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.



  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.
  3. Inside: Write a greeting near the top of the 61/2"x2 3/4" textured red paper. Ink the top long edge black and mat the long edge with navy cardstock. Glue to the card inside back, 1/16" from the bottom edge.
  4. Punch a red square and mat. Place a green pinwheel Dazzles( at the center and accent with blue and red. Glue the square to the top left inside back. Place a long thin Dazzles( border to extend from the pinwheel to the bottom of the card.

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.
