Father's Day Award

This card is for my Father-in-law, my own father having passed away a number of years ago now. Firstly, I created a dual-layered rosette using my Cameo - (the orange paper does have a pattern to it but it doesn't show!) and I used my glue-gun to secure the folds together, setting the folded 'circles' onto circular bases making them very sturdy before adhering together and adding the centre-pieces. I used the glue gun for it's immediate 'grab'  - necessary for the 'jumpy' nature of a concertinaed circle.  The 'DAD' banner, again evidence of the Cameo again, created by welding the chosen font onto the created frame-work and a similar-sized banner placed behind it to form a navy base layer  - with another cut from orange spotted paper for the other 'ribbon' of the rosette.

Following the design layout at MOJO, I then created the required 'rounded-off' square giving this a chevron design using all the colours suggested by ColourQ. I chose the orange colour as the main 'pop' not just because it is 'bright & happy' but also because it is the team colour of Blackpool's football team, the team he supports. The extended version of this shaped layer was embossed using the chevron embossing folder from Die-sire Embossalicious in white card.  I think that all the white gives the card a very clean, crisp fresh look & really sets off the given colourway. Hope he likes it!
