Happy Father's Day! — By: Paris Dukes

This classic, handmade card is the perfect way to show your appreciation for all the things Dad does. Make it for your own father or grandfather, or make one for that special father-in-law or spouse to say “Thanks!” on his big day!

Instructions

For the Card Front:

  1. Turn the card so the fold is at the top. Cover the card front with black mesh paper, leaving the left side unglued. Trim the excess paper even with the top and bottom edges of the card front. Cut a 4" wide piece of red mesh paper and tear along the left edge. Glue the red mesh paper over the right side of the card front. Cut one 6" length each of black grosgrain and black/white/grey ladder ribbons. Lay the grosgrain ribbon vertically about 1 1/4" from the left edge of the card and layer the ladder ribbon on top of the grosgrain ribbon. Wrap the ends of both ribbons around the top and bottom edges of the black mesh paper, secure on the back with clear adhesive tape and finish gluing the black mesh paper to the card front.
  2. Cut out the quote to a long rectangle with about 1 1/4" of blank space on  the left of the quote. Mat the quote on black glimmer paper, trimming the mat to 1/8". Add one silver mini brad to the top of each of the letters that spell “father”. Center the quote on the card front, tucking the left end under the ribbon length. Glue in place.
  3. Use a black pen to journal “Happy Father’s Day!” onto the circular red mesh tag. Add one silver mini brad to the tab, then use foam tape to attach the tag centered over the ribbon length, overlapping the left end of the card quote.

For the Card Inside:

  1. Cut a 1" wide strip of black mesh paper and glue it 1 1/4" from the left edge of the card, trimming the excess paper even with the bottom edge of the card.
  2. Mat the quote on black glimmer paper, trimming the mat to 1/8". Glue the quote about 7/8" from the left edge of the card, centered between the top and bottom edges.
