From All of Us

Last week was my Dad's birthday and I made him this adorable card from my family. I used the fun All in the Family stamp set from SU! and the All in the Family Sentiments. I had a little trouble matching up the arms and heads to the bodies at first, but then I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig and it was so easy! I think that this is our first "family portrait" since the baby was born! I made the card long enough to fit into a legal size envelope, I had some colored envies that I had bought and I figured I would need to make the card long to fit all 7 of us and our cat! I think it is fun to make this size card, it is different and unexpected.
I used my SU! scallop punch and circle punches for mounting the sentiment. The solid cardstock is SU! and the patterned paper is from Pink Cat Studio.
Hope you enjoyed, thanks for looking!

Your family portrait looks like mine! I have 5 children as well with the youngest 10 months old. I also stamped our "family portrait" on the back of the envelopes for our Christmas cards. It took forever!
