Three different Dad card SVG templates to choose from - use as a Father's Day card, Dad birthday card, or just to show Dad you love him on any Dad occasion!

Dad card SVG templates for Cricut and other similar cutting machinesSend Dad your greetings with a hand-made card - for Father's Day, Dad's birthday or any other Dad celebration!
  • Suitable for Cricut and similar cutting machines (or hand-cut if you prefer)
  • Includes outer card with design, inner card & envelope
  • SVG, PNG, DXF & EPS formats
  • Personal use or make to sell (small craft-businesses only)
  • Make physical (craft) products only - no digital use, sales, or sharing

My Dad card templates (for Cricut and other cutting machines) are super-easy to make, have a simple, contemporary design (that's not too fussy for Dad!), and you can get creative with colours to make it perfect for your own Dad!

I designed these for my own Dad - so I know they're good!

There's three to choose from:

  • Happy Birthday Dad card 
  • Happy Father's Day card
  • Dad card

All of them are based on the same basic card template, so the making-instructions for all of them are the same...

  • First of all, you will need to set the lines to score with your machine - there's some help with this here for Cricut users, including choosing your scoring tool, scoring manually if you don't have a scoring tool for your machine, and how to set the line to score in Cricut Design Space.
  • I also have a craft tutorial on actually folding and making the card and envelope here.

So let's just take a look at the cards, so that you can decide which you like best...

I make all my cards (and all my SVG files) with my Cricut Maker - to test everything out and make sure it looks good and works well, and also to try out some different colour combinations, too, to inspire you - so I hope this does inspire you...

I've tried to get some nice 'Dad' colours in here - as I know that some Dads aren't that keen on pretty or soft colours - so for each card, I've tried out a bright colour combination (which is the one in the template) and a colour combination using a neutral colour. See what you think...

If your Dad's a sports fan, try making the card in his favourite team colours - that always goes down well!

Father's Day Card SVG File

I made these cards with Sizzix textured cardstock for the outer card, and generic lightweight cardstock (160gsm) for the inner card and envelope.

The lime-green card is colourful and fresh-looking - the dark blue interior looks great through the cut-out design - but be sure you have a white or silver pen to write on this dark colour card.

I added a bright yellow card to keep the whole feel very bright and fun!

The grey Father's Day card is a more subtle look, also teamed with a soft grey envelope - but I kept the splash of colour for the inner card so that the design really stands out well...

I used Cricut cardstock for the blue-green outer card, and Sizzix textured cardstock for the brown outer card. For the inner card and envelope of each of these two cards, I used a lightweight generic craft card (160gsm).

Again, if you decide to use a darker tone, like the dark blue I used here for the inner card, please make sure that you have a white or silver pen to write on it.

This is a nice blue-green card from the Cricut 'Jewel' cardstock pack - that I teamed up with a dark blue cardstock for the inner card which gives a nice colourful birthday card for Dad, that's also quite sophisticated-looking. I went for a big jolt of colour with the bright green envelope, just to have some fun!

I went for classic brown and blue for this Dad birthday card. The pale blue is a great contrast against the deep brown to show off the cut-out design really well. I picked a lovely bright blue for the envelope. This is a really good classic look for a Dad card.

'Dad' Card SVG

I created this 'Dad' card SVG template, as an option to be used for either Dad's birthday card, a Father's Day card, or any other occasion when you want to send Dad a card just to show you love him!

It's a really bold and simple design that, literally, just says 'DAD'... with just a little bit of 'star-quality' too, because I know your Dad's a star!

I used Cricut cardstock for the yellow outer card and Sizzix textured cardstock for the grey outer card. The inner card and envelope for both cards are made from lightweight generic craft card (160gsm weight).

Once again, if you're using a dark colour, like the dark blue I've used as the inner card for the yellow design, please ensure you have a white or silver pen capable of writing on (and showing-up on!) the dark surface.

I chose yellow for the Dad card template - for its happy feel - this is a colour combination to go for when you want to send a big smile!

The dark blue inner card stands out really well against the yellow, showing off the design - and to keep it really bright and cheerful, I paired up the card with a vibrant green for the envelope.

I picked this bold orange for the inner card to go with the grey outer card for this Dad card - I think it gives a very modern look, but it's still a classic! I picked another bold colour, red, for the envelope - but I think it would also look great to carry-through the orange theme to the envelope too.
