Relish the Day

Hi Crafty Friends,

Welcome to our Paper Pros challenge for June. This time round our challenge is hosted by Shelly Hickox.

With Father's Day almost upon everyone in the USA, Shelly has given us the theme .... Masculine Cards.

Of course as Karen Burniston has just release her new dies through her new company ... Karen Burniston in cahoots with Riley and Company, I just had to play with a couple of her new dies for the challenge.

I used the new Charm Accordion and Nature Edges die sets for my card today. I love how easy the Charm Accordion is to create a card either die cutting the main accordion base die once or multiple dies to get a longer card. I die cut the base twice.

To decorate my card I used the Lawn Fawn Let's BBQ stamp set which I received for Mother's Day. 

The Charm Accordion die set comes with 5 charms you can use but I decided to use the BBQ tools for the charms for my card. It's probably better to have charms that fit within the square frame, but once you train the folds it works ok.

Even though Father's Day in Australia isn't until September, this was a good opportunity to add another one to my stash, I need a few for my kids. I found a "happy father's day!" sentiment that fitted onto the sauce bottles. I love how the ants are carrying all the food at the bottom of the card.

Here is a look at the front of the card when it is folded ready to be placed in an envelope. I added another of the sentiments from the stamp set on a fishtail banner.
