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


  1. Fantastic card and a great looking Dad for his age!

  2. What a wonderful card, Kimberley - you've found just the right stamps for that camera-shy father of yours. Well done!

    1. Thanks Win! He really liked the card. I did get the stamps with my Dad in mind, but my daughter's boyfriend and his father are both car fanatics too, so I'm sure we will get lots of use out of it!
