Yesterday I traded a day at the gym for some creative time in my studio. I was on a mission to make 2 cards-one for a friend who is graduating from college and the other for Father's Day. I will share the graduation card with you over the weekend, but with Father's Day just two days away, I had to share the card I made today! Why? Because I am giving it to you for free so you can make one, too!
If you recall from my last post, I mentioned when I design, I like to create things that fill a void. What I mean by that is if I see that there is something in "everyday life" that doesn't have a product in "digital-design-scrapbook-community" to represent it, I like to create something for it! And that is what I did with the Father's Day card I created for my husband.
While looking at handmade Father's Day card examples online, I noticed that they were made with the intention to be given to our dads. Which, of course, is totally fine! But what about making a card for our husbands-the father to our children? I saw a void and decided to fill it.
The card is super simple to make. Just download the .jpg file by clicking the link below, print, cut and assemble! The file will fit on an 8.5x11 sheet of paper (it actually measures 8.5x5.5). I printed mine out on Staples Brand Double-Sided Matte Photo Paper. It is my favorite paper to print projects such as this on! Enjoy!
I included a mustache "seal" for the envelope!
