Fathers Day Card

Not such a demand for mens cards at work, and therefore Fathers Day, as I mainly sell cards to men for wife's birthdays & wedding anniversaries - not a bad thing though as got far too much to do at the moment!

I made a card for my father in law though and you may not be surprised to know - I made a box card!!

The cover is made with some lovely pearlescent black card from Craftwork Cards.

I have kept the front simple.  The square layers have been edged with SU scallop trim border and corner punch (I've just noticed you can't get the corner punch any more - that is criminal!).

Simple oval scallop punch on top with 'Dad' added in peel offs and mounted with 3D pads.

Instead of ribbon on this I've used some of the fab, but now discontinued, elastic silver cord from SU (of course).

Scallop border punch also used for the box element inside.

The image is DOCrafts Wellington Bear from the ultimate die cut pack - the picture doesn't really do the layers justice.

Layered on a bit of black for a highlight.

Sentiment from old American set 'And Many Mower' (watch out for more of this set soon), punched out with SU word window and layered on modern label.

The recipient was thrilled and really interested in how long it took and how it was made - all secret of course!


  1. This just shows the versatility of these box cards Jill. Love the clean lines on the front and adore your Wellington Bear - perfect for Fathers Day or male birthdays in general.

  2. Wellington is definitely a man's bear and this is a great box card - no wonder he loved it. How silly to discontinue that corner punch.
