Simple Father's Day Card
June 17, 2021
For Father's Day, my son and I embarked on a collaboration. He made the paper and I made the card:
He draws on newsprint, so in order to preserve the papers, I laminated the card front using a matte lamination pouch. You can see the difference between laminated and un-laminated areas in this detail photo:
I also added some dimension with a laminated heart that is folded to pop up a little, machine stitching, and the word, "Daddy," lifted up using foam adhesive.
Don't worry. Steve doesn't read my blog, so the surprise won't be ruined. :)
This is a super simple way to create a meaningful card using your child's drawings. And it's quick to make, so if you or your kids haven't yet made a Father's Day card, there's plenty of time! Also, you could use the same exact design with some grown-up scribbly drawings and I think it would look great!
Thanks for stopping by!
