Father’s Day Card and Shirt

Don’t wait until the last minute to make something for Dad for Father’s Day.  It is only a few weeks away.  I want to show you a shirt and card I made using a fun tool font I found.

Shirt

I found this adorable font at Caty Catherine called Tool Letters.  Click HERE to go to the site and purchase it for yourself. There is also another one called Fishing Lure Letters that you can get HERE.  If you have never purchased a SVG file, once you download it, just right click on the downloaded folder and unzip the folder and you will see sub-folders saved in different formats.  Make sure to upload the svg file formats to Design Space.

Once you upload the to Design Space you are ready to start creating your project.  I started off with just the word DAD, but then I tried a few other variations.

Then I decided to add the children’s names underneath.  I felt like it needed something between the names, so I added a nut.

The nuts were pretty easy to make.  I did them using basic shapes.  Let me show you how I did it.

I inserted a hexagon and a circle from the shapes button in Cricut Design Space

Then I selected both of them and used the align tool to move them so that they were perfectly centered over each other.

Then, while I still had the hexagon and the circle selected I hit the slice button to remove the circle from the center of the hexagon, which made it look like this . . .

Then I decided to make a matching card.  Here is what it looked like in Design Space

And here is the actual card.  For the word DAD I used black vinyl since I did not want to have to move and line up all of those little pieces.  Since it was vinyl I was able to use transfer paper to move the image onto the card.

I hope this project inspired you to make something amazing for the man in your life.  If you need the font file, make sure to head over to Caty’s site by clicking HERE.
