How to Jazz Up Your Homemade Father's Card with Embellishments

Rather than buy ready made cards for your father, this celebratory day provides the ideal opportunity to design your own card or use a card design template. You can personalise it with all sorts of embellishments relevant to your loved one.  This is the time to be adventurous and even quirky, adding different levels of detail as you feel inspired.  For some interesting ideas to get you started, you might like to check out other people’s handcrafted father’s day cards.
