No, I Don't Really Have Three Fathers!

As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator I've got access to lots of resources to find inspiration.  One demonstrator named Sheila Kipnes created a Father's Day shirt card.  After watching it, I had to make one for myself. After doing one, I wanted to do another, and another!  Here's the first one:

These Vintage Trinkets brads look perfect on this card.   I used the Teeny Tiny Wishes "Happy Father's Day" sentiment on the inside of the card layering the Word Window and the Modern Label punches. 

Here are two more versions:

One thing that I forgot to add is that when you fold the sleeves in, the dimensions of the card are 4" x 5 1/2."  That will make the card fit into an invitation size envelope.

Addendum - I wrote a tutorial for this card here.

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Regal Patterns Designer Series Paper Pack, Whisper White, Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke, Night of Navy
Ink: Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke, Night of Navy
Accessories: Vintage Trinkets, Bitty Buttons, sponges, Corner Rounder punch, Modern Label punch, Word Window punch

Dide had her Kindergarten graduation today.  I'm so proud of her!

Dide was so hot twoards the end of the program.  I call this photo, "Get this show over, I'm HOT!"

I'll be glad to send anyone the instructions to make this fabulous card.  Just leave me a comment : ) 

Happy Stamping!

PS - I won a Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge for this card here.

I would love to see how you made this card. It's really cute. I like your variations. Do you have the dimensions you used?

This is a great card. I too would love to know how you made it.
I know what you mean when you say, Get this show over, I'm HOT. We had a hot day yesterday and we have a hotter day scheduled for today. It's not fair on the last two days of school. Kids know we're done and we're babysitting anyway! Hopefully today will go well and quickly!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this! Please send the directions to me as well if it's not too much trouble.
I think the patterned stack paper was perfect for these and thank you for sharing with us at Hand Stamped Sentiments.
