Original Father's Day Card

Every year since becoming a demonstrator I make my husband's Father's Day card. Here is this years creation. Maybe you can use it as inspiration for a masculine birthday card? The majority of the products are retired, but the new Jar Punch and Mason Jar Shaker Domes were fun to fill with all the loose screws we had in our junk drawer. 

Here's a hint: I glued the entire piece of polka dot paper to a Whisper White piece the same size (4" x 5-1/4"), then I needed to cut across the double layer just below where the woodgrain paper was going, so I could punch out the jar shape easily.  Be sure to take into consideration the margin needed for the adhesive edges of the Mason Jar Shaker Dome prior to punching the jar out. Then I saved the punched out jar and glued it to a 1/4" larger scrap of Whisper White all around. So when I put the jar punch-out back into position after filling the jar with the collected screws, the adhesive portion of the shaker dome had a secure spot to adhere to. I scotch taped the edges of my extra piece to the back of the whisper white original layer. Then I taped the lower piece of Whisper White I had cut off back in place to be ready for the card base. (By doing this the screws wouldn't fall out when I put the Early Espresso card base in place.)
