Free Downloadable Father's Day Card

I recently discovered the beautiful blog The House That Lars Built while trolling through Twitter one night. All of Brittany Jepsen's photos are gorgeous and inspiring, but it was her post offering readers three free Father's Day cards that really spurred me into action. I thought this was such a great and generous concept, I decided to give it a go myself. I loved this card from One Charming Party, and used it as my inspiration. I designed the card using Picmonkey.com. I've been playing around with their photo editing tools a lot lately (the blog header and social media buttons in the sidebar are products of this experimentation). Seriously, guys, this site is awesome--it's free, there's no software to download, and you can do some very cool stuff.

To open the card, follow this link to the Google Doc I've created. Open, print onto card stock, cut, fold, and give to the fathers in your life! The finished size is about 4.5" square (I love square cards!). Later this week I'll post a tutorial about making envelopes. Even if you don't use this download, I hope you're inspired to do some creating of your own. There are so many user-friendly photo editing programs out there--perfect for absolute beginners or seasoned veterans. Be creative and enjoy!

PS: I've offered this card for free to anyone who wants to download it for personal use. I'm not naive about what happens to information on the internet, so I'll just say pretty please with sugar on top, don't use this design for commercial purposes :)
