You asked, and here’s a quick Fathers Day card to make. You can see exactly how to make it in my YouTube live replay!
Recently I sent a question out to my Facebook Group, Design with Jo VIPeeps asking what is the most challenging card to make.
The overwhelming response?
So I want to spend a little time with you over the next few posts and videos providing some ideas you can CASE for cards for the guys in your life. These are
- quick to put together
- geared in colours and styles for the fellas
- incorporate interesting elements males won’t think are too “pretty”, and
- feature some fun techniques so you have a ball creating!
This Dad’s Day card is ideal!
I showcased the Gone Fishing bundle (161542) for this card, utilizing the greeting (which I love!) and image stamps and a couple of the diecuts for interest.
ANYone who loves the simplicity of sitting for hours in a boat on on the shore with a line in the water will appreciate the designs you make with this bundle.
Why do I Like Bundles?
For many reasons. Here are just a few. They:
- already are fully coordinated by the artists at Stampin’ Up!
- have multiple elements so you won’t get bored crafting, and
- you can save 10% over the individual cost of the stamps and dies if you purchase them separately!
Take a closer look so you can see how many parts and pieces it has!
The sentiment stamps in particular drew me in to this set. The font is so different. A mix of fun with the little diamonds accenting the middle of some of the key words. And the writing font mimicking your own handwriting…but so much better!
What dad – or just plain old guy – wouldn’t love to get a card from you with these images?
If you like to get a deal AND love how bundles make it easy to create, take a quick peek at these double embossed peek through daisies card featuring the Cheerful Daisies Bundle. One for dad, one for mom!!
Quick Fathers Day Card to Make
This card goes together surprisingly quickly.

The waves die image was the very first thing I wanted to use from the set. I immediately pictured them along the bottom of a card.
There’s a couple little tricks to adding them you’ll want to know. Did you catch them in the video?
And even though it’s a guy card, the little bit of shimmer from the Soft Shimmer Specialty paper is perfect in the lures and heart.
You’ll also find a quick tip for the heart and the jute twine knot. Be sure to check it out!
