Birthday card for my Dad

Hello my friends!  I know it's been a little while since I've posted.  Life just seems to have a way of keeping you busy, doesn't it? lol.  Well, another thing I haven't done for a while is make a card.  Today is my Dad's 78th birthday!  So I made a card for him and thought I would share it with you.  I don't know about the rest of you, but I find it a bit of a challenge making masculine cards.  I don't really know why it's a challenge.  Maybe it's because there isn't as many masculine themed stamps and dies as there are feminine.  Or maybe it's just the way my creative mind works, I don't know.  So when I see a stamp set that I can use to make some "man" themed cards or tags, I like to pick them up.  I picked up both of these sets a while back with my Dad in mind.  He loves vintage cars, so these were perfect.  One set is by Chapel Road Stamps and the other is from Impression Obsession.  I used some of my patterned paper from my stash and black Recollections card and a pre-made card  I popped up the sentiment with foam tape to give the card a little dimension.  All in all, this was a fairly simple card., I deliberately didn't make it too "fussy" in keeping with the masculine theme.

Not bad for 78!  (actually, this pic is about a year old, he hates getting his picture taken!)

Well, Dad liked his card and I hope you do, too!
Thanks so much for popping in, have an awesome day!  xo
