Father’s Day Humorous Card 2020

This Father’s Day humorous Card goes together so easily.   It would make a great first project for any beginner.  It is a remake of a card I did last year.  I never liked the backing showing.  So I fixed it.  

And Dad will get a chuckle out of the message.  Tell Dad that he is your “favorite parent” with this simple card.

You will need:
        • Heavy cardstock
        • Vellum ( if you want)
        • Cardstock scraps
        • Pen
        • Glue
        • Download File
Paper Selection

This card looks best if made with solid colors.  I tried it with patterns and the words on the front got lost.  Vellum can be used for the backing or you can use cardstock.  I used cardstock this time.  The mustache can be made in any color your dad likes.   Any weight paper can be used for any part because it has multiple layers..

Cutting the Father’s Day Humorous Card

If you are using vellum, cut it carefully.  When cutting it on the Cricut, make sure that it is sealed tight to the mat.   Any air bubbles or slightly less sticky spots causes the vellum to rip.  If you don’t want to use vellum, plain cardstock will do, too.

Cut the card base and the Cricut will do the writing.  I used a black gel pen.  The font used is called Antiqueline and you can get it for free at Dafont.com.

Assembling the Card

First re-crease the fold lines on each of the base cards.  Then Glue the vellum or cardstock  to the inside of one of the base cards. Put the glue on the cut out side so no glue gets on the backing  where the holes are. 

Next glue the other base card repeating the gluing process above.  Make a vellum or cardstock sandwich.  Lastly attach the mustache and tie to the front of the card.

And you’re Father’s Day humorous Card is done. See I told you that it was simple.

I found these wonderful “wood grain” A2 envelopes at JoAnn’s that are just perfect for this Father’s Day Card.

Enjoy.
