If the dad at your house likes cars, this greeting card is sure to get his interest.  The silver metallic vehicle is fully loaded, as they say at car dealerships.  It not only has a shiny metal finish but three dimensional, glossy, tail lights and rear window.  And of course it wouldn’t be a Father’s Day card without the entire stick family in the rear window. Everything you need is included here - the template for the metallic shape, the card image featuring the vanity plate - “Best Dad In The World”.  Just download, print, cut, and glue!
