Father's Day Cards Using Fun Fonts

As a card-maker, I find it rather odd and irritating that I have a shortage of sentiment stamps. You know, phrases like "Congrats!" or "Happy Anniversary." The words on the front of the card that tell the receiver what the card is about. It seems like all the cute cards out there in crafting/bloggy land are all made with even cuter sentiment stamps. Yesterday, as I sat down to create my Father's Day cards, I decided to remedy my frustrations by using the unique and FREE downloadable fonts from Kevin and Amanda!

There are over 300 fun and fantastical fonts over there! I actually took the time to download ALL of them. I really just couldn't decide, and you never know when you'll use the others, right? After they were all installed, I used Word to create cute phrases for my cards. Once the layout was the way I wanted, I printed them out on scrap paper to test the font size. After the size and placement were all correct, I printed on cardstock. 

I used a circle cutter and scissors to cut out my words. Now, let's see what I was able to create with them!

Not too fancy, but with some guys, less is more.

So, at the end of the day, I realized that even though I would like to have a huge, wonderful collection of sentiment stamps, sometimes by using a little creativity and the tools you already have, you can get some fantastic results.

What are you doing for Father's Day?
