Father’s Day Card Idea

June 7, 2016

If you read previous posts on my blog you may have seen the Birthday Card I created in May for my niece Mollie. This card is inspired by that card which was created from a kit i purchased: Craftwork Cards Celebrations Stamps with Candle Cards. After putting that in-progress card away in the evening (frustrated I might add) and then having an idea to “make it work” in the morning (I must craft in my sleep sometimes) to fix the problems I had assembling it, I fell in love with that card. I know some of you know what I am talking about – I have seen posts where people shared something they created for someone and love it so much that they could not part with it. I have been at craft shows where people mentioned purchasing cards to give away and they love them so much they keep them.

After making that card I tried to think of ideas for what else could “pop out” of the top of the card. Here is a Father’s Day idea I came up with; this is the card as it is pulled from the envelope:

2016007-Jim's-Father's-Day-card-closed

And here is what the card looks like when the “tab” is pulled:

2016007-Jim's-Father's-Day-card-open

I created a Cricut® Design Space file using the basic shapes to cut the card base including the notch at the bottom of the card. I then used Biker (#M3FF90) and Biker (#M3EAF5) from Dude! to create the “pop up” and decorate the front of the card. I found a checkered flag image online that I printed. I die cut the flag and biker from cardstock using Tattered Lace Severn Dovetails. I stamped “Pull” and “Happy Father’s Day” in Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink Pad (Z899) using My Acrylix™ Tiny Typewriter Alphabet Stamp Set (D1222) – retired and My Acrylix™ August 2015 SOTM: Framed Stamp Set (S1508) – retired.

I think this is a perfect card for someone who likes to ride or watch motocross.

What ideas do you have for something to “pop out” of a card similar to this? I am always looking for ideas. I also love to read what people think of my crafty creations. If you have a moment, please leave a comment. Thank you for visiting today.
