Father's Day card


Happy Father's Day!  
Families are forever so when I saw this phrase in my new Cricut cartridge I knew it would make a great Father's Day card.  Homemade cards are always better on holidays like this too.  An extra step to show someone how important they are to you.

Cricut Machine or access to one such as in a scrapbooking store
Cartridge - Just Because Cards, Wild Card
Cardstock paper in three colors [stripes, dark green and light green]
Craft glue


Starting with the Just Because Cards cartridge, cut one 5 1/2 inch Bug using the striped cardstockThis will cut out one card with a scalloped edge.  Next, cut out a 3 1/2 inch Fishing-s using your dark green cardstockThis will cut out the oval that will be on the front of your card.  Lastly for the front, cut out one word-tree that is 4 1/2 inches in your light green cardstock.  This will cut out the phrase "Families are Forever".  Glue your green oval to the striped card and your phrase to the green oval.  Let dry.  On the inside using the dark green I cut out a phrase that says, "Happy Father's Day!" using the Wild Card cartridge.  It is under phrase-father and I did it at 4 1/2 inches.
