Fabulous Dad Card

By: Diane Long from Diane's Studio

This is such a creative card to make for dad. If you're looking for a fabulous homemade card for Father's day then this is the greatest card for you. In just a few steps it can be ready for a lovely message inside.


  • Various sized alphabet stamps
  • Clear pigment ink (Ranger clear embossing ink or VersaMark)
  • Sheet of metal (available in craft stores and online)
  • Patterned and plain papers.
  • Pop dots, double sided tape
  • Ranger Distress embossing powder in Vintage Photo
  • Hole punch, ½ inch circle punch
  • Twine
  • Sticker of a ruler
  • sandpaper


  1. Cut a generous sized piece of metal (allowing enough room depending on the size of your stamps)
  2. Sand the metal with sandpaper in random motions to remove some shine. Wipe off dust.
  3. Stamp ur a gr8 dad on the metal with clear ink, heat emboss with embossing powder.
  4. Optional--you can rub across the embossed letters with your hand (when cool) this will slightly smudge the lettering if you want that look.
  5. Trim the metal to the size you want.
  6. Punch 2 holes at the top corners of metal sign, thread twine through, knot..
  7. Mount metal sign onto a card body that you have layered smaller pieces of patterned and solid papers on to.
  8. Punch ½ in circle out of metal, draw a line down the center to make it look like a screw.
  9. slide the edges on top of the ink pad, emboss with distressed ink to give the look of a rusty nail. attach with a pop dot to “hang” the sign.
  10. Add ruler embellishment (you could also use hammer, baseball glove, fishing pole etc)
