Cricketer Fathers Day Card

My Dad is a MASSIVE fan of cricket. He isn’t too happy with the world at the moment, for obvious reasons.

My aim for Father’s Day was to a) cheer him up b) give him a card that summed up his love for cricket in a simple and effective way. I also needed a card that easily fitted into the postage service as well!

The card I decided to make for him was based on a really simple FREE cricket Digistamp from Sandy Goble’s Printable Heavan Blog. There are three to choose from here, and the bowler seemed to work for my Dad best, as that’s what he once was…there are others to suit your Dad’s tastes though.

I then used the “Best Wishes” from a collection of greetings within the Fathers Day sets from the Papercraft Inspirations magazine, and a lovely cricket ball I found on t’interweb, which I then cut out with a scalloped circle X-Cut die on my Sizzix machine…

It doesn’t look that professional, but I think that my Dad with like it! To finish things off, I coloured it in with Letraset Promarkers, and used vintage twine for the stumps – just to raise them up and add that little bit of extra detail.

My kids think its brilliant…not so sure, but I am hoping Dad will like it anyway :-D

What are you making your Dad’s for Father’s Day?
