For this handmade Fathers day card, I purchase an e-book called 50 Card Making Sketches and used one of the sketches.
I used sketch #49 and revised the card a little bit but the sketch helped me with the foundation and I just added and adjusted pieces of the card. I think the paper the author uses is a little outdated but you can use your own paper to make unique cards. The author includes instructions and measurements so that makes card making easier and faster.

When I make Fathers Day cards, I often use muted tones and for this handmade Fathers Day card, I used a paper card stack called Latte. It has coordinating paper so I didn't have to hunt around for solid color scrapbook paper to match the print.
Create Fathers Day cards using vellum for the sentiment and punch out letters to spell "DAD". I typed the sentiment on my computer and added a thin border around it. I then used my laser printer on vellum paper.
Make a Fathers Day card using grey ribbon and a silver leaf embellishment. I knotted a grey ribbon along the bottom of the sentiment and inserted a metal leaf embellishment through the knot of this happy Fathers Day card. It's a little more masculine than adding a flower.
Make handmade fathers day cards that is inspired by a sketch and one that dad will appreciate.
