Tres Jolie Kit Club–Father’s Day Card–June 2023 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, y’all! I hope your June has started out great! Schools have been – or are about to be – released for summer vacation, and Father’s Day is just 10 days away. This week, in honor of Father’s Day, I have a rather quick and easy card for you using the Hunkydory kraft stock found in this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit.

I used a stamp set and inks from my stash, but all of the “parts” for the card came from the kit! I was feeling rather “traditional” when starting this project, and I didn’t want to create a card that was overly complicated or ornate – but I didn’t have much more direction for myself, so I grabbed up the pieces from the kit I thought would work best for how I was feeling, and started playing around.

Be sure to check out my video to see how it came together and watch my confusion!


The first thing I did to create this card is…

…stare at everything and try to get my thoughts together! Which was the hardest part of the project – getting my thoughts in order!

I knew I wanted to use the woodgrain kraft stock, but I wasn’t entirely certain what I actually wanted to do with it or how I wanted to decorate the card front. I also knew I preferred the star print bow for my “traditionally masculine” card, so I popped out the pieces I would need to create the bow, as well as the star print strip, the alpha I needed to spell “Dad” and the medallions to go with everything else “just in case”! I don’t know if I would have used any medallions at all if I hadn’t already inked them by the time I (finally) figured out what I was doing!


I don’t have measurements for you, because I just eyeballed the size I thought looked good for the woodgrain kraft stock. However, I can tell you now after the fact, that the wood grain kraft stock is about 1/4” smaller (length and width), leaving approximately 1/8” of the card base as a border all the way around. I also eyeballed where I wanted the strip of the star print kraft stock, but because I used my cutting mat to keep it straight, I know the bottom edge is 1-1/4” up from the bottom edge of the woodgrain kraft. After I glued the strip into place, I tucked the ends under – cutting a little of the extra length off one end just because (although it worked out in my favor!) then used some “Gathered Twigs” Distress Ink around the perimeter – as well as on the alpha, bow, and medallions.

I used the excess star print strip I had cut off before tucking the ends under to connect my alpha – partly to keep them together because I kept losing one letter or another, and partly just to go with the overall design, since I hadn’t decided where “Dad” would be going yet!

I tried playing around with the alpha, bow, and medallions on the card front, but I just couldn’t get the bow to look right all by itself – and I really wanted to use the bow! In the end, I realized the card front was exactly what I wanted with just the inking, the strip of star print kraft, and the simplicity of “Dad,” so that’s how I left it before moving on to the envelope.


I inked up the envelope with more “Gathered Twigs,” to coordinate with the vintage and “rustic” feel of the woodgrain kraft stock on the card front.

Originally I had adhered the bow and medallions on in a loose cluster formation, but I was still very unhappy with how everything was coming together and I thought maybe adding “Happy Father’s Day” to the envelope would tie everything together better – which is how I came to the decision to use my Tim Holtz “The Inspector” stamp set! I was originally just looking for alpha stamps to use – then I saw the man and the alpha just staring at me!

I used some “Timber Brown” StazOn for my first stamping of “The Inspector,” then added a couple of layers of “Gathered Twigs” Distress Ink on top before moving over to start the process of spelling out “Happy Father’s Day” with the alpha stamp block that also doesn’t have all 26 letters of the alphabet!

I started with the “H” in “Happy,” using my StazOn, but before repositioning the alpha block for the “A,” I used my “Gathered Twigs” to create a lighter background text block – then I continued stamping the rest of the phrase. For the two “P’s,” I used the “R’s” just making sure to keep the extra leg ink-free, and for the “Y’s,” I used upside-down “A’s” and the “I” to create the leg.

I traced over all of the letters in the phrase with my “Vintage Photo” Distress Marker, then I grabbed up a water bottle and sprayed everything down. The StazOn stayed put, and all the Distress Inks activated! After drying the envelope, I attached the bow tie and placed the medallions.

Tres Jolie Kit Club–Father’s Day Coupons & Envelopes!-May 2022 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, y’all!

Since I did Mother’s Day Cards at the beginning of the month, I decided to do some Father’s Day Coupon’s and gift envelopes as my final May project using the May 2022 Cards, Tags, & More Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club. I created a few different designs to use as examples and have some example phrases to use with your coupon book. There are links to free PDFs for the different coupons throughout the blog, and over at CornerScrapsStudio you can get the PDFs, STUDIO3, and PNG files from my Etsy shop. I never “fully” completed a coupon book – the closest is my “Unlimited” tags – because I don’t have a personal use for Father’s Day coupons, and all our kids are old enough to worry about it themselves! (by old enough, I mean they no longer have any age restrictions on any purchases Rolling on the floor laughing)


Check out my video to check out all the different ideas I cover for envelopes and coupons!



