Father's Day Card for Hubby

Here's a card I made for my husband.  It's another cut from the Father's Day cartridge, designed by Curt Jensen, who was so sweet to leave me a comment on the card I made for my husband's birthday--I used the truck cut from the same cartridge.  Curt is also the designer for  Provo Craft's Campin' Critters (and others!).  I don't have that cartridge, but it looks totally adorable!

Anyway, onto the card I made.  Using the Father's Day seasonal cartridge, I cut the car at 1-3/4", which was 4-1/4" "Fit to Length."  I cut that in DCWV red glimmer cardstock.  Then I cut the car layer in black, which is the silhouette.  Then I cut the whole car again in the silver shimmer cardstock and filled in the empty spaces.  I love how it turned out!  This is a great cartridge for making those sometimes difficult cards for men.

Using Lacy Labels lite cartridge, I cut the label at 3" with a red shadow.  Then added some buttons to the corners threaded with cord.  On the inside, I used another cut from the Father's Day cartrdge for the sentiment.  That turned out great, didn't it.  Cut that at 3".

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
     My Sheri Crafts -- Father's Day, masculine cards
     Cricut Cardz Challenge -- Make a card for Father's Day
     Cooking with Cricut -- Father's Day project

I see that I've hit 200 Followers (Hurray!), so I want to say thank you to everyone that's been following me from Day 1, and to all that have joined more recently.  I've made some great friendships along the way, and sincerely appreciate your following my blog.  THANKS SO MUCH!

Thanks for stopping by, and hope the men in your life have a Happy Father's Day!


  1. Love all the shimmer! And how cool that you got a comment from Curt Jensen! :) I checked out his blog, and it's really interesting to read a designer's point of view on cartridges.

    I know your hubby will love the card. there a shiny new car attached...? :)

  2. Too cute, thanks for linking up with the Father's Day Link Up Party.

  9. Oh Pat, I came over to say Thank you so much for all your gorgeous comments on my blog. I love having you drop by brightening my days. NOW I am grumpy at my blogger dashboard because none of your latest posts have been coming up and I missed so many great projects of yours! I just had a big scroll and caught up though. I LOVE your BBQ card. All the colours in it look so great. The monster truck man card, the baby shower one, LOVE the purses card. So cute. You are so clever. You have just about sold me on getting that Fathers Day cart. You have rocked it! Good luck on the faces challenge. The papers in your baby card and his little PK face are perfect! x
