Polaroid Father's Day Card (Free Silhouette Studio Cut File)

I can't believe it but I'm already getting requests for Father's Day. I guess it is less than a month away already!  My husband hates spending money on cards so we rarely buy cards for each other, but that's not stopping me from making cards!

I designed this card based on a similar Father's Day DAD card I found on pinterest.  I put my own twist on it by adding the Polaroids and I think that really 'makes' it!   Once I had an idea I got to work creating the cut file (which you can download at the end of the post).  I think it turned out really cute and it's totally customizable.

Just a few tips about this design and putting it all together...

I have the Portrait and in order to make the long D D pieces fit - which is actually the cover and the back page (the perforated line is the fold) - I had to cut on a diagonal.  If you have the CAMEO and keep the sizing the same, you should be fine to cut straight.

I used my DIY sketch pen to write the sentiment on the first polaroid.  If you'd like to change the sentiment just ungroup and delete what's there. I filled in the font by using the internal offset method which you can learn how to do here.  It's so small only a few insets were needed.

To get the pictures sized correctly, I saved them on my desktop.  (NOTE: Before you bring them into Studio perform any cropping and filters in your favorite photo editor - I use Picmonkey.  Then you can save and drag them into Silhouette Studio.) I was then able to line them up with the polaroid cut design to size them perfectly.

When I was done sizing, I sent them to the printer straight from Studio like you would for a print and cut.  They're easy enough to cut out that if you forget to add reg marks (guilty!) you can just cut them out yourself.   If you do want to turn the photos into Print and Cut files, click here to learn how to turn any jpeg into a print and cut.

Once you have everything cut, fold on the perforated lines. The tab on the A is where you'll attach it to the inside of the Ds to make the middle page.  I used hot glue for this part to make sure it wasn't going anywhere.

Finally, when you're putting it all order to hide the polaroids on the second and third pages so they don't peek out through the A and D, position them towards the left/center of the book.

The rest is pretty self explanatory, I think, but if you do have questions leave them in the comments and I'll be sure to follow up.
