#1 Dad Shirt Handmade Greeting Card

#1 Dad Shirt Card

Hi, crafty friends! Father’s Day is around the corner and I have a great card for you today. I used cardstock from the Royaltone Collection because it has texture and looks like linen. I hope you like it. Let’s get started.



  • Cardstock Warehouse Cardstock Papers
    • Regal White Royaltone 100lb
    • Pewter Gray Royaltone 100lb
    • Blu Sirio Color 80lb
    • Silver Mirror
    • Paper Bag Kraft 100lb
    • Bright White Colorplan 100lb
  • Dies: You can use a metal shirt die, or you can use any of the shirts from THIS Cricut Project. You can also search your machine's software for "shirt" and choose one you like.
  • Alphabet Die
  • Inks
  • Embossing Folder- I'm using a woodgrain one
  • Die-Cutting Machine
  • Misti Stamp Platform
  • White gel pen
  • Foam tape

I started by die cutting all of the pieces for the shirt. The shirt is die-cut from Regal White and Pewter Grey, the “DAD” is from Sirio Blu, and the hanger is from Paper Bag and Silver Mirror.

The assembled shirt is so cute and I love the hanger. You can see the wood grain from the die. I die cut the “DAD” using alphabet dies and used liquid glue to adhere the images.

I put the shirt into the Misti stamping tool and stamped the images using Mandarine and Grapefruit inks. For the “#1” I used both ink pads to give it a gradient look.

Now, I wanted to add more details to the shirt, so I used a white gel pen and added some dash lines to the pocket, sleeves, “DAD,” and collar.

I used the Tree Bark embossing folder with the Sirio Blu cardstock and ran that through my die-cutting machine. This will give a great look for the background. You can use any embossing folder that you have on hand.

Now the card is finished. I adhered the embossed background to a Bright White A2 card base, then added the shirt with foam tape to give it dimension. I love how this turned out!
