Make a Masculine Father’s Day Card with Tools

Masculine Fathers Day Card with Tools

Making cards for Dad can be a bit challenging, mainly because coming up with Masculine Ideas proves to be challenging in the craft world. Today we have you covered, with a fun card that is sure to make your dad seem with delight!

Today we are making a Masculine Father’s Day Card with tools and we just know you are going to be impressed! The NEW ‘5708-01D Wood Plank Panel Die‘ is perfect for Father’s Day cards!! With a little added ink the background looks like real wood!! Also, wait until you see the inside of the card for a fun little detail that really made us smile! Follow along as our amazing designer, Kendra, walks us through the steps to create this Father’s Day masterpiece!

How to make this card:

  • Kendra started her card by creating an A2 sized card base.
  • Die cut the ‘5708-01D Wood Plank Panel Die‘ from kraft cardstock two times.
  • Add Color Fuse Ink ‘Pecan‘ to both die cut backgrounds. (This really is a nice addition to the background, it brings out the wood grain a little more!!) Adhere one background to card base.
  • Die cut largest circle from ‘5527D Peek-a-Boo Triple Cover Die‘ from kraft paper and one from the other wood plank background, towards the top so that we can use the bottom half later. Adhere plank circle to the kraft cardstock circle. (This helps stabilize the die cut plank circle) (Set the scrap plank background aside for later)
  • Add ‘Pecan‘ ink around the circle.
  • Die cut second from largest circle from ‘5527D Peek-a-Boo Triple Cover Die‘ from white cardstock. Stamp ‘You’re HANDY to have around sentiment from ‘3419 Dad Phrases‘ stamp set ink black ink. Adhere to wood plank circle with foam dots. Adhere to card base near bottom left.
  • Die cut ‘5409-02D Tools Die‘ from silver foil and blue cardstock. Die cut just the hand saw handle from kraft paper. Adhere tools together. If you don’t want to ‘waste’ and of the extra tools cut out, you can use the color paper you don’t want to use behind the ‘good tool’ to help make your tools stronger. So for example: glue foil silver wrench on top of blue cardstock wrench. Glue foil silver saw blade on top of the die cut blue saw blade and the kraft saw handle on the blue handle. You don’t need to do this, but it does help make the tools stronger! It also gives your tools a little more dimension. You could also otherwise just place your cardstock you are using just over the pieces you want to die cut, but I find just cutting all the tool pieces easiest. Kendra hates taking the chance of her cardstock shifting on her. Adhere tools around sentiment to your liking. (Keep saw and one extra tool for the inside)
  • Finish card front by adding three silver brads to top right of card. Kendra still has brads in her stash even though she doesn’t use them much anymore. Kendra wanted to use them on this card since they look like nail heads. Kendra used her wire cutter to trim the back prongs off and then adhered them to her card base with glue.

Let’s finish the inside of this card too!! Kendra normally doesn’t always finish the inside of her cards right away, but she had a fun idea and couldn’t add it to the front of the card like she wanted to, so she decided to add it inside!

  • Die cut the smallest rectangle from ‘5425D Mini Slimline Nested with Stitch‘ from white cardstock. Stamp the script ‘Happy Father’s Day’ from ‘3419 Dad Phrases‘ in black ink.
  • Using the scrap plank background from earlier, cut 1 1/2″ off the bottom. Adhere sentiment piece to top.
  • Add saw to one of the cut openings on top to look as though it is cutting through the paper! Adhere to the inside of your card.
  • Add one tool to the bottom right of the sentiment.

We LOVE this card so much! We don’t know about you, but we are a bit OBSESSED with the saw cutting the father’s day sentiment on the inside of the card. What a fun little EXTRA thing to do that really makes this masculine Father’s Day card pop!
