Father's Day

Afternoon Guys!
How are we all? I hope all is well.  Well life has still been getting in my way and I've been a very naughty blogger of late and I haven't been here for so long but I though as I'm on a day off I would share the card I made my Dad for Father's Day.

It was pretty apt as he's always reaching into this for me, poor Dad! 
I used kraft card to make a card that looked like a wallet!!  I distressed this with Tea Dye & Gathered Twigs distress inks.  I I used a white gel pen to add faux stitching and some small brads to the corners.  I printed some plaid paper from the Tweedies CD ROM.  I stamped  Dad onto this and fussy cut it and went over with the same distress inks.

For the inside
I added a smaller piece of card - to make it look like it was pockets, then I added a Father's Day greeting which I printed onto white card and die cut with a Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die.  I added a heart die cut in the plaid paper and distressed both of them with the distress inks.  On the right-hand side I added a smaller piece of card to make another pocket - and into here I added a photo of me and my Dad - awwwwww! And stamped the "With love from me to you".

I die cut a smaller stitched rectangle and added my message and popped that into the pocket too!!

Here's the photo I put inside!!
We were on holiday on a Norwegian Fjords Cruise - hence the waterproofs!!

A pretty niffy idea if I do say so myself - so thanks Pinterest for showing me this idea!!

I'm off now to dance round the house like a loon while I blast 100% Clubland LOL and do some hoovering while I'm at it!!
