Father’s Day Picture Card

With this Father’s Day Picture Card you can include a picture of Dad or maybe his kids or grandkids.  It actually holds several pictures and is a nice way to send Dad some pictures of his favorite people.

Because of the foam tape you can put a lot of pictures in this card and send them.  It fits in an A7 envelope for mailing.  And Dad will get a chuckle out of the message.

You will need:
        • Heavy 2 sided cardstock for the base
        • Various Cardstock scraps
        • Pen
        • Glue
        • Foam Tape
        • Download File
Paper Selection

I did this Fathers Day Picture card in shades of brown.  You can choose any color you want.  The base card needs to be two sided because you do see a little of both sides, but not much.  Patterns would work well with any part of this card as long as the pen showed up.  Just don’t use too many patterns.  This would get confusing.

Cutting the card

Cut the card base and the Cricut will do the writing.  I used both a white and black gel pen.  Did you know that you can use any pen in your Cricut?  You can see the trick here.  I used a font called Ambition Booker and you can get it free at Freeforfonts.com.

Assembling the Father’s Day Picture Card

First re-crease the fold.  Attach the inside of the frame first.  Use thin foam tape down each side for this.  That gives the space to slip several pictures in.  To do this, first lay a picture on the back of the base card over the hole.  Then place the foam tape on three of the edges making sure not to touch the picture.  Leave the top open.  That way you can add pictures and Dad can remove them later.  Then remove the picture and stick the blank light brown piece behind the hole.  This holds the pictures in the frame.

Attach the embellishments too the card.  Lastly insert the picture(s) into the card.

And your Father’s Day Picture Card is done.  It fits in an A7 envelope for mailing.
