Welcome Stampin' Friends!
I know it is a little late to post a Father's Day card! On Father's Day weekend we went camping with my in-laws, so that means I did not see my Dad on Father's Day. So, we celebrated this past Saturday. I was so pleased with the card I made for him and just had to share it!
I guess this might need a little explaining. My Dad is a big Eeyore fan and does his voice really good. Often he talks like Eeyore when something doesn't go his way, which might have happend more than usual with a house of all girls. With four girls plus my Mom, he was way out numbered!!! I thought my saying for the card front was perfect for our one week late celebration of Father's Day. I got the idea on this particular Eeyore from Ellen Kemper (queen of punch art, in my book). Thanks Ellen!
Here is what I did to make my Eeyore (all the blue pieces are Marnia Mist):
Body = 1-3/4" Circle Punch and the Wide Oval Punch layered behind the circle.
Neck = Large Oval Punch layered behind the Wide Oval Punch of the body.
Mane = four petal flower from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack, layered behind the neck and an additional 2 for the tuff of hair on his head from Basic Black.
Muzzle = 1-3/8 Circle Punch from Sahara Sand, round the top of the circle with the Wide Oval.
Head = Wide Oval Punch, you may need to trim the sides in a little so that it matches the muzzle.
Eyes = Owl Punch - the heart, cut in half from Whisper White and 1/4" Circle Punch from Basic Black. You will also need a White Gel Pen to add the whites to his eyes.
Ears = Large Oval Punch cut in half, using a curvy cut and one Small Oval Punch from Rich Razzleberry also cut in half. Adhere the razzleberry piece to the back of the ear piece so that the rounded side shows.
Front leg = Modern Label Punch
Back leg = Large Oval Punch, cut the top off in a "s" shape to make the foot
Tail = using the negative piece of a small oval hand cut the tail
Hair for the Tail = Small Heart Punch, snip the top of the heart to look like hair, glue the point of the heart to the end of the tail.
Bow = Owl Punch, two hearts and one of the smallest eye pieces from Rich Razzleberry. Glue these on to cover the point of the hair on the tail.
Thumbtack holding tail = negative piece from Spiral Punch (retired) from Basic Gray
Now, go punch you an Eeyore, he would be great for a baby shower card as well!
