Fathers Day Card and Gift Box

For Fathers Day, I made my father in law Dennis a fish card and box. And then we went to Scheels and filled the box with his favorite lures and a jar of colorful bait.

Connie says he looks forward to my handmade cards every year. And about a week before Fathers Day Mitch started bugging me every single day to make his dads card.

I remembered saving a tutorial for a cute folded box from Martha at So Lovely Creations. And knew I wanted to finally try it out. Once the box was done, making a matching card was easy!

Here is the set.

Here is the outside of the card.
You can't really tell {because I forgot to take good pictures, and had to quickly snap these before handing the stuff off to Connie to bring home} but I used a glaze on the fish, and he's shiny and cool looking. Then I popped him out from the card.

The inside is stamped and simple. I used alphabet stamps, and parts of two other stamps that said some other holiday sentiment.

Then I lined the envelope with matching paper.

I really like my box. It looks way better in person.

And you can't really tell {again} but the scalloped circle that says "DAD" is popped up from the box as well.

Don't forget, if you wanna make your own box, the instructions are here! It was super easy!!! Thanks Martha! :o)
