Father's Day Cards



As Father’s Day quickly approaches, many are struggling to find the perfect male-oriented card designs. I have done several. I used the shirt card on several occasions. It is a fun and easy card to do.

I have done the toolbox card, an apron card, and a grill card as well. They work great for guys with those interests. But what if he isn’t into that?

I think my favorite card for male recipients (as well as kids and teens) is the pop-up box card. They are so easy to personalize for anyone! Take a moment, jot down a few things he is interested in. I recently made a birthday card for 26-year-old bachelor. This is what I had to do. He coaches baseball and football, he hangs out with friends, has a boxer puppy and when he was 2 years old, he was chased by a big white goose – which he still hates to this day!

I pulled out some Anna Griffin die cuts that included the football, baseball, liqueur bottle, and the football stats card. Then I searched for a boxer and a goose png. I uploaded those 2 images into Cricut Design Space and created a shadow layer for them. I cut out my pop-up box card file, did a little embossing of the layers and used some gilding wax to accent them, and then assembled the card. 

I have done several versions of this card; mostly for male recipients. Regular cards generally conform to a theme. The theme of these cards is the recipient, so you can easily mix and match images that apply to their interests.

If you are struggling this Father’s Day, give this card a try!
