Dad - Father's day card

Good Morning all and welcome to a new week.  

Boy was it hot at the weekend, so i hope you all managed to keep cool, we had the fans going full blast, but of course its ideal hay and silage making weather so the family is busy making the most of the sunshine.  

So today im sharing the card i made for my dad for Father's day.  Its using the diamond fold card die set from tattered lace.

Taking an A4 sheet of white card i used the main die and cut it into the card 3 times, with a slight gap between them, then some jiggery pokery and good scoring of the fold lines it all folded up in the right places, this takes some patience but worth it.  I then cut the wood  paper panels, i used cork for the 'dad' which i cut out with a bigz die.  

Showing it side on and that it stands up easily on its own, but i didn't add to many heavy embellishments

Showing the back, i used another wood grain paper, here i added my sentiment and greeting

Just showing the embellishment close up, i covered chipboard hexagons with metal rust effect paper and crackle accents, once dry i added the screw top brads.  

Items Used:
Papermania 'Mr Smiths workshop' papers
Tattered lace 'diamond fold card' die set
Sizzix Tim Holtz ' word play' bigz die
Ranger crackle accents
