Get to the Point

There are plenty of good men in the world, and the best are awesome dads! I decided to use the Truly Tailored bundle from the Occasions Catalog and the #tgifc159 sketch challenge to create a tri-fold card befitting those great guys:tgif2bchallenge2bbuttons2b2018-021

Here’s my card:

Then you open up the card a fold-at-a-time to see this:

Here are a few tips to create your own: I started with a 4-1/4″ x 11″ Crumb Cake card stock base scored at 5″ and 10-1/2″. Next I put the Tailored Tag punch all the way in on one end and punched (keep the tag you punched out for the front!):

Use a 4-1/4″ x 5″ piece of Designer Series Paper for the pointed flap (True Gentleman DSP used here, but sadly sold out…a good reminder not to procrastinate now that the retired list is out). I cut a 2-1/8″ square of card stock in half diagonally and adhered half on each bottom corner: Cut them off with your scissors for a perfect point!

Then you’ll adhere the DSP to the 1/2″ top of your card base that was scored. Stamp the sentiment on the punched out piece of card stock and use the Bow Builder punch to create a bow tie (which also retires at the end of May- order it soon if you don’t have it!) and attach it with a mini Stampin’ Dimensional or glue dot to the end of the pointed flap:

I stamped and punched out another greeting from Very Vanilla card stock to attach to the inside of the card, letting it peek through the window of the second flap:

You can use strips of DSP to add anywhere you feel needs a finishing touch. Finally, when you open up the second flap to the inside of the card, I added the “Happy Father’s Day” sentiment from the Guy Greetings stamp set:
