Father’s Day Card

Created by Sophia Vida (measures 5″ x 6″)

Wee Memories is having Challenge #64 – Masculine Card (WMC64). This is my first challenge so I thought I would give it a whirl with this tri-fold card.

Materials Needed:

  • Bazzill Citrus Cardstock
  • Bazzill Dark Brown Cardstock
  • Bazzill Copper Cardstock
  • Frances Meyer World Map Cardstock
  • Deja Views – Printed Cardstock (Global Views Pad)
  • Thin Copper Metal Sheet
  • Great Impressions – World’s Greatest Dad Stamp
  • StazOn Solvent Ink – Stone Gray
  • Stickles – Star Dust
  • Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug A2 D’vine Swirls
  • 2 Pearl White Buttons 7/16″
  • 7″ Brown Shimmer Ribbon
  • Rust Colored Pencil
  1. Cut a 12″ x 6″ piece of cardstock.
  2. To make the accordion folds mark your cream cardstock at 3-1/2″ and at 7.” Then fold the cardstock on these marks. The first and second panels will measure 3-1/2″ and the back panel will measure 5.”
  3. Cut a 4-3/4″ square on your patterned cardstock. Glue this to the back panel.
  4. Cut a 3-1/4″ x 5-3/4″ piece on your copper cardstock. Glue this on top of the patterned cardstock on the back panel in step 3.
  5. Cut a 3-1/4″ x 5-3/4″ piece from your world map cardstock. Glue this piece to the inside middle panel.
  6. Cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ piece from your dark brown cardstock.
  7. Cut a 3-1/4″ x 5-3/4″ piece from your copper cardstock. Glue this on top of the dark brown cardstock in step 6.
  8. Cut a 3″ x 5-1/2″ piece from your world map cardstock. Glue this on top of the copper cardstock in step 7.
  9. Cut 2 pieces of brown shimmer ribbon measuring 3-1/2″ each. Adhere these diagonally across the top and bottom left corners. Wrap the edges under the dark brown cardstock.
  10. Glue your layered cardstock pieces you just made in steps 6 through 9 to the top of the front panel (you will not see the citrus cardstock).
  11. Glue a button to the top and bottom left diagonal corners.  
  12. Cut a 3-1/4″ x 2-1/4″ piece of dark brown cardstock.
  13. Cut a 3″ x 2″ piece of copper cardstock. Glue this piece on top of the small dark brown cardstock in step 12.
  14. Cut a 2-3/4″ x 1-3/4″ piece of the copper metal sheet. Run this through the Cuttlebug A2 D’vine Swirls embossing folder. Glue this on top of the copper cardstock in step 13.
  15. Using Great Impressions World’s Greatest Dad, stamp it on white cardstock. Color the inside with a rust colored pencil. Use Stickles Star Dust to outline the word “DAD” and the 4 rivets.
  16. Once dry, cut out the stamp image. Use foam squares to adhere the stamped image on top of the embossed copper metal piece in step 14.
  17. Glue this layered piece (shown above) on top of the front panel. You want about 1″ to hang off of the front panel and overlap the bottom panel.

Voila! You have a beautiful tri-fold card.

  1. Masculine cards are always SO hard for me to do. This one is great, and so perfect for Dads and I especially like the copper metallic look! Have a great weekend!

    • Thanks Scarlett. I agree, masculine cards are definitely tougher to do. I usually start with 1 piece I really like and go from there. I’m never sure how it will turn out but it’s always fun venturing into the unknown. Have a wonderful weekend too! ~Sophia

  2. Hey Sophia, very nice card! I love the colors and the copper is great with the embossing. I have only made two masculine cards so far and I find them a challenge but when they’re complete, I like how they turned out because they’re different from what I usually make. I will have to give a tri-fold card a try too because I haven’t made one yet. Thanks for the details on the card! Have a great weekend! ~Vanessa

    • Thanks Vanessa. I love the embossing with the copper too. I tried a new technique with the copper and ran it through the Cuttlebug with the heart embossing folder. Next I colored in a handful of hearts with Gold and Silver DecoColor Paint Markers. This made the hearts really pop. Thanks for looking and have a wonderful weekend!!! ~Sophia
