Fancy Folds and Fathers

Now, these cards are probably not quite right for the Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge for this week as it asks for


But, in my defense, twine can be classed as bloke ribbon, right?!

Anyway, the top card has been made for my Dad for Fathers Day and the bottom one I've made for my cousin Claire for her Dad (he is a gardener, so quite apt!) and I've filled it with some plant labels and some garden wire. My Dad is getting a small bar of chocolate in his and a gift card, when I get round to getting it!

I've followed the tutorial in a recent Papercraft Inspirations magazine which was written by the very inspiring Enfys and even I managed to follow the instructions (I have been known to make it up as I go along despite having guidance!) Basically its a sheet of 12 x 12 paper, cut down to 11 x 11 and then folded and cut quite expertly and although you can't see it - there is a bit that folds out at the back, in the way of a traditional card does.

The twine has been added through eyelets and actually serve the purpose of holding the pockets together - I've glued the right hand side one. The images - George at Work - are downloads from Charmed Cards and Crafts and I've layered them onto dark blue card. Lettering is Cuttlebug Baby Face alphabet die cuts.
