A Daughter's Card for Father's Day

Hi everyone!  Today, I would like to share a sweet Fathers' Day card from a daughter.  I used both  Altered Pages products with those from our partner, Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts!  I think they make a fabulous combination.

Cut out little girl image (your choice) from the Chubby Cheeks Collage Sheet.

Paint Gypsy Soul flourished frame with a combination of Liquitex Gesso and Rouge Chalk Paint to make a pretty pink to match the flowers in the picture.  (Tip:  Use a blending tool or a makeup sponge to add paint to laser cut chipboard.  It makes it easier to cover the chipboard without filling up the openings with paint).

Trim picture and glue to back of frame.

Cut a piece of Authentique Accomplished paper to 4-7/8" x 6-1/2".  If you leave the white border on the paper piece, you will get an extra 1/2", and I used a decorative edge punch to make it look like lace.

Cut the top portion of this paper from the Glitz Uncharted Waters paper pad  to 2-3/8" x 4-7/8".

Adhere both pieces to the kraft card front, as shown.

Tear a piece of the Adhesive Corrugated card stock and spread Liquitex Gesso over the corrugations. Let dry.  Spread some Aleene's Tacky Glue randomly over the card and sprinkle Ocean Blue Glass Glitter

 Remove excess glitter and adhere to card front, as shown.

Before gluing frame down to card, I added a piece of the corrugated card stock to the back to give it enough  height equal to the corrugate piece next to it.  

This allowed me to glue it down level to the card front.

Print Intricate Labels and fussy cut one that can accommodate stamping "DAD" onto.

Adhere to top center of card with Dimensional Adhesives.  Fold a length of Dyeable Seam Binding into a "V" shape.  Hold piece together with a chipboard gear and a brad. Adhere to card, as shown.

I like to use stationery paper to computer-generate or stamp sentiments for inside my cards. I found this one on the internet and printed it out.  
A daughter needs a Dad to be the standard against which she will judge all men."
I think this one is perfect to give to my Dad.
