All Tied Up? Fun Fold Card

Good morning stampers! I have a fun card I wanted to share with you today.  This is a fun fold card using the Labels Collection Framelits (#125598) and a Father's Day Card.  This big day is just around the corner.  Are you ready?

To make this card I started with a 4 1/2 x 12 piece of Riding Hood Red Cardstock.  I folded that in half  and ran in through my Big Shot using the Labels Collection Framelit.  It was the second to largest Die in this collection.  Once through the Big Shot I scored the card once more 2" from the center score line so the card folded up to create an easel card.  Once I had all the score lines it was time to stamp.

I used the Best Dad Ever stamp set (#120681).  Such a great Father's Day set.  I started by stamping the ties on a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock using Early Espresso ink and then stamped them again using Marina Mist ink onto a scrap piece of Crumb Cake cardstock.  I used my snips to cut out three ties and popped these up using Dimensionals.  I used two of the sentiments and cut each of the words to fit my card.  The large Scallop is from the Perfect Pennants Die Cut (#123126).  I love this scallop and use it often.  I layered a 2 1/2" Circle punch onto the Scallop and this is what helps to keep the card standing.  Lastly, we have an awesome ribbon that I have barely used this year and decided to pull it out and start using it.  WHY did I wait so long to use my Scallop Dots Ribbon? Silly.  For this card, I just wanted to show the small scallop edge on the top half of the card.  You will see it underneath the Crumb Cake cardstock. 

I hope this inspires you to use this awesome set.  If you don't have it yet there is still time to get it before Father's Day.  You can find it HERE.
