Best daddy ever papercut for Father’s Day!

Given my new obsession with paper cutting it is not surprising that it featured heavily in this years Father’s Day cards!

I started with this one for The hubby from the princess!

It started like this…

I traced this (of a sort) and turned it into a template…

Then I drew the reverse of the template so I could cut from the back…

And photocopied it onto a sheet of Whisper White using draft print settings on the printer. Then I started cutting…

In less than an hour I had this!

I thought Real Red and Basic Grey were a good colour combo for the hubby and so here it is the final paper cut and mount ready to stick on the front of a card! Hurrah!

Will share other Father’s Day cards in a day or so… I’m busy today with the hubby, my dad and my father in law. First time we have managed all the dad’s in one day for quite some time!

Happy crafting!
