Gumball Treats for Father's Day

Hello CottageCutz friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog.

It's new release time!!! We have new dies in the online store. It's our Sweet Treats release with 13 new designs. They are so perfect for any card making occasion you may have. The individual dies are currently 30% off.

Today for your viewing pleasure I have created a Father's Day card using the new Candy & Gumballs die. So, let's get started with some details on how I created my card.

Design Steps:
I had a card base and matching designer paper layer in my stash that I thought would be perfect for a masculine card. And it would work well to display the Gumball machine die. 
Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Designer Paper Layer: 4" x 5 1/4"
Circle: 2 1/2"
I cut my gumball machine in a color to match the card base. The gumballs are in coordinating colors. 
Then for my sentiment, I computer generated this one. "Life is like bubblegum, Sweet at times, Sticky at others, and Best when shared". I used Andy font in 14 points and printed it out on the cardstock (pretty peacock- Stampin'- Up) that matched the designer paper. 
Now that my card elements are prepared, I started card assembly. The designer paper layer is attached to the card base with dimensional adhesive. 
The Gumball machine is attached to the circle layer with dimensional adhesive. I also used dimensional adhesive on the circle layer and laid it back in the die cut opening. 
To finish off my card front, I cut the sentiment into strips and attached to the designer paper layer. 

I also stamped my Father's Day sentiment on the card inside. I added a few of the leftover gumballs just for added interest. 
That's my card for this week. I hope I have given you an idea for a way to use the new Candy & Gumballs die. See you next Saturday!

What a great card for Father's Day! I may have to C.A.S.E. this one! My hubby loves gumballs and even has a gumball machine! I agree, this is a great sentiment!
