Desperate for a Father’s Day card? Quick one….

1 Comment

I just thought I would add a super quick Father’s day card.  In 5 minutes you can have this ready for an envelope!

Simple to make – score an A4 or US letter sheet of black cardstock in half.  Score vertical lines all over the half that will form the front of the card – or not.  Leaving it plain is slightly less interesting but still works.

Print the file – I did it on textured paper, but it would look fine on smooth card if that is all you have.

Cut out one of the 4 x 6 toppers. There is one portrait and one landscape, although the landscape version COULD be cut down so it fits a portrait style card.

Add a leftover strip of blue cardstock if you want, just to add a dash of colour.  You can tart it up further if you want, with a punched strip or patterned paper, but that all depends on how last-minute this project really is LOL!

I’ve also added a PDF of  three of the yellow printables, scootched to the top of the page.  That way, when you print it on nice cardstock you should have enough to cut off the blank bottom and fold it to create a card!  It will vary in size, depending on if you are using A4 or US letter paper, so may not fit a standard envelope perfectly but it will be close enough, I think.

Same thing – there is room to trim the toppers slightly, if you want to, and I just added a strip of card cut with pinking shears for some added interest.

Now, I am well aware that these are not going to win any prizes for excellent card design LOL!  But I figure if you’ve left it till the last minute to make a card ON THE DAY that is not going to be an issue.  {wink} But again, you can tart these up in lots of ways with embellishments, ribbon, whatever.  I think the Best Dad card would be adorable with the addition of a few punched circles from photos of the kids – add them to the card as if the silhouette figure is juggling them!  I think you could fit maybe up to four of them if need be.

And of course you can go back to yesterdays post and print the PDF of the B&W 3×4 cards and use them as I’ve used the yellow ones here.
