My Dad is always hard to make a card for as he doesn't have any hobbies I could use as a basis for a card. He's not really a craft interested sort of chap so putting buttons and twine etc on his card would basically be just wasting my stash!!
I made this card for him using my Papercraft Factory CD Colour Me Happy, the Jovial Man collection. I layered up the letters for DAD in the work space putting the dark blue letters over the green and printing them straight out to cut out. It was really easy, just sizing the green letters to what size I wanted for the card and then layered the blue ones over the top resizing them until they all matched. The guide lines that appear (pink lines) when the letters were lined up exactly the same made it really easy. The backing paper is from the same collection and I used the writer on the CD using the Impact Label font to write Happy Birthday. Once I had everything printed out it was a simple card to put together.
I cut off the bottom right hand corner of the backing paper just to try to make it a bit more interesting, doodled a line around the backing paper and then stuck on the sentiment and the DAD letters. At the last moment I decided to add staples to the sentiment just to give it a little handmade feel!
It's my turn for an inspiration post over on the Get Funky Challenge Blog tomorrow so I'll see you again there and here with that.
Speak again very soon.
