Father's Day Card #1

Happy Monday! Here is my first Father's Day Card. This is a wallet card and my DD saw this and wanted to make one.

You will want to use so thick cardstock and it can even be textured. Or, you can emboss it with your cuttlebug.

I used a brown cardstock from Bazzil and cut as follows:
Piece #1 at 9 x 3.25
Piece #2 at 8.5 x 3.25
Piece #3 cut 2 pcs at 4 3/16 x 2"
Piece #4 cut 2 pcs at 4 3/16 x 1"

I ran the big pc through my cuttlebug with the mosaic folder, then inked with chalk ink in brown roan. All pieces were inked in brown roan.
**Piece #1 was scored at 4 7/16 AND 4 9/16. You will have a little tiny book "spine."
**Piece #2 was scored at 4.25.

You can also use a corner rounder on Pc #1 and can use a paper piercer and faux stitching.

To assemble the layers: Open up Pc #1, glue only the 3 sides of Pc #2 (leave the long side of the top open--as if you were putting money in the long side), then Pcs #3, one on each side of the fold and glue only 3 sides, (leaving top open to slide stuff behind). Finally, take both pcs off #4 and repeat (leaving top open to slide stuff behind).

NOTE: There will be a little gap down the middle of the center fold.

Lastly, you can type up anything you want to put inside...take a picture of the kids together (which I will do), make "Coupons" or Certificates or cute business cards. And, put his favorite gift card in it.

I cannot take credit for this design, there are many tutorial videos out, can't remember where I saw these directions now.
