Thank heavens for my Cricut as it saved the day with simply the press of a button. It made my FIL's card a fairly quick make.
I cut out the letters by using the "centre point" button so that I could fit the letters to fit exactly across the middle of my card, discarding the actual letters but keeping the remnants to replace later.
I then used a pencil to mark where the spaces left by the letters were and glued off cuts and washi tape over the area. The front was then placed using foam pads also adding foam pads to the remnants before fitting the back into their places. This was easily done by putting the cut letter back into their space, replacing the remnants and then removing the cut letters again. It sounds more complicated than it actually was, honest :).
I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
KBD1, Father's day,
CB171, Fathers day,
CYP166, Father's day,
CC, Father's day,
FCC164, Fathers day,
MIM144b, Anything goes.
Thanks for stopping by,
