Father’s Day Card 2012

It was Fathers Day only a couple of weeks ago and I hope you all got a chance to spend some time with your dad! Of course a special day for my dad means a special card for him too!

So this card has a bit of a story to it. Back when I was in high school, my dad would always drive me and my sister in the mornings and drop us off. Because I would often be ready to go yet my dad would still be upstairs, I used to yell up to him ‘Come on Dad!’ to let him know we were ready to go. I ended up doing the same thing every morning and my dad started calling me the ‘Call-on-dad bird’. So this was the inspiration for my Fathers day card!

Below are some work in progress shots as well as another Making of video at the end of the post. Enjoy!
