Father's Day

It's just around the corner. My hubby loves to save his pennies, so I now love to find the great sales, who doesn't really. But he still says, 'you'd save me more money if you didn't go shopping at all :)' Probably sounds familiar to a lot of you. Anywho, save money and make him a special handmade card -
This card was done at my recent workshop. We made a pocket card using Bashful Blue for the base, Chocolate chip for the horizontal strip across and So Saffron layered on top of that. We took the So Saffron piece and stamped it with the background striped stamp from the Dads Day set in So Saffron Ink. A little tricky b/c of the vertical stripes, mine came out a little crooked, but it gives it a little character :) Then we stamped out Happy Dads Day in Chocolate Chip and punched it out with the Designer Label Punch.
To make the pocket part, I used my Corner Rounder on all four corners then folded my Bashful Blue in half. Then took about 1" and folded that down. Behind that flap, I adhered the back and front side of the card with a dimensional on each side. You've now kreated your pocket. Then I took a piece of Very Vanilla and rounded the corners with the Corner Punch again to be the insert in our pocket card. I punched a small 1/8" Circle at the top to thread a piece of Bashful Blue ribbon in. Took a Silver Brad and pierced it through the ribbon to keep it together and kreate the 'pull'. In Bashful Blue I inked up my sentiment to finish off the card. One of the ladies in my group had a great idea - she was going to place a small picture of her husband and daughter on the insert for him to pull up. Great thinkin' Hope you like it!
For now, go kreate
