Magazine Challenge Letter Envy




OK I must admit - I've been playing with Letter Envy A LOT!!! I love the font.
I figured that I would go ahead and get a jump start on Father's day so I made this cute little "DAD" mini album. I love using my Gypsy and when she was gone to the Dr. I just missed her. I did really :)

I used Letter Envy - for the DAD w/ the font and Shadow. These letters are cut at 4.04" for the D's and 3.45" for the A. I turned off the link so I could make them fit my album better.
The base is a rectangle from Cricut Font and Basic Shapes They are sized to overlap slightly for the previous letter.
They are all 4" high.
I welded the letters to the rectangle and using the page function on the gypsy added another layer so I could see where the previous one lined up.

I cut all the letters/rectangles (welded) 2 times out of thick craft card stock. I then glued together to make it sturdy. 

I then did the font function - and cut the letters in the pretty green/gold paper - from SEI Kris Kringle line.

The mats are all cut 1/2" smaller than the initial size from the Cricut Font and basic.

The envelope is cut from Stand and Salute at 5" so when folded it would fit onto the back of the mat. I'll tuck a little note inside and/or a GC for him for Father's Day.

I wanted to keep this simple - after all it's for my Daddy. I had some "Dad stickers from Bo- Bunny" and I added them I thought they were perfect.
The little saying on the "A" page is 100% true. My daddy will always have a special place in my heart. He was the first guy I loved!!!

I added a photo of my daddy holding me a long time ago - this happens to be one of my favorite photos of my daddy.

Hope you enjoy and
Happy Scrappin'
