“Dad” card

Last year I made hybrid cards for our fathers for Father’s Day:

I started with a simple 5.5″ x 8″ rectangle and added a 5″ x 7.5″ mask in the center. This allowed me to easily layer two papers to create the background. I printed these onto white cardstock, cut to size and scored it at the 4″ line to create the fold.

Next, I opened a pennant flag element from the Give Thanks kit and added “DAD” using brushes. I printed these onto white cardstock as well, cut out and then adhered to the cards with adhesive backed foam to give the design a bit of dimension.

Simple as that and they each had a beautiful handmade card.

Are you making cards this year? I’d love to see. Share a link to the post or image in the comments section. 🙂
