Cards Inspiration with Alicia!

Hi there, Alicia with you today for Quick Quotes and this week we are featuring a Father's Day theme.  
I think that the Gypsy Road 300 with the vintage cars just screams Father's Day!  It was the first thing I thought of to tackle this assignment. I just upgraded my Cricut to an Explore so I started searching for Father's Day images on Cricut Design Space.  By the way, Quick Quotes papers cut like a dream on the card stock setting.

The first card features a cut from a cartridge I own, Artfully Sent.  It was very easy to cut and assemble. I added pop dots to the hat/mustache/bow tie.  I also added some additional die cuts to dress it up a bit. And inked it all up with Midnight Confessions PowderPuff Chalking Ink.  I am sending this one to my Dad.

I cut this image from Design Space because it had a retro feel and popped it up. I used a Tim Holtz edge die on the paper and again added some gear and car die cuts with some neat brads.  I will be giving this one to my Father in law.

This image seemed a bit more modern but with the addition of screw head brads and black "stud" ribbon, I think it turned out very neat looking.
