Father's Day...Stepper Box

Well, once again I am not following the rules of the "traditional" card for Father's Day.  I wanted to do something unique again for this holiday, just the same as I did for Mother's Day.  But, knowing that the men in my life, aren't quite as appreciative of the "crafty" things I had to go with something less elaborate.  Well have you heard of the old saying "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach"?  Well, this was my inspiration for their "Card".  I saw this card, on lots of other blogs and pictures, but no really clear instructions.  Most were either not in English measurements or just plain confusing or not clear on measurements or scoring or what to do with what paper...Soooo, I did some research and comparing and started out with a little from this site and a little from another site and Waaalaaaa!  This is what I came up with.  Not bad if I do say so myself!  Well, once I had a template, I made this one.  It was not hard at all.  I was trying to keep the design simple yet very nice for these wonderful Dad's in my life.

I used:
K&Company Designer Paper: Amy butler
Gray, bright blue, lime green cardstock from Michael's
Potpourri Basket Cartridge
Blackletter Cartridge
Martha Stewart Punch (Can't remember the name) for the scollop boarder on the lid
Father's Day Stamp from my stash
Silver Ribbon from Michael's (Christmas)
Plastic Rhinestones
Metallic Dots from Joann's

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. 
Thanks for looking and I hope you have a very wonderful day.
