Fathers Day Card for Dad
Posted by Tigerprawn, 19 Jun, 2010
Found the coffee coloured tall card in a papermania 3 pack of different cream shades - I must have got it in a goody bag or similar. I made an origami shirt and tie topper using an A6 piece of paper for the shirt and a 5cm square of paper for the tie. I cut a circle of gold paper using the outside edge of the smallest xcut circle stencil and inked the edges before glueing the shirt on. Just used some brown grosgrain and plain beige ribbon on the card. went a bit wibbly so stuck some buttons on(Dad won't mind!). Then I dropped the ink pad and caught the edge of the card so decided to ink around the whole edge rather than throw it away. I wrote the message on cream card then mounted on a bit more of the same gold paper and then again onto some cream. Apart from the shirt, I tried to stay away from doing nearly everything blue, which is a trap I have fallen into before with Dad cards!
