Father’s Day Card – Silhouette America Blog

Father’s Day Card

Do you have a handyman in your life? I think this week’s shape was made for him, and just in time for Father’s Day even.

This toolbox card shape definitely makes me think of my own dad.  He was quite the handyman, and I like to think I got the DIYer in me from him. 🙂

So, about the shape, you’ll see when you open it that it includes all of the pieces to make the card, but it never hurts to add a little embellishment, right?  Metal seemed fitting, so I added a couple of staples and used the rhinestone setter to attach a few small metallic rhinestones.

Then, to keep the card closed I added a small glue dot to the top, center of the ‘dad’ flap.

There is plenty of room on the inside to write a short note or to include a little coupon book, and if you want to include a gift card to his favorite diy shopping spot, click here for a quick tutorial on turning this card into a gift card holder.
Happy card making!

  1. If I wasn’t on the phone when I checked this, I would have screamed! This is PERFECT for my husband, and both of our dads. Thank you, you saved my need for coming up with a card!

  2. I’m a little confused on the pieces that are cut and how to assemble the card….. any advice/tutorial how to put the pieces together?

    1. I am as well. Can anyone help?

    2. Were you able to open the video? Thanks Karen

  5. I am not sure what I am doing wrong but I can not seem to get the lighter lock piece cut! It is there on my cutting mat on computer but nothing gets cut!! Help1!

    1. Corrina, mine did the same thing…so I selected everything and then went to the cut style window page and selected cut and it worked.

      Does anyone know what envelope this card fits?

  6. How neat! I love the tutorial for how to make the cuts inside the card to insert a gift card – can see using that in b’day and Christmas cards too – thanks!

  7. I don’t understand. Isn’t this supposed to be free all week? It is now 0.75 in the store.

    1. It is not free for me either–are the Free Shapes not free for a week anymore?!?

    2. For a bit the system grouped it in with the Father’s Day shapes that went on sale today, but it’s been fixed and should be showing as free now.

  8. I show it as 75 cents…

  9. I’m with the last few posters… I thought it was free too. But, it’s $0.75 in the store.
