Dad U R Rad

How to: Cut White cardstock base 5×10" and then fold in half. Cut a 5" square from the Lemon & Ginger patterned paper and place it over the cardstock base. Add a thin strip of the Berry Infusion patterned paper to the top and bottom of your card. Machine stitch across both pieces of patterned paper. Die cut or hand-cut three bow tie shapes. Stitch "seams" in the center of your bow ties. Adhere the bow ties to your card with pop dots to add dimension. Place a Shimelle Wood Button in the center of each of the bow ties. Add your sentiment using the Hipster Thickers and letter stickers. 

No. 1 Dad

How to: Cut white cardstock base at 4.25×11" and fold in half. Cut the Croissant patterned paper at 4.25×5.5" and place it over the cardstock base. Use scrap brand strips or patterned paper strips to create a diagonal design on your card background. Machine stitch along each of the diagonal patterned papers. Die cut a large #1 and adhere to your card using pop dots. Add the word Dad over the number 1 using the Hipster Thickers. Finish the card by adding a wood button and rocket die cut from the die cut cardstock shapes pack.
