Dad's Day

Hi!

**I am thrilled that this card received the Comet Award from Papercraft Star on 6/19/12**

I managed to make another "dreaded man card". I took a break from some other crafty assignments and quickly put this together. (i.e. out of necessity)! :-))))

So here we go......
I started with a Kraft card base from The Kraft Outlet. The next is a mix of this and that and all from my scrap pile. I still had a library card on my desk, so I incorporated it in this card too. 

The stamps I used are all from Crafty Secrets: Car Classics. The car was paper pieced using some patterned paper also in my stash. So I got a "little" girly and gave pearls for headlights. :-)))

I am joining in The Kraft Journal - Cards for Him

Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge - Shopping from the scrap pile again! I guess I am making up for loss playtime! :-)

Sorry, keeping it short and sweet! If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.

Great man card, Tammy, sorry you dreaded making it! I find them so easy to make and men are hardly concerned if they even get a card, much less what is on it(my opinion only) You make all your cards with lots of care. Thanks for joining us this week for the Papercraft Star, "Father's Day" challenge, hope you have a lovely Father's Day!

I think you are too hard on yourself because this is a fabulous masculine design! You might dread them, but you do an amazing job anyway! Love the kraft base and all the layers. The library card with the checkered flag is fabulous, and I love the map die cut with the banner strip and car. The pearl headlights are just the most perfect touch. :)
You had asked about the focal image I used on my Father's Day card....it's a journaling card from Crate Paper's Toy Box collection...
