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.
