Have you ever wondered how to make a scratch off card – kind of like a scratch off lottery ticket? Well – now you can! I’ve included a free down loadable card for FathersDay and also instructions on how to make scratch off stickers for the card. I came across the idea and instructions for scratch off stickers from Artmind. Repost : )
Silver craft paint – I purchased cheap .59 paint at Michaels Crafts
Dish washing liquid
Clear Contact paper or clear laminating sheet
Fathers Day Card – Download
Mix silver acrylic paint with dish washing liquid – 2 parts paint to 1 part liquid.
I added a drop of black paint to help darken the silver. Paint the clear laminating sheet (or whichever clear sticky paper) with your paint mixture – you might need to paint two coats. Let completely dry.
This is an easy project that your kids will enjoy making! Of course, you could always give the card as is… but dad will have tons of fun scratching off his fathers day card to reveal the terms of endearment. The possibilities are endless with what you can do with these scratch off stickers!

I experimented with several types of clear sticky backed plastics i.e. contact paper, laminating sheet, mailing label and packaging tape. They all worked except the mailing label – that surface was not shiny and the paint wouldn’t scratch off. The packaging tape was easy to use if that’s all you have on hand. To make the tape easier to paint, I taped packaging tape (2 inch wide) onto wax paper and painted the silver paint mixture onto the tape. I had a laminating sheet on hand so that’s what I ended up using. Print the card on card stock.
