Vintage Gentleman Father's Day Card

This card is very simple but lots of fun to make. I used Trimcraft First Edition True Blue papers and Vintage Gentleman dies to make the card. These elements combine well with kraft card, so I used this for a change.

I started with a square kraft card blank and added a piece of one of the papers. I then took a smaller square of kraft card and used 3 of the Vintage Gentleman dies to cut a hat, glasses and moustache. I wanted to use the apertures in the card so made sure I placed the dies carefully to get the look I wanted.

I cut three small pieces of different papers and glued these behind the apertures I had made with the dies. I attached the square of kraft card onto the card blank using 1mm depth foam pads.

Finally, I stamped the Best Dad sentiment onto another piece of kraft card and attached with foam pads.

Dads can be very difficult to buy for so I like the idea of a quirky card that will suit most of them. I'm very pleased with the end result. Thanks for visiting x
