Best Daddy

Hi Crafty Friends,

Father's Day is about 6 months away down here in Australia, but as I have had this card in my head for months and months, I figured now was as good a time as any to finally make it. I have a number of cards to make for Father's Day so getting an early start is always a good thing.

Before my husband retired a few years ago, he was in the building industry for over 40 years so when I saw this cute Build It Beaver Stamp set from Clearly Besotted I knew I had to add it to my collect to make a card for him.

As you can see I have created a pop-up card this time using Lawn Fawn's Stitched Hillside Pop-up die set. It has been a while since I played with this die set. To create my pop up I also used the Stitched Mountain Borders also from Lawn Fawn.

I stamped the images a couple of times using my MISTI (some like the trees and logs, multiple times) and then used my Scan N Cut to cut them out. When you have so many to cut out that machine sure is a time saver!!

To the base of the card I added the Father's Day Border also from Lawn Fawn.

I used the same elements for the front of my card that I used for the inside ... the mountains; the grassy pop-up hills and a few of the beavers. The stamped sentiments on this card are also included in this stamp set.
