We (me and my mum) designed this card a while back when we were selling on Etsy and finding ways that we could be creative together, it turns out that this card mas mighty popular and was featured as number 1 card on BUZZFEED! We had so many orders to complete it was crazy! Due to the handmade business getting too big for our boots we decided to use our creative powers instead in the world of blogging, much easier than going to the post office everyday! No cape required!

Step 1: 

Print the FREE TEMPLATE and cut out the super dad using a craft knife, draw around the template on the yellow card and then the red card, we cut two of each so we can make a badge too.

Step 2:

Measure the blue card against your folded card, we used an A5 card, the thicker the better as it makes the card sturdy and also gives it a more professionally made feel. Cut to fit and then glue on to the front of the card.

Step 3:

Using sticky foam pads, create a raised section with the yellow paper cut card and stick in the middle of the card.

I think it looks pretty awesome!. We used a brown envelope to go with it so Dad was not expecting such a powerful colourful card inside. Though a bright red or yellow envelope would look amazing with this.

We also made a badge by attaching a safety pin to the back of the card with some tape, alternatively you could do that and attach the safety pin to the card creating a card with a removable badge.
