Father's Day Card and Manly Sea Eagles Bookmark - CraftOnline Creative Team

This year due to circumstances beyond our control we had to celebrate Father's Day with my Father In-law a couple of weeks late, so today I am sharing with you the projects I created for him for Father's Day.

I always struggle with ideas for my Father In-law so when creating a project for him gathering together a sort of kit that could work for something that suits his interests really helps me create something for him.  So keeping in mind what his career was and his love of the Manly Sea Eagles I decided I would need some products that could work with a grungy sort of travel theme or some sort of Sea Eagles project.

Check out my video to see how I created a bookmark and card for the person in my life that I struggle the most for gift ideas.

The X-Press It Double Sided Foam Tape and Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots really helped give my card dimension.
The Helmar Crystal Kote Matte Varnish sealed the distress inks so they won't run if the bookmark or card were to get wet.

The Dorland's Wax Medium sealed my alphas beautifully, they aren't coming up now.

I love how the card and bookmark turned out.
