A Cool Dad


Now I saw this card on Kath's blog and thought it was so clever and wondered how I could make a similar card. I worked out that I had a hat and glasses from a Avery Elle Hipster-Potamus set but I didn't have a moustache. Obviously haven't kept up with the latest trends!
Then I had a lightbulb moment the Simon Says Stamp Exclusive die Harrington Vine had a tiny swirl half way, up its stem. So I cut two, yes one side isn't the best side and there is join but from a distance you can't see it. The papers were leftovers on my desk possibly from Studio Calico and the letters were cut using a Cricut except Dad which were some letters in my stash. The glasses have glossy accent on them to make them look like glass but it doesn't look that obvious.
Rather pleased how I was able to replicate the COOL.
