.
I also included a great poem inside, I found in a card from Dollar Tree. It says:

Hope your Father's Day bring you
a lot to smile about, a lot to be proud of
and a lot to make you happy you're a Dad.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!!

Great card Tracie,

Beautiful color combo, Tracie! Love the stacked pieces of PP. This is would be great to do with scraps too. :)
