Happy Father’s Day everyone!! :o) Kylie here and yes, I’m a little quick off the mark, but we wanted to share these Father’s Day goodies with you in time for the big day on Sunday! And anyway, as my very wise Father always says “everyday…is Father’s Day!” …yeah right, dad!! ;o)
Today we have, not one, but TWO piece-a-cake cards for you to DOWNLOAD FREE! Feel free to use just one of the cards or BOTH! …or why not print and/or email as many as you like… for all the special men in your life this Father’s Day. The cards are perfect for dads, brothers, uncles, grandfathers, sons, friends – you name it! I had so much fun designing these two very cute and very different cards with SP. I hope that you enjoy using them just as much …and that the special person you give it to enjoys receiving it!
CLICK HERE for the download (or you can simply click on the image above)! The download includes both cards in PNG format in both 4×6 and 5×7 sizes. We’ve also included a coordinating background paper in both 4×6 and 5×7, in the event you wish to make a double-sided card (especially great if you wish to add a letter, quote, drawing, scripture or poem)!
Of course…these are high resolution and meant to be customized (add your own photos and text) and printed! However, they are also wonderful for emailing! The recipient will probably appreciate it if you resize first though (a great size is about 800 pixels wide at 72dpi for email)!
You can see various text, like… ‘Happy Father’s Day’, ‘Grandpa’, ‘kisses & hugs’, ‘for dad’ …plus my own photos, on the examples above. Well, that’s my way of personalizing the cards for the blog preview. Please know that we did NOT include the text on the cards in the download. That way – you can use them for any occasion you wish (and, you can also customize in any language)! While the cards are perfect for Father’s Day – they can work for just about any occasion!
If you need help figuring out how to add your photos and text (remember, you will need some kind of graphics program to work with these files) – please visit our TUTORIALS page for help! We have tutorials (both video and screenshot versions) for our piece-a-cake pages/albums for both Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. So, click around on the tutorials page and you should find all the answers you are looking for :o) But, the good news is that it is SUPER SIMPLE!
Before I sign off, I wanted to let you know that for the two cards, we worked with the following Shabby Shoppe products: Barefoot, Happy Trails, Goose bumps, Wonderful, Modish Boy, Twirl and other bits and pieces from various Shabby Shoppe products, including the little car digital stickers from the Things that Go pack. For my own card examples I used the goose bumps alpha for the ‘for dad’ title. Other font credits include ld elegance, ld buttercream and ck becky.
Enjoy the cards… and enjoy your special weekend!! SP will be back tomorrow (or possibly Saturday, at the latest!) to announce a couple of ‘little’, but, NEW Shoppe products! YAY! :o)
