BBQ Dad Step Card…

Hey there my crafty friends, I’m super excited to share my very first card as a new member of the Paper Crafting World Design Team.  Since Father’s Day is this weekend, I thought I’d share a card made just for the Dad’s out there.

My card features the King Of The Grill digi file.

I started out by cutting the center-step card base.  I used a template and my Cricut cutting machine to make it a little easier.  All the cut and score lines are already measured out and all I have to worry about is folding it.

I printed the BBQ and Bear and then cut them with my Cricut. Easy Peesy!

I used Google’s advanced search (filtering the usage rights to images labeled for non-commercial reuse) and found a few pieces of clipart to add to the backyard scene.  Although the PCW pieces were already colored, I used my Copics to go over everything and added a little texture and highlights to some areas. 



I hope you enjoyed my first card as a new PCW DT member.  If you’d like to learn how to make a basic center-step card, click HERE for written directions.  If you are more of a visual learner, click HERE.

Check out this bonus card I made just for my blog.  I used the Bear Top Pop file for this card.
