My Dad's Birthday Card

Rich and I took my dad and stepmom out for dinner this weekend to celebrate Dad's 63rd birthday.  I bought him a dark gray thermal Henley shirt, but wanted the presentation to go with the gift (you may have noticed I try to match the packaging and card with the gifts whenever I can).  I had seen this amazing card on someone's blog - it is a total CASE - and had to make it for him.  I used a white gift back from a dollar store and tied coordinating Stampin' Up! ribbons to the handle.

The card was super easy!!!  I cut the paper strips 1 3/8" x 5 3/8" and attached them to a 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" cardstock, then ran it through the Big Shot in an embossing folder.  You could make this card with any cardstock and/or designer paper combination.  I will be sharing this technique with my club and team members soon!

Stamps:  Bring on the Cake
Paper:    Whisper White, Basic Black, Always Artichoke, Neutrals & Regals Designer Paper Stacks
Ink:        Basic Gray
Other:    Big Shot with Cevron Embossing Folder & Apothecary Accents Framelits, Neutrals Buttons, Whisper White Bakers Twine, Dimensionals
