Make This DAD Word Card For Father’s Day

Using the new offset tool I made this Father’s Day Word Card. But you don’t have to design it. Just make it in minutes. It is so simple that it is the perfect Beginner Card.  My Dad passed a few years ago. Every year I send a card to my brother who puts it next to the tree where we spread his ashes.

Dad will be thrilled that you remembered him on his day!  This card fits into an A7 envelope or you can make your own matching envelope for mailing.  Just use my custom envelope tutorial here. 

You will need:
Paper Selection

The base card of this Dad word card does not need to be two sided because I made a copy to put over the front.  This means I can write (draw) on both sides of the card.   As you can see, 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 DAD Word Card

Cut the card base and the Cricut will do the writing.  I used a gold gel pen.  Did you know that you can use any pen in your Cricut?  You can see the trick here.  I used one of my own fonts on this card called CMV Pinstripe.  I got frustrated when fonts didn’t fill in when drawn, so I made my own.  See all of my fill in fonts here and read how to get them.

Be careful removing the tools from the mat so that they don’t get torn.

Dad Word Card Assembly

First re-crease the fold.  Then glue the extra copy of DAD to the front of the card.  Next, center and layer the light and medium layers on top.

Next, glue the tools on inside of the card around the writing.  Then glue the Happy Father’s Day to the top inside of the card.

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