A Father's Day Commision

After bragging on facebook about how good my Father's Day card for Gwyn was, my friend asked if I would make one for her kiddies to give to their dad. So here it is! and I don't like to admit it but it turned out better than the original!!

The spiral card is what we did in craft class last Thursday so when I sat down to make a Father's Day I got all inspired LOL (I wish this would happen on a more regular basis!)

The front I kept pretty simple as the inside is so busy. I stamped Amazing Duo in versa fine ink and coloured then in using a mixture of Promarkers and Polychromo's. The sentiment is stamped in Cherry Red Staz On and layered a few times with Bazzill/Coredinations. Red doodlebug Rub ons were also used.

On the inside I really went to town. The yellow DP was only 8x8 so it came up short so I added a strip of the stars paper with a Martha Stewart Border to cover up the join. An acetate circle was die cut with a nestie then cut into a spiral with either end stuck onto the insides of the card. The 'superhero' words the then stamped, cut, layered and stuck onto the spiral so the pop up and stand proud of the card. I added left over stars (from the border punch) for a little extra detail.

As there is no room on the inside for a greeting I added a layered square for the personal message.

I enjoyed making this card so much I'm going to be sad to part with it LOL

There are a few challenges I am going to enter this card into so here goes :

Thanks for looking!
