The Tropical Oasis Designer Paper provides the focal point for today’s masculine birthday card.
Do you remember these classic Woody cars? My brother paid $50.00 for one back in the 60s. What a deal! Problem was, it didn’t run. But, my mother loved anything old, and my father loved anything with wood, so they agreed to let it sit behind our house. I think it was still there when we moved.
Today’s card looks simple, and it is. However, you wouldn’t believe how long it took to complete. It’s unusual for me to tear up a card, but its predecessor is in the trash. I think I had too many goals in mind, because I was making it for a specific person’s birthday, plus two card challenges, but I persevered.
The first thing I did, for both cards, was to crop the Woody from the Tropical Oasis Designer Paper. To give it a nice shape, I used a Painted Labels Die.
TIP: Take your time figuring out which cars to crop. Some cars have more space surrounding them than others.
Next, I stamped the palm trees, from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set, in Pear Pizzazz Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Then, I layered this on a Soft Sea Foam card base.
I used “Happy Birthday” from the Clubhouse Stamp Set, because it was the right size, and had its die from the Golf Club Die Set for cutting.
Since this card is for a certain person, I stamped “You’re a classic” inside, and decorated the envelope flap.
TIP: Cut a piece of DSP 5 3/4″ by 2 1/4″, add a thin line of Liquid Glue around the edge of the flap, attach the DSP, and trim the excess using the flap as a template.
The two challenges are:
