Tri-shutter Father's Day Card

This Father's Day card was inspired by the current Heart2Heart Challenge which called for projects with random stamped backgrounds.  I started with the images from our "Star Struck" stamp set and then filled in with words from "Checklist".  After I made a 12x12 sheet, I cut two card bases for a pair of tri-shutter cards (one went to my Dad already for Father's Day and the other I'll give as an option to my kids when they are card shopping in my craft room for Father's Day cards for my husband).
I used a chipboard dimensional element for the front of the card - I simply embossed the saying with White Daisy powder, inked over it and then put a thick layer of Liquid Glass on top and let it dry.  I untwisted a couple of spiral clips and added some velvet ribbon for texture.

The thing I like the most about this card is that when it is folded flat, the arrow on top points to "World's Best Dad" but when you open the card up, the arrow points to "Happy Father's Day".  I thought that was a fun touch!


Thanks for stopping by!

My kids love to "shop" from my card basket too! At least they'e learned to ask permission first. ;) You've created a wonderful card for the special men in your life. I really like the arrow accent. Thanks for sharing it with us at H2H!
