Father's Day Card

Thought I'd just write a quick post to show you my Dad's Father's Day card. It's my first attempt at a tri-shutter card, and it was a bit more complicated than I expected! I cut 3 different card blanks before I got one that folded and laid properly, but I am quite pleased with the finished result.

It was also my first time using Craft Serif Artist, which I actually found relatively easy. I have been a digital scrapbooker for about 6 years, and usually use photoshop elements, but came across Serif Artist when I bought the Party Paws DVD from Crafters Companion. 

I'm a HUGE fan of the 'Born to Shop' cartoons and when I saw they'd done a 'Bloke' version, I just had to get the kits!

Card - from Crafters Companion, folded using Ultimate Pro
Papers - It's a Mans world by Claire Curd (papermania)
Embelishments - Bloke at Leisure from Daisytrail
