It isn't Father's Day down here in Australia (ours is in September) but the CAS-tastic Wednesday challenge asked for a Father's Day card, so I delivered. Hey, at least I'll have one ready for him in September - not at the last minute as is normally my style...

And this card isn't actually my normal style. It's kind of busy, and layery. I think I was channeling a bit of Kristina Werner today.


I broke out the Mod Podge and chipboard alphas (Kaisercraft) for this card. I don't have any precision files but my bead reamers (from my past life as a jewellery designer) did the job just as well in those tight corners, especially the inside of the "A".

It was originally a top folding 6"x4" card but I didn't like how smushed everything was down the bottom so I cut off the offending cardstock and adhered it down to a 4" square card. Everyone who reads this blog must know by now that I have an ongoing love affair with 4" square cards!
Does anyone else out there think they're the best size? The only problem with them though is finding envelopes - hence why I always make my own.

Size of card: 4" square (as mentioned above!)

Card/paper - Bazzil textured cardstock, Lexel "Ferrum" paper, Kaisercraft "Refuge" from Hideaway set patterned paper
Extra - Kaisercraft chipboard alphas
Tools - Fiskars paper trimmer, Helmar glue tape, Mod Podge, Bead reamers and sanding block

Challenge: CWC008 - Father's Day and CPS#172

Thanks for looking!


  1. Fantastic card-I can see a glimpse of Kristina coming out but completely all your design. Great color choices as well!
