In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a sucker for Dr. Who crafts. Actually, I’m a sucker for nerdy crafts in general. If it’s fun, cool, and nerdy then I’m in! With Valentine’s Day reminders all over the place you can’t help but think about greeting cards.

Come on, they’re in your face everywhere you look. That has put my nerdy brain into overdrive with a million new card ideas (including a Buffy the Vampire Slayer card that I’m beyond excited about and this Hello Sweetie card). For now, find out how to make this awesome Cooler Than Bowties card!

Cooler Than Bowties Card Materials

I have altered these sketches with a photo editor to darken the pencil lines so you can see what my sketches looked like. My actual sketches were in pencil so that I could erase and/or fix any mistakes.

Step 1

Sketch an outline of a fez on your cardstock that is the lighter shade of red. Sketch an outline of a bowtie on the darker red cardstock.

Step 2

Cut out your sketches. Cut out a small square of the lighter red and glue is to the center of the bowtie. Trim any edges necessary.

Step 3

Trace all of these lines with your black marker. Add 2 lines on either side of the center of the bowtie. See the picture for reference.

 

Step 4

Place a red brad in the center of the “top” of the fez. Glue your fez and bowtie to the front of the card as pictured below.

Step 8

Glue your rectangle to the inside of your card. I chose to place mine at the angle but you don’t have to. Centering it looks great as well.

This specific card is being used as a Valentine but it totally works for birthdays, graduations, and more. Frankly, do you really need a reason to let your friends and family know how cool they are? I don’t think so. However, this seriously comes together so quickly you can totally whip it up in time for Valentine’s Day!
