Happy Fathers Day! A cricut/scal card

I made this card for my Dad for Father's Day. Now let me confess, I have had my cricut and the software progam Sure Cuts A Lot since Christmas and never just sat down to figure it out. Well...I had this specific card I wanted to make for my Dad...he loves antique or classic cars so I knew he would like this card!

Through trial and error and some help from Jamie and Diane(thanks again) and this tutorial from Lauren Meader HERE, I managed to "get 'er done"!  I learned a lot and  managed to cut, flip, resize by percentage, break apart, ungroup and group and weld all from this one video tutorial. I am so excited to learn  how to do these basic functions...now if I can just remember how I did it all. (you should see the pile of poor trucks that didn't pass my final test LOL...looks like a wrecking  yard for sure!) 

I guess one thing I learned is to be careful when adding glue...I have lots of little smudges and alignment issues that bug me, but my Dad won't have a clue LOL! Live and learn!

You can see in the picture below that I flipped and welded the truck for a mirror image to make it a card that will open and stand up on it's own. How fun! Inside it says Happy Father's Day....you are a real Classic!



Now if you look further down you will see what he gets along with his truck...his favorite treat ever!


You can find the recipe for this kitchen aide fudge on my blog HERE.  You can also go to my labels at the right in my blog and click on Cookies to find lots of goodies!

Hope you all have a wonderful day...Don't forget that tomorrow is a new challenge at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge! See ya there!

Awesome Sue! I downloaded some SCAL files from My Scrap Chick to make a tool themed card for my husband. I don't know all the ins and outs of SCAL yet either so I'm gonna have to check out those tutorials. Thanks for sharing the cool card and the link to help!

I agree! Awesome job on this. I need to get the software for my Cricut. Lauren has several things I'd like to purchase whenever I get the software.
