For You Dad!

It's almost Father's day! Time to treat Dad on his special day, whether he's a classic or more contemporary. My cards reflect the different personalities of the important men in my life.

I am also playing along with the Man Oh Man challenge on the Heart 2 Heart Blog. Hopefully these cards give you a couple different ideas!

This first card was inspired by the Make It from Your Heart Blog and the Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge. I used the Jackson papers and some canvas sticker letters I had on hand.

The front of the card is fairly simple and straight forward.

However, when you open it your greeted with a pop-up classic car! {vroom~vroom!}

To achieve the layers of the car you will want to cut it out on your Cricut 2-3 times in different colors. Then decide what colors you want to show where and do a little further cutting and piece it all together. I used a brad for the door handle and some bigger brass brads for the center of the wheels.

While on my Cricut Design Space I saw this free Dad's day card. It was very clean and modern, I couldn't resist trying it. The Cricut cuts everything out on the base card. I simply filled in the tie with some older LaterSk8r papers and backed the interior with some black cardstock. (these cuts are also included in the free download)

My final card is also found on the Artfully Sent cartridge. Just like the previous card, all the cuts are made on the base card. I used some more Jackson papers behind the deer and backed the inside with a chocolate brown. Just a few more strips of Jackson papers and some metal brass baubles and this card is done.

Hopefully you've been inspired to create something cool for that special guy in your life! Thanks for stopping by!

I love the letters on the front of the first card. Are those fabric? Thanks for sharing with us at Heart 2 Heart.

I love all of these - each so different but so perfect for a dad somewhere! That Jackson paper pack is so versatile. Thanks for sharing your ideas with us this week at Heart 2 Heart!
