Clare often struggles to make cards for the men in her life.  There just doesn't seem to be many paper crafting products geared for the men.  So, Clare took a look at what she had on hand to make this year's Father's Day card. 
She started with a masculine pattern:  the argyle, which she cut with the Cricut Wild Card Cartridge.  To get the yellow diamonds, she just cut a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" rectangle.  She then cut the larger diamond image from the Cricut Wild Card cartridge in the blue card stock, and the smaller, more detailed diamond image in the brown card stock.  She then cut the Super Dad shield in the Art Glitter Sticky paper using the Cricut Father's Day cartridge.  This is one of Clare's must have adhesives/card stock and she loves cutting it with her Cricut and her Silhouette!  Clare says be sure to place the red printed image of the sticky paper right side up on the mat when you are using a word, so it is not backwards! Ultrafine Opaque Glitter.
Here is another tip, glue the Art Glitter sticky paper onto your project first so that you won't disturb the glitter after you apply it!  She then applied the sticky paper shield to a blue cardstock mat.
Once the glue was dry on the back of the Super Dad shield, Clare peeled off the red protective layer on the Art Glitter sticky paper and applied the 343 Chestnut Ultrafine Glitter.
She assembled the argyle card base and using the Art Glitter Dries Clear glue, she added dots at the intersections to pull the whole project together.  She added an American Crafts ribbon and placed glue dots on the back of the shield image.
