Father's Day Grill Card

My husband bought a Pit Boss smoker a couple years ago, and he loves it! He smokes just about everything on it: ribs, pork shoulder roast, chuck roast, steaks, chicken, ham, and even vegetables like asparagus, sweet corn, and brussels sprouts. My youngest daughter told him that men over 50 have to choose one of the following hobbies: smoking meats or the Civil War 😂. I guess I'm grateful my husband went with smoking meats because he's saved me a lot of time in the kitchen! Anyway, when I saw this darling grill box card from Lori Whitlock, I had to make it for DH for Father's Day! It didn't come with any sentiments, so I created a print and cut of "Happy Father's Day" for the front of the card and then purchased the "I'd smoke that" sentiment from the Silhouette Design Store and did a print and cut of that for the back of the card after sizing it up to fit the back of this card. It was pretty easy to assemble, and I think my husband will love it.
