How To Make A Dapper Father's Day Gift Card Holder

Hello everyone, Michelle here with you today, sharing a classic themed gift card holder I have made for Father's Day, featuring a vintage dapper gentleman image from my stash, and the absolutely gorgeous Getaway Glittered Cardstock, a Friendship Wrap Cardholder
& Dew Drops from 
The Robin's Nest.

The base for the "card", is the greenish/deep teal hued cardholder
from the Teal Friendship Wrap Collection.

The Robin's Nest Friendship Wraps are
chipboard cards & containers, there are 4 different shapes, they come in packages of 3, and there are two color collections in each design.
So there is plenty of variety for your gift giving needs.

Once I made my paper selection, Getaway Glitter Cardstock, I cut the decorative strip, 
the full length of the 12x12 cardstock, utilizing it 
completely for the front & back of the gift card holder.

I then positioned the cardholder, 
over a section of the solid coloring of the cardstock,
featuring design elements for the top corner
and full bottom of the inside of the cardholder.

Once cut I used
the cardholder to evenly score the cut cardstock. 

My adhesive choice throughout much of the project, 
was actually double-sided tape, 
and double-sided dimensional squares.

Because the weight of the cardstock, I did add 4 eyelets, 
2 frontside, 2 backside, and used twine rope
in order to secure the closure of the design,
which also added a "manly" element to the design.

I then chose a chipboard design from my personal stash, 
which complimented design elements in the cardstock.
I also colored it with an antique brass powder, 
and using ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever,
I glued it to the front, and as the background 
element for the dapper man image.

For a dimensional element for the back of the card,
I selected a design from the Robin's Nest
Belgian Chocolate Boy Rub On collection,
transferring to white card stock, and then 
cutting the design out.

Finishing touches were, adding Robin's Nest River Bed Tear Drops 
& Black Forest Mini Dew Drops
 (both in the amber shade only) to the scrolled chipboard, and rub on elements,
and using distress inks for the edges of the card, and patting 
a gold shade distress ink onto the rub on element.

This entire project, took less than an hour to put together.
Looks like I spent much more time than that.
