Designer's Tip: When using the Mix 'Ems Dazzles(, place the largest Dazzles( sticker down first and then fill in the smaller pieces using different colors.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Place the card fold at the top. Cover the card with red textured paper. Ink the edges of a 6"x4 1/2" red star paper and mat with navy blue cardstock, leaving a 1/16" border. Write "Happy Father's Day!" 2 1/4" from the bottom of the rectangle and 1/4" from the right side. Glue to the card front.
  2. Punch 3 squares and ink the edges black. Mat each with navy cardstock, leaving a 1/8" border. Place a large Mix 'Em Pinwheel Dazzles( on each square and mix the colors with the primary color being blue. Foam tape, evenly spaced, across the bottom of the card. Wrap a length of ribbon around the top portion of the card and tie a bow on the left side. Place a glue dot under the bow to keep it from slipping.

This was a lovely project. I had my eye on this one for awhile, and little by little gathered all my materials. I modified the square size from 1" 9/16 to 1 1/2, since I did not have a punch. Changed the bow because I am lousy at making bows. Cut my inside red panel too short, so I matted it on navy. I am really pleased with this card. I know my Dad will appreciate it. My family loves the cards I make, and they gather round on an occasion to see what I've done next.
Paper Wishes is responsible for my cards. The webisodes are great and I check my email often to see what is coming.
