Mandy's Step-by-Step Father's Day Tutorial

Good Morning Krafty Friends and Followers

Here is my Father's Day card tutorial!

Mike and Ian are on Create and Craft today at 11.00 am.  They have 2 new die cut paper products on the show too, Handbags in 12 colours and Book Box cards in 6 colours.

Hello Crafters!  Today I would like to share with you how I made this Father's Day easel card from one of the card sets on the Kraftyhands Vintage Motors CD.

So first of all, here are the materials used:
Kraftyhands - Vintage Motors CD
Joanna Sheen - gentle gloss photo paper
Core'Dinations - brown card
Craftwork Cards - white 15.5 cm square card blank, white A4 card
Pinflair - dimensional glue gel
Other - double sided tape, scissors, guillotine, tweezers, scoring board and scoring tool

Step 1
Print out 2 corresponding easel card sheets using glossy photo paper

Step 2
Take the square card blank and score across the front at 7.5cm to make the base for the easel

Step 3
Cut out the easel card insert, topper base and topper - I used a guillotine, but you could just as easily use a ruler and craft knife.
Cut three squares of brown card - two 14.5cm x 14.5cm and one 12.5cm x 12.5cm
Cut one square of white card - 15cm x 15cm

Step 4
Cut out the Father's Day sentiment, sentiment backer and photo corners using scissors

Step 5
Layer the card as shown using double sided tape
- Topper base onto brown card, layered onto white card
- Topper onto brown card
- Easel card insert onto brown card, then stick onto the inside of the card blank

Step 6
Place double sided tape onto the back of the topper base, making sure that the tape is lower than the card fold

Step 7
Stick the topper base onto the front of the easel card

Step 8
Layer the sentiment with dimensional glue, and stick onto the card insert using more dimensional glue
Place the topper onto the topper base using dimensional glue and leave to dry

And here you have the completed card!
