AUTHENTIQUE PAPER: Happy Father's Day Group Blog Post - Day One with Kathy & Heather

Over on the Authentique Blog, we are celebrating all of our wonderful fathers, dads, sons, grandfathers, uncles, and other father-figures.
Hello, and Happy Father's Day week! If your house is anything like mine, you've been working, teaching, and have been spending ALL the time with your kiddos. This Father's Day, I really want to thank my lovely husband for all of the hard work that we have done this season. 
 I started with this fabulous Dad Accordion Fold Card by Lori Whitlock. I really liked the little tools that were on it. It was also fun and graphic. The base for this card was Manly Four. I really liked the dark blue tone of this paper. 

Each of the letters was cut from various sides of the Manly Collection papers. I used Manly Three, Four and Five respectively.
The tools were cut from a combination of brown cardstock, Manly Four and Spectrum cardstock in Silver Dollar. All of the pieces are popped up using foam adhesive. This creates depth and interest.

Once each was cut, I inked them all lightly with Stampin' Up ink in Tip Top Taupe

Once the card was complete, I used the A2 Notecard Envelope Box, sizing it to my card. To create some more interest on the front and make it more gift-like, I also cut the Best Dad Handlettering Brush Script from Manly Five and offset it. After inking both pieces, I added it to the envelope.
 This was a fun card to put together, and I know that it will be a fun card to display on Father's Day. 
Supplies Used: Authentique Manly Collection (12x12 Paper Pad, Manly Three, Manly Four, Manly Five), Spectrum Series (Silver Dollar), brown cardstock, kraft cardstock, foam adhesive, ink
