Birthday Suit

It’s that time of year when not only the holidays are near, but my Pop’s birthday is here. Let me tell you the story behind this card…

I wanted to tip my own personal creative meter with his birthday card. I was in competition with myself to top his Father's Day Card (click here to view). After much creative pondering and Google searching for ideas, I got the idea for this card when I came across the Father's Day Trio Card Kit Instruction Manual (click here to access). 

ETA: to make links more apparent.

I said to myself, “Self…” Just kiddidng, but I did think this card would the creative challenge I’ve been looking for. My pops is very dapper in his suits and he thinks so too. LOL! So, I knew this card would be a hit with him.

Anywho…needless to say pops loved it. He probably enjoyed the card more for what was on the inside. I had a photo of him posing in a suit and underneath the photo was “Still Looking Good!

The rest as they say is history. Please let me know what you think.

~Supplies~
Paper: Dark Brown and Green CS (Hobby Lobby), Designer Paper (K&Company)
Accessories: Ribbon, Buttons

'til I craft again or have something to say...

Okay, I love a man in a suit and this cards just screams "smooth, classy, even dapper" at me. The whole effect of the suit is awesome. Great job on this one! Glad Pop's enjoyed it.

What do I think? I think it's AWESOME! Now, if it were my pop, it would have to be a flannel shirt and overalls---still has the farmer in him! You did a splendid job! And your SCS snowflake card is sweet, too!
