What We Like

  • Simple design that's easy to customize.

  • Unlike many of the other card templates, it's not floral-heavy.

What We Don't Like

This is certainly not Microsoft's only thank-you card, so you can search for additional designs as well.

As with most templates, the text is customizable, so be creative thanking your father.
