You can personalize this Father’s day card with your own photos and the colors you choose. Add your own art, messages and accents for a card that is unique to you. You can also use these same fun photos as a gift for dad. Print out the photos and add them to a 5×7 frame for a keepsake he will love!

Printing Your Personalized Photos:

For this project I used the HP Social Media Snapshots app for iPhone to print out my photos. The app has a variety of styles to choose from and will allow you to print right from your phone. If you don’t have the app or an iPhone, you can print your photos however you’d like.

  1. Open the HP Social Media Snapshots iPhone app and follow the app instructions to print your photos.
  2. Select your photos, you can choose from your Instagram, Facebook, Flickr or Camera Roll photos.
  3. Choose your style template. I choose the “clean” template, it’s the last choice when looking at frame options. This option looks like a polaroid style photo when you print it out.
  4. Note: you can enter text on other templates if you would like to.
  5. Select to print and then print to your local printer. I chose to print my photos at the 5×7 size.

  1. Optionally, color and cut out the card accents and place them wherever you’d like. I used the word/phrases to add extra sentiments to each photo panel. You can write your own messages, draw little doodles or cut out shapes from the printable page.
