Father’s Day outline cards by the Bearded Housewife

We love these super easy but adorable insert cards from crafty dad Nick at the Bearded Housewife.

Layered Cardstock Dad SVG by Extraordinary Chaos

We like this cool cutout by Sarah at Extraordinary Chaos, which isn’t a card but can be used in many different ways. You can choose either ‘DAD’ or ‘DADDY’ versions of the SVG and the cardstock lettering can be used as an embellishment for a card or a cake topper. You could also cut the design out of vinyl and use it on a mug, or create an HTV version for a shirt.
