Father's Day Card - UPDATED

**I AM SO EXCITED!  THIS CARD WAS HIGHLIGHTED IN THE CRICUT CHIRP NEWSLETTER ON JUNE 15, 2010 (VOL. 212)!!**

My father is an architect and so I wanted to try one of those unusual cards and opted to go with the Tri-shutter card.  Thanks to this website I got the needed instructions to make it.  I really like the way it turned out and am planning to utilize their instructions to attempt some of the other cards featured in the near future.

For this project I used:
Cricut Cartridges: Create a Critter (owl), Calligraphy Collection (Happy Fathers Day), Beyond Birthdays (Dad), and Wall Décor and More (mushroom)
Paper: Stampin’ Up! Soft Suede, MME Magnolia, and DCWV Rock Star.

I hope he likes the card.  I decided that I wanted it to be simply say Happy Father’s Day and chose not to put a sentiment in the card.  I mean, really, most men don’t care for sappy sentiments, right?  I know my dad doesn’t.  What he will know is what the mushroom means…Dad’s of girls are like mushrooms, they are kept in the dark and fed a bunch of B-S,  hahahaha!
