With Father’s day right around the corner, I decided to make my dad a card this year. Considering the amount of “zombie” stories in the news, I feel it’s only necessary I provide the old man with a Zombie Apocalypse survival kit! (Really just a gift card to Harbor Freight).
For the outside of this card, I wanted to imitate one of those MRE type sardine cans. I laminated a piece of chipboard with some silver decal vinyl. Then, I cut the dad in gasmask / tie logo out of black wall vinyl, since it has a nice matte finish. This happens to match the green WorldWin cardstock, nicely. Next, I laminated some white WorldWin cardstock with the same silver vinyl I used on the chipboard. This gave the outside a neat metallic appearance.
On the inside, I used a regular pen in my KNK Zing to write a little note. I’ll attach the giftcard below this 🙂
I designed my card in KNK Studio. I created the gas mask, collar and can opener using Node editing. The font for “DAD” is called Ideal_ie (comes with KNK Studio). I then copied and pasted my artwork over to Make The Cut and cut all my pieces out on the KNK Zing.
