Best Dad Ever - Joy Fold Card

Sometimes it takes me awhile to come up with a card.  Most times, I do end up wasting paper.  Even though this is frustrating, I find that the end result is worth the few pennies of cardstock.  This masculine card is a Joy Fold Card.  If you look at the picture you will see that there is a smaller card centered in the middle of the main card base.  I used a Hodgepodge Hardware to hold the smaller card closed.  The picture on the bottom shows the smaller card opened.
