Stepped card for Dad

I'm having a little time out this morning as my brain has been overloaded with information.

I have made this little card for Fathers Day. It's only a few weeks away so I thought I'd get started.

First take a piece of green card measuring 5.5" by 9". Score at the following intervals 2", 2", 1.5", 1.5" and 1". Fold at the score lines and you have the base of your card. Take a piece of A4 acetate and trim so that it measures 5.5" (same as the card). Fold the acetate in half and put to one side.

To make the scalloped edges, I used the card from the Special Delivery Gift Set. You will need to stick the from and top pieces to the outside of the card so put these to one side. However, on the middle step attach this first.

Cut out the animals and letters and attach to the card with glue.

Attach the acetate to the front and the back of the base with double sided tape. Hide the tape with the scalloped edges. Finally attach a piece of the scalloped card to the top of the card by folding it over and gluing in place.
