Materials for creating your Father's Day Rocket Card
Steps in Creating your own Father's Day Rocket Card
Step 1 Use the white cardstock as the base of your card. Then, attach a black colored paper on top of it. Make the black colored paper a little smaller than the white cardstock to create a small white margin on all sides.
Step 2 Now, let’s make a cool space background! Dip the watercolor brush into white acrylic paint. Then, place it a few inches on top of the blank black card. Carefully tap the brush using your other hand, or flick it with your fingers. The result will be white paint spots, similar to stars in outer space! How cool! Repeat this step a few more times to evenly scatter more white spots.
Step 3 Next, cut the empty toilet paper core vertically in half. Paint the outer part with blue acrylic paint or whatever color you want your rocket to be. Let it dry for a few minutes, then attach it to the middle of the card using an all-purpose adhesive.
Step 4 Cut several pieces of red, yellow, and orange yarns to at least 3 inches long each. Arrange them alternately at the end of the rocket to make it look like fire and ignition! Then, cut out two right triangles and a circle on colored paper to decorate the rocket. Paste the triangles on each side and the circle in the upper middle part of the rocket.

Step 5 Use a silver or gray marker to make a circle inside the circle! Now your rocket has a window! You can also use foil if you do not have a silver marker. Then, use a black marker to draw small black dots around the rocket's window.
Step 6 Let's add the moon and other planets! Cut out circles on colored paper and draw curved lines on them using colored markers. You can use different colors for each planet! Then, cut out a crescent shape for the moon. Use glue to attach them to the card.
Step 7 Cut out a rectangle from cardstock or white paper. Measure it to be big enough to fit inside the rocket. Then, attach a rectangle on top of it. Now, write your message on the white rectangle. You can say, “Daddy, I love you to the moon and back!” or “Happy Father’s Day, Daddy! Have a blast!”. You can also come up with your own space-themed message! Place it inside the rocket, waiting to launch your message to your dad!
Step 8 Write the word DAD on the upper right corner of the card using shiny silver and gold markers. Now your Father's Day Rocket Card is complete! Blast off!
This Father’s Day card is really cute, unique, and awesome! You can gift it to anyone who loves space-themed stuff too! Just replace the message and the name on the last step, and you have an out-of-this-world gift ready! Hope you had fun crafting with us today!
