Just in case you haven't turned on the TV or been in a store for a month or so, this coming Sunday is Father's Day.
I am blessed with several father figures, and most years I've bought them cards. This year, however, I was inspired to make my own cards when I saw the image of a car on the Cricut Cake Holiday Cakes cartridge. This car reminds me a lot of my step-dad's 1964 Plymouth Fury, so I had to make this card for him:

Both the car and license plate are from the Holiday Cake cartridge. And yes, you can use the Cake carts in the regular Cricut to cut paper. But, warning, once you start it is hard to stop. It took me more than 3 hours to make this single card.
And I didn't stop there! I figure since I made one for my step-dad, I'd better make one for my daddy and my father-in-law.
My father-in-law loves Gnomes and I envisioned his card from the moment I saw the new Freshly Picked cartridge. Here it is:

The inside of all three cards are very similar, using the Happy Father's Day title from the Cricut Cake Holiday Cake Cartridge.
