Last Sunday was Father’s Day in Sweden and hubby was celebrating his first one. I thought I’d try to make it a special one for him.
When I first saw the Vintage Autumn Basics collection I just knew which papers I wanted to use for Father’s Day. The blue ones are absolutely perfect. The chipboard gates makes this card a bit special…
You can see through the gates and spot the card. I’ve used the gorgeous stripes from one of the papers as ribbon on the gates. The rings from 7Gypsies are such good quality and I love the finish.
Roses, roses… I just couldn’t help it. I’m not good at buying flowers for men, feels weird somehow. But he got several made out of paper.
You’ve got to have a lock on a gate and who does it better then Tim Holtz…
The inside of the card.
Just LOVE this paper. Marie at her best.
The middle part has been folded and the mini hanger has been used as a clip…
… and when you remove the clip there’s a poem inside that reads… (freely translated)
Walk with me daddy
Hold my hand while we’re walking
There’s so much I want to learn
And so much I don’t understand
Teach me how to avoid all the danger every day
Teach me to always do my best
And be happy for who I am
Every child needs a loving hand
So they can have support and security
Come and hold my hand daddy
We have a long way to walk
He also got a little box made out of cardboard, paint and scrap papers…
I’m in love with those golden leaves… They are so pretty. And inside the box you could find the following necklace…
It says “Beloved Joel” and has Joel’s birthdate engraved on the backside.
I hope you got inspired! I received my package of the new Vintage Frost Basics yesterday, so don’t forget to stop by later on… I totally freaked out when I saw it. That collection is GOLD and I can’t wait to start using it.
