Father’s Day Card Ideas

With Father’s Day approaching, consider using your scrapping expertise to make you Dad a unique Father’s Day card. Here we will show you how to make two special cards your Father and/or Grandfather will truly treasure.

Both cards were made from the one sheet of Art of Scraps Hearts Cut-Outs. The first card also uses Scrap-Ease Marble Gold Paper, White Cardstock, a Red Brad, Red Ladder Ribbon, Foam Tape or Pop Dots, Alphabet Stamps and Brown Ink.

Father's Day Card Ideas

To begin, cut-out one large tag, one small tag, two squares and the title banner from your sheet of cut-outs. The large tag is your base. Wrap your ribbon around the tag, adhering it to the back to hold it in place. When adhering your tag to the marble background paper, centre it and angle it left to right.

I prefer to cut the background paper to size as the last step as I it allows me to position the elements where I want and then trim away any excess background. This, however, is a matter of personal preference.

You now want to attach your small tag. To do this, I glued it into the position I wanted. I lined up the little square at the top of the tag with the bottom corner of the yellow strip on the large tag. I then angled the tag in the opposite direction to the large tag to provide a sense of balance. When you are happy with your positioning, attach your brad. Make sure it is centred in the small square at the top of the small tag and passes through all the layers, including the background marble paper.

Next, take your title banner and use your alphabet stamps and ink to stamp a word in the centre of the banner. As I was making a Father’s Day card, I chose to keep it simple and write ‘Dad.’ Of course, you can adapt this to any theme you like. Once the ink is dry, adhere your title to your card. When positioning it across your tag and background, keep it parallel to the bottom edge of your card. This will help draw attention to it.

Now all that is left to do is to add an extra three-dimensional element to your card. To do this, use foam tape or pop dots to adhere one of your squares on top of the heart square on your large tag. Instead of placing it directly on top, move it slightly to the right and angle it so the edges are parallel with the edges of your card. Take your second square and cut out the heart from the middle. Again, use your foam tape or pop dots to adhere, but this time, place it on top of the heart on your small tag. It is your choice whether you place it directly on top of the heart or whether you angle it, as I have done, to create the appearance of two hearts.

Finally, trim your background paper to size (if you haven’t already) and adhere to the cover of a white card made from white cardstock. It is up to you whether or not you leave a white border around it or not. Either way, you have a great card for Dad, and you have enough of your cut-outs left to construct a second card like the one below.

This card uses the remainder of your Art of Scraps Hearts Cut-outs, Scrap-Ease Marble Gold Paper, White Cardstock, a Red Brad, Rust Flash Fibre, Foam Tape or Pop Dots, Alphabet Stamps and Brown Ink.

While this card is a variation on the previous design and uses much of the same principles and ideas, it is also unique in its own right and great to give to a father-in-law, grandfather or Pop (as in my case) this Father’s Day.

Again, begin by cutting out the elements you need – one large tag, one small tag and one square. Once again, the large tag is your base. Wrap your Rust Flash Fibre around the tag, adhering it to the back to hold it in place. When adhering your tag to the marble background paper, centre it and angle it left to right.

As before, the second step is to adhere your small tag to your card. This time however, place it so the centre of the square at the top of the small tag is directly above the centre of the top section of your large tag. Angle your tag out to the left, in the opposite direction to your large tag. I also tucked the bottom right-hand corner under the fibre wrapping the large tag.

Once the small tag is in place, attach your brad. Make sure it is centred in the small square at the top of the small tag and passes through all the layers, including the background marble paper.

This time, you do not have a title banner. Instead, use your alphabet stamps and ink to stamp a word across the yellow strip on your large tag. As I was making a Father’s Day card for my grandfather, I chose to keep it simple and write ‘Pop.’ Of course, you can adapt this to any theme you like. Make sure you give the ink enough time to dry.

To add a little more dimension to your card, once again, use foam tape or pop dots to adhere one of your squares on top of the heart square on your large tag. Instead of placing it directly on top, move it slightly to the right and angle it so the edges are parallel with the edges of your card.

Finally, trim your background paper to size (if you haven’t already) and adhere to the cover of a white card made from white cardstock. It is up to you whether or not you leave a white border around it or not.

    I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues with your
    blog. It appears like some of the text within your content are running
    off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if
    this is happening to them as well? This could be
    a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Appreciate it

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite
    justification seemed to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they just don’t know
    about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people
    could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
    Thanks

    robably the most important thing that you would want
    to concentrate upon when running this business. It’s considered a surgical remodeling of the eye, or may also be cataract surgery.

    It is tempting to try to read all of the
    signs and words that were previously blurry, but avoid
    this temptation at least for the large part.

    Even though her father does not agree with her body art, he
    loves and supports her in everything she does. But even the women were asked to change, as actress Raquel Welch, who
    was forced to dye her dark hair blonde to fit the image of the American “good girl.
