Happy Father's Day from WorldWin!

Hello! I have made a card for all the dads out there! I hope you all have an amazing Father's Day on Sunday!

I was able to get my hands on the ColorMates Smooth and Silky Assortment Packs! Yes, that is 75 sheets of yummy colors! I used White and Bark from the Neutral/Earth Tone assortment, Apple Red from the Warm assortment, and Military Green from the Cool assortment for my card. 

Here's how to make a card of your own!

1. Start by creating a 5 x 5 inch card base from Smooth and Silky Bark cardstock. 

2. Trim Apple Red cardstock to 4 7/8 x 4 7/8 inches and emboss with a gear pattern embossing folder. 

3. Rub gray ink over the top of the embossed areas.  

4. Wrap a torn strip of natural-colored linen around the top of the red cardstock and tie a knot on the right side. 

5. Attach the embossed cardstock to the card front.

6. Trim a banner, approximately 4 3/4 x 2 1/8 inches, from Military Green cardstock.

7. Trim a second banner, slightly smaller, from striped paper. Glue the banners together and attach them to the left side of the card, placing the banner over the strip of linen. 

8. Trim a banner, approximately 4 5/8 x 2 1/8 inches, from Bark cardstock.

9. Trim a second banner, slightly smaller, from text paper. Glue the banners together and attach them to the card just to the left of the linen knot, overlapping the first banner.

10. Place some double-sided tape onto the text banner, approximately 3-inches from the top of the card. Place natural and red twine, in a circular pattern, over the tape.

11. Stamp an image onto White cardstock and color as desired. Trim the image, edge with tan ink, and mat with Military Green cardstock.

12. Using foam tape, place the image over the twine as shown.

13. To decorate the inside of the card, trim two pieces of White cardstock to 4 7/8 x 4 7/8 inches. Edge with tan ink.

14. Place one piece of White cardstocok onto the top of the inside of the card.

15. Create a gift card pocket by trimming Apple Red cardstock with a gift card pocket die template. Emboss the pocket with a gear pattern embossing folder. 

16. Rub gray ink over the top of the embossed areas.  

17. Trim a piece of text paper to line the inside of the gift card pocket. Assemble the pocket.

18. Wrap the pocket with twine and attach it to the center of the card panel.

 19. On the second piece of White cardstocok, stamp a sentiment and a coordinating image with brown ink as shown.

20. Place the stamped cardstock onto the bottom of the inside of the card.

21. Fill the gift card pocket and give the card to the guy in your life!
