Porthole Tri-Fold Father's Day Card

Yay! I finally got my Hubby's Father's Day Card made.  I used Cheryl's awesome new file - Centerfold Flower Card file from and I left off the flowers and added a few other items to make it a masculine card.  I love being creative and making something beautiful into something else beautiful In a whole other direction 💜
If you stop by tomorrow you can see my centerfold flower card as the file was meant to be used with the flowers which you can buy Here -
I created my own svg for the porthole by layering a silver circle on top of a smaller black circle, I added the 8 brads thru both of those layers... Then I added another black circle behind with foam squares in between each open Brad clasp to pop it up.  I then, as you can see only adhered it to the left side of the card.  The banner for the sentiment is a die cut from spellbinders that I used my ScanNCut to cut a shadow layer to back it... Love how that turned out!  I stamped the sentiment and only adhered the banner again to the left side of the card only.
