A Pair of Father’s Day Cards

Hello everyone! I’m so excited that this week we’re celebrating Fathers at the American Crafts blog! It’s a great time for creating handmade goodies to show our love and gratitude to the men in our lives. The Twilight collection’s nature-based color scheme with its shades of blue and brown is the perfect way to craft some Father’s day cards! What is even more of a bonus is the bicycle, books, and radio embellishments… perfect add-ons for a masculine project. I decided to make 2 cards and because everything was perfectly coordinated in this collection they came together effortlessly!


My first card is based around the white spotted paper, which I trimmed into square. I created a pocket with stitching the blue marble patterned paper on the top. I then used a large hole punch to cut a circle from vellum and adhered with foam tape to the center of my card. I placed a bicycle sticker to the top and adhered paper stripes behind.


I placed the ‘Best Dad ever!’ message into the pocket which I created using alphabet stickers and embellished with pretty paper clips.


For the front of the second card, I used a combination of Evening and Garden tiles pattern papers. I decorated the top of the pocket with washi tape, and arranged a pretty handmade rosette to the center. For adding title I chose the Love wood veneer piece which I adhered to the inner card. 


Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today! I hope that you’ve been inspired to make some Father’s day cards of your own to give to your loved one!
