Father’s Day Concertina

Well here I was thinking I was going to be bored and all lonely while certain friends attended the Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip the other week. To say the least ‘bored’ did not enter my vocabulary – for the past two weeks I’ve had the busiest time as a demonstrator and my best sales month ever!

Who knows I might even be on the Incentive Trip next year!!

I have a couple of regular Stamp A Stack groups and a couple of them have asked for ‘male cards’ – I nearly fell off my chair – being that I’m a mother of two girls I don’t do many cards for the male species! I thought with Father’s Day this Sunday I might offer a nice card for the dads, grampa’s, pops, opa’s and hubbies.

I came up with this little Concertina Tag card and I must say I’ve had a great time using the Outlaw Designer Series Papers.

I love the earthy colours in this paper pack and using them for this project I’ve had the desire to make more items from this pack.

The stamps in this card are from Occasional Greetings, Baroque Motifs and Define your Life. All very versatile sets which can be used for many occasions.

This picture shows the card open leaving room in the centre for your own personal message or maybe a photo?

I do hope you like this card and if you’d like to make one I am holding a class at my place on Thursday where you make this card and a small gift for dad. So call me to book your spot!
