For my dad:
- white card stock base
- photocopy of my dad from his WWII days in the Army Air Corps (pre-
cursor of the Air Force). He was not a pilot; he repaired radio
equipment. He was stationed in several places, including the South
Pacific and Japan (after the atomic bombs were dropped).
- photo corners for mounting the photocopy onto the card
- blank bingo markers stamped to spell out "dad"
- red art paper scrap cut into a heart shape
This card came together pretty quickly, but I liked how it turned out!
My husband's card took longer to make.
I recently came across the Ben Franklin picture I'd cut out and saved some time ago(don't recall the source). I decided to use it for my husband's card since he's been avidly following the US Open tournament. No, he's not a golfer, but we used to live about 1 1/2 miles from the site of this year's tournament in suburban Philadelphia.
- white card stock
- cutout of Ben Franklin
- copies of "conversation balloon"; source was a vintage pamphlet
advertising a book about the artist Jean Arp. The pamphlet was
free and I picked it up specifically because I knew I could use
the balloon-like shape for a "conversation balloon".
- printed copies of three Ben Franklin quotes. As I couldn't find
any quotes that pertained to fathers, I chose ones that I
thought my husband would find amusing.
- "What Does Ben Franklin Say?", "Or, How About" and "Happy Father's
Day!" were printed out.
My husband loved the card; he found the quotes very amusing!
