I love designing simple printable cards. I think that they are more sentimental than store-bought cards. And they can be tailored to say exactly what you want them to. Now I wish I could claim the creative brainpower behind this Google card idea, but I was inspired by a child’s handcrafted card! This Google Father’s Day Card is simple to make, as long as you know how to screen grab and have some sort of design software to work with – Canva, Publisher, or the like.

DIY Card for Dad

I made this Google Father’s Day Card for my father-in-law. I don’t have a step-by-step tutorial, but here is the gist:

Visit Google.com and type in “World’s Best Dad”.

Capture the screen by taking a screenshot (CTRL-ALT-PRT SCREEN on Windows) and paste it into your design software that is set up as 8.5 x 11.

You’ll want to resize and crop the screengrab to 5.5 x 8.5 and place it on the bottom half of the artboard.

Add a second page to the document.

After performing the Google search, do another screengrab. Past the search results onto the second page, resize to 5.5 x 8.5, and place it on the bottom half of the artboard.

Now replace the information on the search results with your dad’s name and info – if you’re unable to use an eraser tool, simply use a white box to cover the information and then add a text box and type over it. I even added a photo of my father-in-law in the images section!

Fun, sweet, and sure to impress! I know my father-in-law appreciated this card and all of the details that I added to it. It took him a minute to realize that it was all about him! I hope you’re inspired by this idea and would love to see your Google Father’s Day Cards!
