With Men in Mind - ICE COLD BEER

Sending Fathers Day Wishes to every Daddy out there.  Blowing kisses to Heaven for the Daddies who are up there sitting on their clouds looking down, but always with us in our hearts.

Today's share was made using Crafter's Companion Camden Town Kit.  Made as a Birthday Card this could quite easily be a Fathers Day Card.

 Materials need for this card are

Camden Town Beer Topper from the Kit
Co-ordinating Background Card
Signature Dies, Bunting and Flourishing Star
Green Background Paper from Camden Town Kit
Gold Peel off's
Heavyweigh Acetate
Paper trimmer
Hougie Board
Eazi score board
Red tape
Sticky Pads

Cut the Background card to 6 x 9 in. Score at 1,2,3.5,5 and 7 in
Fold into a concertina,  This becomes the base of the card. Keep the off cuts for later.
Cut the Heavy weight acetate on the short at 6in. Then fold at A4 half and burnish and crease.
Place the topper on the centre step and embellish with Star flourishes
Attach Red tape to the very bottom of both front and back of the card, and attach the acetate.
Using left over background card, cut a 6 x 2 in piece and score in half at 1in,  This becomes the roof of the card.  Attach with red tape.
Cut another two 1 x 6 pieces of card to cover the workings of tape on the front and back of the card,
Attach the Bunting,
Cut a strip of coordinating background paper 2 inches wide.
Using the hougie board, score at every half inch.  Then burnish to make a concertina. This will become the rosette.
Cut two 1 inch circles of the Background card to secure the rosette.  Attach to the front.

That's all for now crafty friends.  Thank you for stopping by.  Hope to see you again soon.
