DIY Tardis Greeting Card is Back! {Includes free printables}

I made this card a few years ago and absolutely loved the way it came out. I also shared it on a blog I had a while back, but haven’t shared it again since I closed that blog down.

If you’re a Whovian or know a Whovian that would like this card, then hopefully you’ll love this card as much as I do.

Here’s how my card came out:

You’ll probably notice there are some imperfections that I tried to fix for you on the free printables I have available. Mainly the Police Box sign at the top and the windows that I just drew in myself.

Everything that is blue, I used some blue card stock that I had. Luckily it was pretty close to Tardis Blue ( Pantone 2955C ). And the windows and other white signs were printed on regular white card stock. The light at the top was just drawn and cut using some guesstimation because I really wasn’t sure how to go about it.

Once I had everything cut out, I went around the edges with the Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Black Soot. You can get a similar effect with a regular black ink pad. Just rub along the edges. A black marker would probably even work. I think the only thing is that it won’t blend into the paper the way the Distress Ink does.

Once everything was ready, I just used some double sided tape to tape it to a blank card. That’s also super easy, just get one sheet of white card stock. Cut it in half so you have 2 sheets that are 5.5″ x 8.5″. And fold one of those in half so you are left with a card that is 4.25″ x 5.5″.

Like mine, you’ll probably have the light at the top sticking up past the card.

Now you’re ready to make the card. Have fun!!

Here are the printables on how to make this card.
