Make a card for your Dad

Its just over a week til Father’s day and so all of the shops are filled with cards and gifts for Dad.

I always like to make a card so I thought I would share with you some card making ideas that can be great fun to make!

spotty overlay Spots!

Make a template of whatever shape you like and then stamps paint dots around it  making sure to overlap with the edge of the template as you go.

Another way to make this craft work if you don’t want the mess of paints is to scribble all round the edge of the template with coloured pens!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

stampsStamps!

Make your own stamps and layer them up on different coloured paper.

You could even add Washi tape to give it that proper scrapbook feel!

 

 

 

 

 

string art String Art!

You can easily make this work for a card by punching holes into paper using a pin or a needle and then using embroidery floss to make your design. Then stick another piece of card onto the back to hide all the messy knots and loose ends.

 

 

 

 

leaf cut outsLeaf Cut outs!

This might be a better craft for the Autumn when the leaves are dried out and all beautiful colours but you could always use the same idea with different pieces of coloured card or paper.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now I have so many ideas I just need to decide on one and get making!

      I actually did this for Mothers Day earlier in the year but I didnt have any pian so I did the trick with the coloured pens around a flower template and it worked really well!
