Dad

I made this card for my father-in-law on Father's Day.  I'm entering Crafty Cardmakers 'For a Man/Boy' challenge and Cardz 4 Guys 'Father's Day' challenge,  I'm also entering the Die Cuttin' Divas 'Masculine or Father's Day' challenge.


Card blank: 7" x 5" white matt
Image: Making Cards 'Landscapes'
Die: Creative Expressions 'From the Heart - Male Relations'
Card: Brown matt
Paper: Making Cards 'Landscapes'

I trimmed the orange paper, layered it onto brown card and attached it to the card front.  I trimmed the image slightly and layered it onto brown card before die cutting 'Dad' from the top corner.  The panel was then attached to the centre of the card.  I attached a small piece of brown card onto a piece of paper (to ensure the same thickness as the image paper and matting layer) before die cutting 'Dad' and inlaying it into the card.  To finish I rolled my brayer across the die cut to ensure it was secure.
