Last Day of the Bug Hop and a new FCCB Challenge Me Monday Challenge.

It is the last day, but still time to join in on the fun fort he Grillin' & Chillin' Bug Hop
Click here for all the fun and details.

So, It's Monday and that means another Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday Challenge

This week it is about celebrating Dad. Time to get those Father's day cards done. Some of us on the DT are trying out a new Father's Day digi stamp from Whimsie Doodles. Thank you Whimsie Doodles for letting us play with these. 
These tickets are so cute. Hope over there to get yours now not to mention all the other adorable digi stamps they have for ya. 

So here is how I used the ticket digi stamp. 

It is hard to tell from this photo, but the tickets are slightly folded and perforated between each one. 

I took the digi stamp, sized it, and then copied and pasted a bunch together to get a whole strip of them before printing. Then I got out my trusty ladybug perforation tool and perf-scored (?) them. I did a larger size ticket for the inside of the card.

Here's How I did it....
Basic A2 card size.
Pattern papers from My Minds eye Stella and Rose mini paper stack
CM corner round punch for card and mat edges
Man/layers cut at 5" from Elmos Party, p. 45
Argyle Cuttlebug embossing folder on vest
Buttons and string from my stash
Digi stamps from Whimsie Doodles