First up are my “Vintage Gold” coupons. I designed these coupons to look as though they are on old paper with gold font and trim. These examples are printed on some HP Premium Choice LaserJet Paper; a type of high-resolution paper designed for business documents that need clear, crisp images. You can get the “Vintage Gold” PDF on DropBox (for personal use only, please!) if you would like to print them out. (**NOTE: All PDF files offered throughout this post are not offered, created, or owned by Tres Jolie Kit Club. I am the creator and owner of the files and offer the PDFs for your personal use.)

The envelope for these coupons is a hand-folded sheet of the 6×6 patterned paper. I just eyeballed the center and eyeballed where I wanted the folds. Then for a little decoration on the front, I added a couple of the leftover hearts from my Mother’s Day Cards and one of the Prima flowers.

This next coupon design I have dubbed “Modern,” not for any particular reason, it is just what came to me when I needed some names to distinguish between the different designs! I printed my “Modern” coupons on some blue cardstock using my regular color InkJet printer. I don’t know if it’s just my particular brand of printer or the ink, but I didn’t have a bleeding problem on my prints. However, a few years ago I had a different printer that did like to bleed. A lot. So I came up with something to help keep that from happening! I discovered that if I spray the side I will be printing on with some Krylon Workable Fixatif and let it dry before printing, my bleeding, for the most part, was gone! I was actually able to print on shipping label sticker paper using this method and all of my images and fonts stayed clear! (Just remember to spray in a well-ventilated area!). If you would like to see all the coupons, you can swing by and pick up the “Modern” PDF on DropBox (for personal use only).

I have a couple of different envelope examples for these coupons. One I made to have a tie closure, so I never sealed any of the flaps. I added an eyelet in the bottom flap and attached one of the flair from the kit to the top flap, then ran a piece of twine through the eyelet to tie the envelope closed. The second envelope I made I left open. I folded the top flap back and glued it in place so the coupons would be able to stick out the top.

I made a couple of mini envelopes to hold some Father’s Day Tokens. The tokens have all the same tasks but in an itty bitty size! I thought there were a couple of ways to use the tokens – you could print them out on sticker paper and make a full coordinating sheet to go with so the stickers could be placed as they get used, or you could print them out on regular paper, cut them into squares, staple the stack together if you want, and put them in the envelope (or staple them to the envelope). You can go grab the “Tokens” PDF on DropBox if you’re interested! (For personal use only)

Here is the final style of the full set of coupons I created. For this example, I printed them on some glossy photo paper and decided to make a little booklet. My photo paper doesn’t slide very well, so instead of trying to get them in and out of an envelope, I thought a booklet would work better. A couple ideas of for securing your booklet are to use brads if they are long enough, or some twine/ribbon ran through a couple of holes. Here is the link for the “Square ‘Stamp’ Edge” PDF on DropBox, if you are interested. (For personal use only)


In addition to the “single-use” coupons, I thought making “Unlimited” coupons would be a nice addition. I have some that are sized to fit the tags from this month’s kit – Unlimited Bear Hugs, Game of Catch, and Spending The Day Together – and I turned them into sketches in Silhouette Studio, but you can also print the “Unlimited Tags” PDF on DropBox if you would like (For Personal Use Only). I have a little envelope I made for them with the top flap folded back and glued open, and a hole with an eyelet so the tags can be tied to the envelope, to keep everything together.


My final example is another “Unlimited” coupon in the form of an ATC. Making an ATC allows some personalized artwork to also be part of the gift! For my ATC I cut a piece of the patterned paper to size, added some of the lattice-ish bits I had left from my Mother’s Day Cards, used some of the Finnabair micas from this month’s Mixed Media Kit, popped on some Say-It-In-Crystals and a flower, then printed out my phrase and glued it on.

For the envelope, I made an ATC-sized pocket. It is an expandable pocket I saw a lady make using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board a few (5+) years ago on YouTube. I made myself a little note to tape to my punch board with the measurements, so now I don’t know who I originally saw!

Measurements & (Original) Instructions (6”x6” paper size):

  1. At the 2-1/4” mark, punch & score
  2. Move over to the 3-1/4”, punch & score
  3. Turn
  4. Line up with marker, punch & score
  5. Line up next line marker, punch – NO score (**In my video, I score here, then used my scoreboard to add another scoreline between the two made on the punch board so I had an accordion fold envelope.)
  6. Turn
  7. Repeat 1-5
  8. Using scissors, cut the little sections where your score lines … ummm … overhang … so you can fold your flaps (I hope this made sense!)

This will give you an envelope that is 2-3/4”x3-1/4”. If you’d like some examples for Father’s Day phrases you can get the Father’s Day Phrases PDF on DropBox or just check out this photo for ideas!
