Fathers Day Card

Here i have a Fathers day card i made , i dont normally make these types of cards unless asked as i dont have anyone to give it to .
 I saw a card this shape on the net and thought it looked different and thought i would have a go at making one myself , so here it is , I was surprised how easy it was to make and i enjoyed making it ..

The papers i used were a freebie from Crafters Companion , the colours are really gorgeous , and i am sure i will use them often ......

 I have had to take quite a few pictures as it was a little difficult to show all sides of the card .

I started with an a4 card blank , scored at tri-fold , then cut a peice off each end from the top to the middle to make it slope . The fancy top was cut from another peice of card , i cut the fancy edge at the from by drawing around the largest of my Spellbinders label sixteen die , i had to draw the middle bit then move the die over to the edge and join up to get that shape .

I matted 2 lots of the paper onto the sides at the front added the greeting strips and guitars on the right side and small triangles spelling the word Dad on ther left side ....

The front top was matted also with 2 co-ordinated papers , then the image was added . I went around the edge with my pokie tool to make holes and used a Sakura pen so it looks like faux stitching , then the faux buttons were added , to which i threaded some string through the holes and tyed in a knot .

The middle of the card was finished off with papers that matched the front with a large topper , which i think is lovely , it says

Perfect DAD Recipe
1,  Good Listener
2, Great Advice
3,  Best Friend ......

With another greeting along the bottom .

I am entering this card in the following challenges --------       Happy Fathers Day
