Cupcake challenge - Father's Day

Monday again. Time just flies by the last weeks before the summer holidays. Managed to get some time to make this card for Cupcake Craft Challenges. This week the challenge is "Father's day", but if you don't celebrate father's day or it's not celebrated at the same time as over here , a card for any man will do. There is a twist though. Your creation has to be "more than" a card. I have made a holiday voucher holder for my dad. He doesn't celebrate father's day just now since it's on a different date in Sweden. But he is off to Finland so I am sending him some travel cheques in this holder. (He is turning 70 this month, gratulerar alsklings papsi!)You can also use this for vouchers or cash. It's folded in the same way as a marchbox so if you have one, just case it with different measurements to fit your voucher on the inside. For this project I used a Sailboat stamp, think this one is from Inkadinkadoo, I have used the cracked glass technique on this card. I learned this over at the Sugar Bowl's monthly tutorial challenge Sugar Sugar. the papers I have had for a long time, but am 90% sure they are from Dovecraft, might get all wrong... The ribbon I got off Ebay, the sentiment stamp is from SU and I used the small circle and small scalloped circle SU punch aswell. Sometimes it feels a bit boring to give vouchers, or you feel like you haven't made an effort when you give someone vouchers or cash for their birthday. But if you make one of these folders the person who get this little pressie will know that you gone through a lot of effort to make this. Well, my dad might think so, but this folder only took me 20 minutes to for coming by and have a great week. OH, don't forget to pop along to Cupcake to have a nosy at the other DT members fab creations.
