Pattern - Father's Day Card

  • Note
  • 1. Use photo as guide throughout.
  • Card
  • 1. Open card; trim 3/8" from each front edge, except fold. Cover inside back of card with purple/blue checked and card front with purple/blue sponged papers.
  • 2. Print and cut out patterns. Cut grass border pattern from purple/blue dotted paper. Adhere grass to front of card.
  • 3. Trace flag window pattern on front of card. Open card and use craft knife to cut out "window". Outline window and front of card with white pen.
  • 4. Using white floss and working from back to front, sew stick and button to card front; knot floss ends inside card.
  • 5. Transfer lettering to inside back of card with white pen so only "Dad" is visible through window.
  • Tips
  • 1. Modify patterns slightly to create sailboat window card, floating along on rolling, blue waves. Or, cut grass from green crinkle paper for added texture.
