Susan Tidwell is also here today sharing a "Father's Day"
Card Tutorial! 

Hi it's Susan Tidwell! 
I have one more tutorial for you using the Echo Park "Jack" paper collection.
 Before you know it it will be Father's Day so I have made a card for Dad using this super cute collection.
Supplies You Will Need:

4" tan twill trim *
Navy cardstock - 4 1/4" x 11" and a scrap approximately 2" x 3" *
"Brown  Sugar" cardstock 3 3/4" x 5" *
Tape runner or Scotch Quick Dry Tacky Glue *
dimensional foam adhesive *
Edge distressing tool 
Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher or stapler *

(all (*) items available in LBH store)

1. Fold navy cardstock in half to create a top-fold card base.

2. Cut red "trucks" paper  4" x 5 1/4", ink edges and attach to front of card.

3. Cut out "map" journal card, distress and ink edges and attach over the red paper. Addglobe sticker on dimensional foam adhesive over the globe printed on the journal card. (See photo above with sticker in place.)
4. Cut strip of TSS Deco Leather 1/2" x 5 1/4" and adhere vertically to left side of card front.

5. Add "Finest", "My Hero" and "Dad" stickers from Elements Sticker Sheet to card, popping up the "Dad" sticker.

6. Layer tan frame sticker (also from Elements sheet) to scrap of navy card stock and trim around leaving approximately 1/8" border. Add navy alpha stickers from Alpha Sticker Sheet.  Fold over tan twill and staple to top of frame. Trim ends of twill. Pop this up on card as shown.
7. For the inside, ink edges of tan card stock and adhere.

8. Add compass sticker (Elements Sticker Sheet) to lower left corner.
I have had lots of fun with the paper collection. I love the two 12 x 12 sticker sheets! Even though I've created four projects and used many of the stickers, there are still dozens left.  Making more masculine cards would be a great project to use some of these leftovers.

Thanks Susan Tidwell for that great card tutorial!
