Another Father's Day Card

I was challenged this week to make a shaker box card, AND to "Man Up" for the Squigglefly Challenge blog, so I merged the two requirements into one card!

The digi image is a May release from Squigglefly called Mad Hatter by artist Daphne van der Zandem.  I colored him with my trusty Copics and then fussy cut him out.

Then I used some Stampin Up circle dimensional tape to make my shaker box.  I have a background stamp of various sizes and styles of clocks, so I used one from which to build my shaker box.  A few foam beads and a piece of acrylic cut to size and my shaker box is part of the inside of my card, with a circular window cut from the card front so it peeks through.

I adhered my Mad Hatter as if he were balancing on the clock (don't you love his bunny slippers?) and hand-penned the sentiment.  The inside finishes off the sentiment "Time to celebrate...a great Dad"  My daughter loves this card and will probably snag it from me to add to his present on Father's Day.

You still have time to join in the Squigglefly challenge this week.  Just use a Squigglefly digi image and follow the theme of a "manly card" for your chance to win!  Good luck, and happy crafting!
