Birthday Card for Dad using Tools of the Trade SVG Cutting File



To make the card:

  1. Cut an 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock in half horizonally to end up with two pieces 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″. Score and fold one piece in half along the dotted line shown in the diagram to create a card base 5 1/2″ wide by 4 1/2″ tall.
  2. Cut three more cardstock pieces in alternating colors according to the dimensions below:
    • 4″ x 5 1/4″
    • 3″ x 4 1/4″
    • 2 7/8″ x 4 1/8″
  3. If you have an embossing machine (I used my Texture Boutique), emboss the smallest of the three pieces.
  4. Center and layer the pieces in order of size, adhere them together and adhere all three pieces to the card base.
  5. Size the tools in your cutting software so they will fit on the card as shown. On my card, the hammer is approximately 1 1/2″ tall and the rest of the tools are sized proportionately. Cut all the tool pieces out and layer them together to form the individual tools.
  6. Arrange the tools on the card front as desired and adhere.
  7. Size the Dad cutting file to approximately 3″ wide in your cutting software. Cut out both pieces. Adhere the word to the shadow outline, then adhere both to the card front.

That’s all there is to it! Such a simple card to make, but it makes a big impression!

Great Card for a Handyman

My dad’s birthday is coming up in a few days. This man has the most amazingly well organized wall of tools in his garage that you could ever imagine, so when I sat down to create a birthday card for him, a “wall of tools” seemed like the perfect theme.

The card is 5 1/2″ wide by 4 1/4″ tall. To cut the tools, I used the Tools of the Trade SVG cutting file available in the 99 Cent Store (shown below). The word Dad was handwritten on my graphics tablet and converted to a cutting file.
