Father's Day Gift Card

I find it particularly hard to shop for Father’s Day or for anything male related.  Girls are easy – the classic pedicure, some clothing, some accessories are always my go to but what to give a guy?  What to give a great father?   This year I am opting for a gift card to a tennis store for Mike.   And to not completely cop out by giving a gift card, I am going to try this adorable gift card holder by Jennifer Holmes.  She's used Peel & Stick stamps from PSA Vanilla (to spell Dad) and from our Peanuts Jo Cool. 

I will need the following supplies:

·         Stamps:  Vanilla Alphabet, Super Star, and Peanuts Joe Cool Peel & Stick Pack (PSA Essentials)
·         Paper: Smokey Shadow (Papertrey Ink), patterned paper, (Cosmo Cricket)
·         Ink: Fresh Snow, Smokey Shadow (Papertrey Ink)
·          Other: circle punch (EK Success), BG11 marker (Copic), twine (The Twinery)

And here are the instructions:
  1. Cut a 4.5 x 11 piece of cardstock from Smokey Shadow
  2. Score and fold at 4.5 and 9 inches. 
  3. Stamp circular border image from Super Star onto short piece of cardstock.  Use a circle punch to punch out the center to create a notch for the gift card.
  4. Adhere short end of cardstock to card to create a holder for gift card.
  5. Randomly stamp front of card with circular border using white ink.
  6. Cut a strip of patterned paper and stamp “dad” and Snoopy image onto front using Smokey Shadow ink.  Color with Copic marker.
  7. Tie twine around front of card.

Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful Dad’s out there and a personal shout out to Mike – the best father in the world!
