I often see on forums that crafters struggle for ideas for mens' cards and I have far more male relatives than female so I get loads of practice with making male themed cards. However this year for my dad's birthday I wanted something different he usually gets a gardening related one as he loves his garden. So here is his birthday card which I am using for my DT card for this challenge as well.
All the images are from the Boys to Men CD
I added my own die cut cut clouds to the blue backing paper and then matted and layered the papers up. The border is also from the CD and I used two different cloud design labels from the tags and sentiments folder and added my own text using my craft studio. The main image is one of Ooh La La's pyrimage images but I left a couple of layers out so it doesn't stand too proud.
Inside the card I used the base image of the pyrimage and expanded it and then reduced the opacity of the print so I could cut two matching sheets for lining the card. I added a blank oval using My Craft Studio and also added a sentiment that says it all about my Dad he has always been special and always my Dad.
I am entering the card into the following Challenges
