Superhero Father's Day Card

Hi, Bloggers! Hope you all had a nice weekend. Father's Day Sunday was pretty low-key because it was a work day for my boyfriend. We did have pancakes from the Koa Pancake House at his request, though. He is off Tuesday, so we are going to have a nice family dinner in town. Looking forward to it! For his gift, I surprised him with a tabletop gas grill that he wanted. I also made a Superhero Father's Day card for him.

My boyfriend likes Batman, but I didn't have a Batman SVG or the Batman cartridge. I decided to do things a little "old school" and downloaded a superhero image that I thought was perfect for the card. It's an image of the Batman and Superman logos merged together. I typed and printed the wording on the front which says "Daddy, you may not be Superman or Batman".

The inside of the card continues with "But you're still MY HERO". I included a picture of my boyfriend with our daughter printed on cardstock. I wish I had printed it on photo paper, but I didn't have time to go hunting through my boxes for some. =(

I used a white gel pen on the "MY HERO" diecut and also added some sheer ribbon to the front of the card with some red ribbon with stars on it that I had been dying to use. I'm always my own worst critic, so I always feel that there's room for improvement. But overall, I was satisifed with how the card came out. If you're interested in the "MY HERO" SVG file, here is where I got it from: (sorry, links aren't working properly here right now). I used MTC and my Cricut to cut the image. Thanks for visiting. Have a happy Monday!
