Polkadoodle Challenge 23 - Something For Dad

Welcome to another Polkadoodle challenge! This week I am hosting the challenge and I've set the theme as:

Something For Dad

It's Father's Day quite soon so this is an ideal time to get those cards made! I've used the Father's Day download - both the papers and also the cardstock for the letters. On the download there are some large letters and I've used these as templates to cut from a different background of card.

A bit of faux stitching around the edges of the letters and I've kept the zig zag shape by using some linen bloke style ribbon.

Good luck with the challenge - deadline for entries is Sunday 12 June at 12noon GMT.

This card fits the following challenges:

Tip Top Tuesday: More Than One Fold
Stamping Boutique: Men Only
Fab n Funky: Magnificent Men
The Sisterhood of Crafters: Celebrate Men
The Paper Variety: For The Guys!
Bows and Berries: Masculine
Here Come The Boys Challenge: For Dad
Scrapalicious USA: Accordion Technique

  • All papers and letter templates: Father's Day download
  • Everything else: My stash
