Father's Day Card with Pop-Up Surprise

I love pop-up cards! Don't you? They are however, somewhat tedious to make so I have a great tip for you. Get a Sizzix pop-up card die and you will soon be making dozens and dozens of! (See last photo for the die I used to make this card.) I also love cards with a sense of humor. This card is of course for my DH who has to be the world's best father. He is a businessman so you'd expect him to be dashing and well-groomed at all times....heeheehee! That's why the front of the card shows a rather elegant man setting off for a long, hard day of work. The inside of the card shows the reality of his life. The little monkey inside represents not one of our boys, but ME!....the monkey at home who's always up to something and is the kid who will never grow up!

The clear stamps used on this card are from Stampendous except for the 'Happy Father's Day' one, which is a Dandelion Design stamp. I don't remember where I got it or who made the coffee cup stamp. The printed papers were from a package by Studio 45 and a thoughtful gift from Regina. Thanks again Regina! It's so hard to find paper designs for men. I'm hoping that one day we'll carry this line in Ben Franklin Crafts.

With Father's Day only a couple of weeks away (June 19th), it's time to start making a special card for that super Dad. It's fun to make a card that coordinates with a gift......shhh! I got him a coffee maker.....don't tell. Wishing a Happy Father's Day to all the great DADS out there in blogland!

Hey, I was thinking about getting that pop-up die next. So sweet of you to make your hubby a card for Father's Day. Tell him I said hello. It's been awhile since I last saw the both of you. Have a great weekend!

What a great card for your DH. I think men don't really look at cards but I think your DH will be checking this one out thoroughly since it's so unique. You're such a sweetheart!
