Printed Paper, Blue Shirt Tail Plaid
Printed Paper, Green Crackle
JoAnn's Scrap Essentials: Dad phrase sticker

Playing Card
Exacto knife

I started out cutting from cardstock (Bo-Bunny Press) a piece that measures 8" long and 5 1/2" wide. I then scored down the middle and folded my card making it a vertical fold card. I added a piece of printed paper (Bo-Bunny Press) measuring 3" wide by 4" long and adhered (Click n Stick) it to the bottom half of my card. Next came my altered playing card. I covered (Memory Tape Runner) the card in printed paper (B-Bunny Press), then inked the edges with black (Ancient Page). I then took my chipboard letter "d" and covered (Memory Tape Runner) it in printed paper (Bo-Bunny Press), used an exacto knife to cut from the backside the negative space out, then inked the edges (Ancient Page) and adhere it to the altered card (Memory tape Runner). I then adhered the altered card (Click n Stick) to the top 3/4 of my card overlapping the brown printed paper along the bottom. I then cut a strip (approx. 1/8" by 4") of Printed paper (Bo-Bunny Press, Blue Jean) and overlapped the altered card and printed paper a bit . I used the lock nailhead (JoAnn's Scrap Essentials) on the strip and slightly overlapping the altered card as well to tie everything in and anchor my elements together (an exacto knife is good here to punch through the altered card for the nailhead). All that was left was for me to use the TLC black alphabet stickers to complete the word "dad" and then to choose the Happy Father's Day sticker (JoAnn's) , ink it and adhere it to the bottom half of the page.
