Father's Day Card - Graphic 45

Hello everyone,

I am busy working on all of my July projects. I have some wonderful projects in store for you featuring Graphic 45, Scrap That! Kit club and The Shabby Tea Room. I hope to have sneaks ready for you soon.

Today I would like to share one of my June Design Team projects. During the month of June we celebrate the Dads in our lives. I wanted to make a sophisticated card for my husband. He dresses well, always has the latest men’s fragrance and is just the best in the world. When we were married 20 years ago…coming up on 21!....he wore white tie and tails. When I saw this image from the “A Proper Gentleman” collection, I knew it was made especially for this occasion. 

My card design is pretty simple, but the layers and metal embellishments from Graphic 45 take it to the next level.

I used metal hinges and metal flowers to add extra texture to my card. I trimmed the flowers with black Stickles and placed them behind my sentiment. I stamped my sentiment and then I ran it through my die cutting machine using a Spellbinders Fancy Tags die.
