I made this card for my father-in-law's birthday using one of my few remaining Lili of the Valley 'Vintage Boys' Art Pad images.
I die cut the precoloured image with a rectangle die, die cutting from both ends so I could elongate the shape. I then die cut 'DAD' from the lower corner and set the pieces aside. I trimmed a piece of wood effect paper so it was slightly smaller than the card blank and attached it to a thin piece of white card. I then die cut an elongated rectangle from the centre, ensuring it was the same size as my topper. I attached the frame to the card and inlaid the image. I die cut 'DAD' twice from white card, layered these before inlaying them into the image and attaching the coloured sentiment on the top.
