Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day!!!!

SPOILER ALERT!

Hey Dad, your cards are in this post, so if you keep reading you will see them.  Because, like always, they are not in the mail.  OK, I don’t know if the one my sister is sending you is in the mail yet or not, but I do know mine has not yet shipped.

 

Love you!

 

I made this card for my cousin to give her dad.

This is just a basic card for dads, there is no theme, but I really like it.

Inside is a simple pop-up that says “Dad” so from front to inside it reads “Happy Father’s Day Dad”

I really like the way the front turned out.  I just used colored card-stock and a patterned scrapbook paper.  I made sure there was no distance between the rectangles when cutting the patterned paper.  I used Silhouette‘s print and cut feature for the front sentiment.

I used sketch pens on the letters before cutting them out.

I think the card is elegant and still masculine.

My sister asked me to make a card for our dad, but she requested it be different from the one I would give him.

So I made this one for her to send.  I think it fits her and her family pretty good, as they are (well, really, we all are) huge Star Wars & LEGO fans.

The LEGO Darth Vader was also part of the blog hop I talked about here.

I wanted to do something different for my dad, than just another card.  I have seen all the fun puns on Pinterest saying “World’s Best Pop” attached to a soda bottle.  But my Dad lives out-of-town, and really I didn’t want to give him some soda.

At SVG Cuts I found this soda bottle in their Surf Shack kit and knew it would be perfect.

Using the bottle, I made a custom label, for the base and the neck.  I also used the print and cut feature to decorate the bottle top.

The base label says “Happy Father’s Day to the Worlds Best Pop” which I again used the print and cut feature.  I filled it with candy for him to enjoy.

I think it is quite a unique card and I had a blast making it.

 

Happy Crafting
