No 1 Dad

Hi Everyone

Today I can post the card that I made for Hubby on Father's Day - couldn't do it before as he takes a great interest in my blog, which is really nice. He was invaluable when I was setting up my blog - what a fab Hubby I have!!!

So here it is....
A wallet card.
I used plain brown card stock and trimmed it slightly larger than a real wallet. I then cut another piece slightly smaller and another smaller again.
I sponged both sides of all the card with Espresso Adirondack Ink. I also used this to ink the edges. I drew some faux stitching around the edges.
I used my Nesties to cut an oval in the smallest piece and stuck some acetate behind the oval. I then fixed a photograph of the boys behind this.

I made a pocket by cutting a small rectangle, which I inked & faux stitched as above. I used a circle punch to punch out a semi circle at the top and then stamped on a gold flourish. I stuck this in place using strong double-sided tape.
I made a ticket using the "No 1 Dad" Stamp and a hole punch and popped this in the small pocket.

I fixed all of the pieces together using strong double sided tape.
I stamped and embossed "No 1 Dad" on the front bottom right hand corner.
To finish it off, the boys wrote their own special messages on blank ATC's and we put these inside the wallet with some money.
Hope you like it - Hubby did!!!!
Thanks for dropping by.
