"As it's getting close to Fathers Day I thought a Fathers Day card would be appropriate, but there's a slight twist in that it has to be more than a card. You can interpret that any way you want to. If it's not Fathers Day in your neck of the woods then a card for a Man (any man) will do."
I'd already made my Dad's Fathers Day card, so had to think of something else! Nikky had sent the Polkadoodle DT some sheets of her Freddies Friends and Stackies and I wanted to make something with them and decided that this would be the perfect challenge!
I've used virtually all the elements from the Friends sheet and have layered them up according to the very easy step by step instructions. I've mounted the sentiment and topper onto some very shiny green card that I found in my stash to keep with the gardening theme.
The pocket is a cello card bag which I have stuck to the back of the topper but have left the opening free so the items inside can be either taken out or added to easily - I've included a packet of seeds, some plant tags, garden twine and also gardening wire.
There are lots of layers to the sheet so the finished piece looks really effective! I've had limited experience of decoupage in the past but these sheets are pre cut - you simply pop them out and away you go!
