How to Choose a Theme for Your Father's Day Card
Choosing a theme for a Father’s Day card is easy. All you have to do is ask yourself what your dad would like. Does your dad like to golf? Fish? Hunt? Is he handy with tools? Does he have a favorite television show or movie? How about a favorite song -- seeing that nowadays you can usually find a greeting card that will play just about every #1 hit in history.
You see, choosing a theme isn’t the hard part when selecting a Father’s Day card. Finding the right card is the hard part. Finding a card for Mother’s Day on the other hand -- well that’s easy! But for whatever reason, selecting a card for your dad -- well not so much.
So you have a few options. You can browse the aisles of Father’s Day cards until you find something “close” to what you’re looking for. You know, a card that’s not overly “mushy” but not completely insulting. Or, you can make your own.
Believe it or not, making a handmade Father’s Day card isn’t as hard as you’d think. All you need is to buy a plain white greeting card (or make one yourself using cardstock) and with just a few supplies and a stamp or two, you can create a customized one-of-a-kind Father’s Day card that will really impress him. Not a stamper? That’s okay. For less than the amount of money it will cost you to buy a standard greeting card, you can purchase a pre-packaged embellishment set made especially for handmade cards at your local craft supply store. And the best part of these embellishment sets is that they come in so many different themes and include a foam tape backing that makes it easy to mount to your card. And rather than the overly “mushy” or cliched jokes on the inside of the card, with a handmade card, you can write just a few “real” words about your dad inside.
No matter what you choose, if it comes from you, your father is sure to love it!
