Good morning blog friends....

I made this small card for our grandson to give to his dad for 'father's day'.  We had to go to the village, where Max lives, so that he could write the card and the gift tag, hence the background on the photos as they were taken on our card seat lol

I must confess that half of it was made for last year but I obviously changed my mind and made a different one!  It's amazing what you find when sorting out bits and pieces in your stash boxes!

I used a coffee coloured cardstock that I made into a 6"square and die cut a smaller panel, same colour, to go onto the base card

A smaller panel was then cut and embossed and I matted that onto white card prior to adhering onto the base card

Two flags were cut from paper from my stash.  I die cut the 'Happy Father's Day' and embossed it using the coffee coloured card and the paper.  I overlapped it slightly to give a shadow affect

I typed the sentiment then die cut it and embossed.  I kept the card in the die and added a little distress ink onto it

The insert was stamped and I made a small pocket to house the tag

The tag was actually on the wrapped gift with a little note to say "please place tag inside your card"
