Dorthy’s Notes: *I used Glasses, Staches & Ties paper pack by the Paper Studio (This is great for manly stuff!) This card has been “floating” around for lots of years. Kudos to whoever created it!!! **The Score Pal makes folding and creasing easy, but if you can’t beg borrow or steal one then you can do it the old fashioned way!

    That is super cute Carrie! Pinning!

  2. Cards in the store these days are so expensive. What a great idea to make your own.
    Great step by step instructions too!

    This is beyond cute! It is the perfect Father’s Day card. I am going to show it to my youngest. I know she would love to make it. She had a ball making your flip flops.

    I love this idea. My daughters class made something similar this year but I couldn’t figure out how they created it… thanks for the detailed instructions, we will be trying this next year. Such a sweet card.
