Fathers' Day

I love this card but this concept is not my idea. This is a CASE of a Papyrus brand card I saw at Border's bookstore yesterday. Simple. Easy. I used sheets from 6x6 pad of Morocco Journey - these sheets are the same design as their 12x12 counterparts, only 1/4 th in scale. Perfect for these little ties. I created a tie template from white chipboard (a coaster remnant), then traced the tie pattern onto the wrong side of three different patterned papers. Cut out, fold over the wire hanger (18 gauge wire from Wal-Mart) and adhere. I positioned a mini glue dot on the back of each tie near the top and also near the base of each tie. Adhered unit to card base, then placed a teeny tiny dot of white clear drying glue on the hanger where the end coils around the hanger hook and press against card base firmly. To create the wire hanger just use a pair of needlenose pliers and wire color of your choice and form to the size desired. You may want to draw a hanger template on a piece of paper and use that as your guide, aligning the wire against your sketch periodically to ensure correct proportion. I used 18 gauge wire for this card. Card size: A2; Father's Day sentiment - Rosie's Roadshow; SU caramel cardstock; Ranger Archival black pad; 7gypsies 6x6 Morocco Journey patterned papers; black wire.
