Easy DIY Father’s Day Card with Minimal Supplies

Happy Friday, all! This Sunday is Father’s Day here in the United States so I thought I would make another minimal supplies card. I made one for last year too. I stayed with inexpensive watercolor paints and created rows of hearts.

To create the perfectly spaced hearts, I used a piece of paper for a template. I folded the paper and cut hearts out of it. Be sure to watch the video below to see how it was done.

After penciling in the hearts onto the watercolor paper, I watercolored around the shapes. Then I wrote “Happy Dad’s Day” over the hearts in a black pen. Super simple and easy. :)

You could modify this card design to many other occasions. I think it would be fun to have rows of balloons and have it say “Happy B-Day!”

    That was fun, Kristina! Looks easy enough to use for different occasions. I think I’ll try using a paper punch to make the shapes and see how it works.

    Kristina this is a gorgeous yet simple card! Love your handwriting so much girl! Really love how you did the lettering and you make it so simple, yet when I try… I fail! Go figure! Thank you for inspiring me and love how you did the template of hearts! Going to bookmark this video so I can try it!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Who says you have to have a bunch of money to make a cute card for your Dad? I know anyone’s father would love to get this card. Of course the lettering would be tragic if I did it, but the rest I know I could do! I love it.
