Friends of SpeedyTV # 24 - Father's Day Card

Happy Monday,

Welcome to a new week of challenges with Friends of SpeedyTV. We hope you enjoyed last weeks challenge. This week with Father's Day just around the corner we thought what a better time than now to make a Father's Day Card. This week we are giving this great stamp set from last month to one lucky winner.

Get Reel

For my card this week I wanted to do something new. I created this card from an idea I saw on someone's blog. I also created a tutorial for it if you would like to create the same kind of card. You can find my tutorial here.

Shirt Card Tutorial
1 – 8 ½ x 11 piece of card stock (base)
Card stock for image and sentiment (inside)
Scoring Tool
Bone Folder
Adhesive (not pictured)

Step One:
Take your 8 ½ x 11 piece of card stock and place it on your scoring tool vertically. Score at 4 ½, 2 1/8 and 6 3/8.

Step Two:
 Fold on Center score lines and crease the fold with bone folder.

Step Three:
Fold on other two score lines folding them in towards the center.

Step Four:
At the top of your paper fold down the corners and crease with your bone folder.

Step Five:
Flip card over, and be sure to have your corner folds facing down toward you.

Step Six:
Score 1 inch at the top of your card and fold over and crease score line.

Step Seven:
Turn card back over with folded corners still facing you. Fold the corners at the top toward the center be sure to crease you edges with bone folder.

Step Eight:
Take the bottom of your card and fold up and under your collar flaps

Step Nine:
Put sentiment inside card.

Step Ten:
Finish card to your liking

I hope you liked my card. Thanks for stopping and commenting. I hope to see you again next week.

Now it is your turn to show us your Fathers Day Card that you created for us.  You can use any stamp set that you would like, but if you use a Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co stamp set your name will be entered twice. Can't wait to see all the fabulous creations.

You have until 11:59 pm on Sunday June 17th to submit your cards. Good Luck everyone. 

Have a blessed day!
