Simple Father's Day Card

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!
