Hello all, Nicole here with today’s blog post.  I can hardly believe we are reaching the latter half of May. Before we know it June will soon be here along with Father’s Day.  I used Basis Card stock and Origami Paper to put this card together for the tool/mister fix-it dad in my life, my father-in-law.

The Basis Card Stock Collection has such a great palette and range.  I picked Red, Black,Brown, Light Yellow, and Natural along with a few patterns from the Stone and Wood Origami Paper.  For the tools I used Lustre from the Curious Metallic Collection to get the shiny metal look.  
My Silhouette Cameo did all the work for me with a fun design by Jamie Cripps.  Once cut I used ink around the edges of the tools and handles.  
For the peg board background I used the wood grain patterned Origami Paper.  I used the parquet floor print on the back since it’s a shade darker then the plain wood grain.  
I trimmed around the peg board and then used Basis Brown Card Stock as a mat.  
When I went to attach the tools to the background I knew I wanted to add a little dimension, but foam adhesive was too high.  I pulled out some Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots and added the perfect amount of height to each of the tools.  
The little Dad post-it I added foam adhesive to just the bottom and glued the top part down.  
Really, such a simple card, but the card stock and just a bit of dimension finished it off to be a perfect card for a non frills dad.    
So one card down only a couple more for me to make before the craziness starts at work.  The downside of being a cake decorator . . . 😉  Have you started making anything for the dads in your life?   
Thanks for stopping by the blog today!
