iDad-Happy Father's Day

My hubby is into techi stuff so when I saw this idea for a Father's Day card I couldn't pass it up!!!

I got this idea from She Knows.  Check out the She Knows Website for detailed instructions and templates!!!  The actual card is made from an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of black paper (it is kind of hard to tell with my black background.  I found my images by searching the internet using google and typing in the icon I wanted (i.e. calendar app image, or contacts app image).  I then sized and arranged them in my Silhouette software.
I cut around each image with an exacto knife to create the flap.  You can probably tell that I didn't have the steadiest hand (my time away from kids was up and I could hear them upstairs fighting...kinda threw my concentration off...or least that is what I am blaming it on ;).  I then had each of the kids take a row of icons and write their dad a special message under each of the icon flaps.  Hope this gives you some ideas!!!

I have entered this project in the My Craft Spot Monday Challenge!
