Decorating Dad

A very male card for the DIY dads. I decided that I wanted the sentiment to burst out of the wallpaper so this gave the card dimension. To do this I cut my paper into strips and curled it around a pencil in varying places.

I added some extra rolls of wallpaper at the bottom.

Glossy Accents was used to make his glasses look real and also for the wallpaper paste in the tin and on the roller.
