Packed for Dad

Hi Stampers!
I've been stamping up a storm lately but I've had a funny dilemma- the cards I've stamped have been for people/occasions coming up, the recipients may read this blog, and I don't want them to see the cards BEFORE they receive them in the mail!  It's made posting a little difficult!  So I stamped more!  That's not a bad thing.
I stamped a card for the SUO Challege #43, Occasions mini catalog goodbye.  It is time for a more masculine card so I used my Packed for Dad stamp for a father's day card.  This is a stamp that either stands alone, or if you want all four Packed for... stamps, you can get a 25% discount.  You can check these out here.  Here is the card I came up with:
I cased the layout from the card on page 90 of the catalog, but of course I gave it my own twist.  If you look closely  you can see that I used the Packed for Dad stamp as the background.  I usually go for random stamping but I thought is was important that the background look uniform so I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to really line things up.  I used the SAMJ again to line up the "happy father's day" since I was on a roll.  This is such a great tool to use that maybe I will try to do a tutorial for you all to see how well it works later in the week.  Check back for that!
Now is the time to check out the Occasions Mini before it goes away- you can download it HERE, as well as the other catalogs.  Our 2011-2012 is retiring on May 30th this year instead of June 30th so you may want to check that out as well!  Did you download the retiring list yet?  You can get that HERE.
Thanks for stopping by!
