We love the layered effect on this charming father’s day card. To make take a 5x 7 kraft card and cover the inside with scooter print Man Made paper, cover the outside with the cool chevron print. Using a 3cm scalloped circle die or punch, cut out three holes down the right hand side.  Cut more scooter print card to 6.5 x 15.5cm and stick on the left hand side of the card. Cut a strip of chevron card 2 x 15 cm, cut the bottom end to flag points and glue on top of the scooter print. Cut out the letters DAD and stick in the cut out windows. Finish by wrapping with a length of twine around the front of the card and tying with a bow, then add a Man Made scooter brad.
