Our Galaxy Dad Card for Father’s Day is not only super cool for the coolest dad in the galaxy, but the starry effect is made with a paint splatter technique. And I don’t know about you, but any time we can splatter paint it’s a good time.
Also included is a Free Printable Galaxy Dad Card Template. Simply cut out the letters for DAD and trace on black cardstock. We then used a few bright colors for the main stars and of course included a sweet Father’s Day message on the inside of the card.

Dad Galaxy Card Craft Step by Step Directions
Begin by printing the template. Cut out each of the letters of DAD along the black lines.
Now, fold a sheet of heavy black cardstock in half. Place the first D at the left edge, the top of the letter along the fold, and trace with a white pen. Continue with A positioned right next to the D. The letters should fit together like a puzzle. And do the same with the final D.
Cut out the extra around DAD, leaving the word and fold connected.
Next, gather a generous amount of white paint on a brush.
Use another brush to tap and flick the brush with paint, forming a fun paint splatter effect. Don’t worry about any big globs or streaks, it’s all a part of the starry galaxy.
Then, trace the stars on the color cardstock of your choice. Cut out.
Glue the large stars in the center of the Ds and the smaller one in the A.
Finally, write your Happy Father’s Day message on the inside of the card. We like, “You’re the best Dad in the galaxy!”. Another fun one is, “You’re out of this world, Dad!”.
