Cut it out Monday - Father's Day Card

     Hello all I'm back. It has been so long since I have filmed or created something on camera to share with you. I have been busy with just life and then this crappy cold that has been hanging around for last three weeks. I am finally tired of trying to beat it myself so I am going to the doctors tomorrow and hopefully they can help get rid of the yuck. This is not how I wanted my summer vacation to start. Where did the year go? It seemed like we just had spring break and now this is my kids last week of school. Not sure I am ready for them to be home all the time lol. 

     Anyways on to the project at hand. Father's day is this Sunday (again where did the time go) and I wanted to make my dad a card. But trying to come up with something for him is not always easy. He's not into fishing but he is into football. He dose have a lot of tool but doesn't really use them much so the typical type of father's day cards don't really fit him. I know I could do a football themed card but then I am stuck when it comes to he's birthday. So as i was searching the web for something, I don't remember what, I found a picture of a recliner and that's when it hit me. This would make a great card for him. Now he no longer owns a recliner but he dose sit in a arm chair and has a foot stool so I think that's close enough to a recliner don't you?

     I found an image of a recliner in Cricut Design Space that I liked. It's a simple image which makes this an easy card to make. I laid it all out on my mat and once I was happy with the sizing it was just a matter of coming up with a fitting sentiment. I used Simple Celebrations font and had the machine do the writing on some Stone colored cardstock which I had cut out to be 4 x 5.25. I then took some scraps of red and black cardstock and cut out the image. I glues the chair together using some Tombow Mono. I took some 110 lbs white cardstock and folded that at 4.25 to make a top folding card. I then used the same glue and glued down the front panel to the card base. Once that was in place I add the chair. 
     For the inside of the card I had the same size stone colored cardstock and using the same font just put Happy Father's Day on it. I then glued that to the inside of the card base and may card is finished.

     This not only makes a great simple father's day card but you can total use it as a birthday card as well, just remove Happy Father's Day. I really love this card. Now i just have to figure out what to do for my husband who is even harder or a guy to make a card for lol. 

     Thank you all for hanging in there with me and joining me for today's card. I will have another video for you on Wednesday so stay turned for that. And hopefully I will be able to keep up with blog post and videos even after the kids get out of school.

Happy Crafting
