Great Father's Day Cards

Great Father's Day Cards

As we are on our way towards Father’s Day in the UK in June, I thought this was a good opportunity to showcase some home made cards seen out and about on the web.  I hope you think these set the right tone for Father’s Day and inspire you to have a go yourself.

1. Straight to the point

There are times when I really approve of simple, straightforwardly designed cards that aren’t embellished to the hilt.  Don’t get me wrong – these can be beautifully executed and stunning – it’s just that there are times I’m happy with the “less is more” approach.  I hope you’ll agree that this card is one of those.

Great idea for any occasion. Cut out letters on Cricut or buy them:

2. Vertical alignment

This card has the text aligned vertically rather than horizontally as in the previous example and has ramped up the design stakes.  It still gives a clean, neat and tidy result and by using the same colour for the letters as for the main background, the eye is drawn straight to them.  So there’s no doubt who the card is for.

3. Card and Gift Combo

This next “card” is just brilliant!  It uses very little in terms of crafting skills but, importantly, it instantly solves the problem of finding a Father’s Day gift for Dad.  I can think of people I could adapt this for as a birthday card for example – anyone who’s a bit of a chocoholic will love this!

4. Finger Painting!

Here’s a card that’s a great project for involving the kids.  Who doesn’t love a spot of finger painting after all?

5. Old Fashioned Vibe

I think this one has a bit of an old fashioned vibe to it.  Probably something to do with the bowler hat. This would be a great card for an older chap maybe or one with a stylish sense of humour.  Either way, I think it’s pretty darned clever and love the slightly quirky design.
