Happy Father's Day Card - Crafts Dies by Sue Wilson

Hello Friends!
I have a hard time making cards for the guys. I think a card without flowers does not look complete to me. But when it comes to making a card for my husband I have to make the exception, he would not approve if a put a flower on his card. LOL!!!
I think this Portuguese Collection - Background die set by Sue Wilson is perfect for the occasion.


I started by making a 5" x 7" card base with black cardstock. I die cut all the layers using the Portuguese Collection - Background die set and cardstock in natural white, kraft and black as pictured below. 

I adhered the layers to the card using foam squares to add dimension. For the Happy Father's Day sentiment inside the card I used Cheery Lynn dies and black cardstock.
