Hi, it’s Sue from the Dies R Us Design Team with an interactive Father’s Day card.
This card is made with Karen Burniston dies focusing on the Tool Charms and Tiny House Pop-Up dies in a 5 1/2 inch x 4 1/4 inch card base. (I used a kraft paper card base and its matching envelope.) My inspiration for this card comes from Sandy Diller.
It is simple to alter the tiny house into a toolbox by not attaching the roof and adding a side panel cut from the house die cut and then adding it to the crossbar. I used a hole punch to create the handle on the crossbar.
The tool charms are great for using up your tiny scraps. You don’t have to cut the full piece if you are piecing handles on to the silver mirror cardstock. Just cut enough beyond the piece to glue the other half onto. (I used white and brown ink to “age” my tools.)
Once you adhere the toolbox to the card’s inside fold, following the directions on the packaging, you can decorate the card as you want. (I used some woodgrain cardstock cut into planks as well a scrap that looked like a wooden candle holder and the pieces are on foam squares to add some dimension to the card.)
The “Happy Father’s Day” was cut from the words in Karen Burniston’s Word Set 1 – Greetings and Word Set 2 – Birthdays. Piecing Father and Day together from letters from various words in both sets. You could also use the new “Happy Father’s Day” sentiment by Karen Burniston.
Hope this fun card has provided some inspiration for your crafting. 😊
