Father's Day Card with Free Tutorial

Father's Day 2015 is almost here, which means that half of the year is gone. Wow!  Hobby Lobby even has Fall and Christmas crafts items out already. Can someone please slow down the time? Hahahahaha. I wish. Anyway, jokes aside, I wanted to make a card for someone really special: my sister's father-in-law. He and his wife embraced my husband, my son, and me as if we were part of their family. They call our son grandson, and he calls them Nanny and Papa. So here is the card I made for Papa for Father's Day, and the link to the video with measurements to make a s-shaped card. 

 Supplies used for this card
Paper: Brown and white cardstock
Tools: Embossing machine, deep stripes embossing folder (The Paper Studios), computer, and printer
Embellishments: "screws" - I used black and silver fine tip gel pens to draw the screws holding the signs 'Papa you are a classic'

Card completely open

My Dad went to heaven 22 years ago, but my family and I have been blessed enough having someone like my sister's father-in-law to celebrate Father's Day with. If you have your father still, make sure to let him know how important and special he is. If not, make a card for a father who doesn't have his kids anymore.
Thank you for stopping by, and may God bless you and yours.
