Before you put your card together, attach your outline stickers to your glitter paper, color them and cut them out. I used 2 birds, 2 wings, 1 tree and 3 leaves.

For my base, I used a navy blue card stock. Score your base at 3 1/2, 7 1/2 and 9″. Fold your score lines. For my embellishment papers, I used the Fair Skies paperback by Farm House Paper. Attach to the base. Attach your large hill to the green background and then pop up your smaller hill.

I used foam tape to pop up my tree, leaves and bird on the hill.Attach your front bird to your floral paper. I attached my doily tape to my floral piece and embellished with twine and pearls.

For my sentiment, I stamped “Hello” from the Soaring Above Collection by The Rubber Cafe in white ink. Layer your banner tags and attach to the card. Finish off with your greeting.

Have a great rest of the week! Don’t forget to share your sunshine.

Father’s Day Double Pocket Card

As promised, the Father’s Day double pocket card. If you didn’t see yesterday’s post, the template comes from Hot Off The Press at Paper Wishes http://www.Paperwishes.com  

I wanted to make cards this year that each child could create a piece of. I thought these pockets were perfect. I created a tag for each child to decorate and write their special message to Daddy. I did stencil the backgrounds to give them a little flare 🙂 The pockets can also be used to tuck gift cards into.

FYI, the card can be folded flat to mail. The finished card measures 3.75 x 5.5″

Check back on Wednesday for the Best Dad Double Pocket Card.
