Tell dad he’s the best with this awesome shirt card for Father’s Day. The pocket holds the ticket that tells dad that he’s a number one dad. On this special day made to celebrate dad give him this easy to make handmade card to show your love and appreciation that you have for him.
Create a 4 ½” x 6 ¼” card base from cardstock. This size of card is also known as an A6 card size.
Cut a 4” x 6” piece of patterned paper (Boardwalk by Bo Bunny shown) and attach it to the base making sure to line the top of the paper up with the top of the card. For this design there should not be an edge around the top.
Create the solid (blue) collar by cutting a piece of cardstock into a rectangle that measures 3” x 4”.
Place it in your paper trimmer lining the left top corner up with the 2” mark on the trimmer and make the cut down.
Attach the triangular piece using a tape runner to the top of the card making sure to line up the long, straight edge with the top.
Repeat these steps using a 2” x 3” piece of patterned paper and lining it up at the 1 ¾” mark on the trimmer to create the smaller collar piece.
Attach the buttons down the right side of the shirt using a glue pen.
Now cut a piece of 2” x 3” piece of cardstock (you can also use patterned paper) and make a mark in the middle of the paper.
Rotate it and mark 1” up from the bottom on each side as shown.
Line up one of the marks on the edge and the bottom mark and make the cut. Line up the second edge mark and the bottom and cut again. This will create the pocket for the card. Attach it using a tape runner. Be sure not to adhere the top of the pocket closed.
Use the ticket punch by Little B to create the tickets. Tear off one of the ends to give it a torn look.
