I love designing simple printable cards. I think they are more sentimental than store-bought. And they can be tailored to say exactly what you want them to. Now I really wish I could claim the creative brainpower behind this card idea, but I was inspired by a handmade card that 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 one for my Father in Law. I don’t have a step-by-step tutorial, but here is the gist.
Simply go to Google and type in “World’s Best Dad” and capture the screen and paste it into the design software that is set up as 8.5×11. 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 definitely sure to impress! I know my Father in Law really appreciated this card and all of the details that I added to it. It took him a minute to realize that it literally was all about him! I hope you’re inspired by this idea and would love to see your Google Father’s Day Cards!
