Father’s day is coming up this weekend and if you haven’t made your Father’s day cards yet, you still have a little bit of time, so why not try these fun Father’s day card-making projects that Dad is sure to love?

This first card (to the right) is from Lori Whitlock. You can find it in the the Silhouette Studio. It was only $0.99. If you buy one of our discounted download cards, you could save even more! I made this card using the Silhouette CAMEO. The card is 5″ wide by approximately 4″ tall It has little pockets on the inside that are perfect for holding a gift card to Dad’s favorite store – or you could even make little coupons to put inside.

For this card I wanted the silver to be really shiny so I used the Cricut Metallics Poster Board. This paper cuts super nice and it’s durable and heavy. I used foam adhesivesfor the pockets on the front to give it a little more dimension, as well as some brads to add that little something extra to this card.Fathers Day tool box card

This second card is a step-up-card from Lori Whitlock, which you can also purchase from the Silhouette Studio library. This card would be perfect for the Dad that is handy around the house (or at least tries to be). If you are looking for the perfect gift for Dad, you can find it at PlumbersStock.com/Milwaukee – they carry a great selection of tools at low prices.

This card was super easy to create and I also used foam adhesives on the drawers to make them look like they are open. I also used the Cricut Metallic paper to give the tools and the tool box that great shine! After finishing this card I wish I would have used some Cuttlebug folders for the drawers and the tools to give them a little more dimension, so emboss them if you like that idea.

Hope you have enjoyed these fun Father’s day cards. I would love to see your Father’s day cards you have made. Share them with me on our Google+ Paper Crafting Fanatics Page.
