Dad's Birthday



Hi all! Just a quick post today because we're headed down to my Mom and Dad's. It's Dad's birthday today and this is the gift card holder I'm giving him. You can see the tutorial for the pop-up GC holder HERE. This is my favorite GC holder to make. Really easy and quick!

The CHF truck image and Flourishes sentiment are stamped on sparkly Cryogen White from Paper Temptress.



The matted blue layer behind the truck is up on foam tape. I added some Cryogen White to the inside and embossed it with my diamond plate EF....Dad loves diamond plate!



Thanks for stopping by today!
