Happy Father's Day

 Here is a card I have made using the Debbi Moore Shabby Chic Garden - Decoupage in a Box CD for my son to give to his.  His dad loves his garden although it would be a lot easier to have a flat garden than the elevated garden he's had to terrace.
 For the decoupage in a box card you print off the inner tray, the decoupage, two outer backing pieces which make the folded card and I printed off a sheet of embellishments and toppers as well to make sure I filled up the card and I also used one of the frames.
 It is certainly a labour of love to make a card like this as it can be a bit fiddly and time consuming but the effect at the end is well worth it.  As the decoupage has its own little tray to sit in it means that you can use quite thick foam pads to get a good elevation.
Here is a close-up of the decoupage image.  My husband would love a garden like that.
