Here Come The Boys Challenge

Blog Candy Offer Deadline March 31 - three Sparkle N Sprinkle Sets - click here for details.

A quick A2-size card to say hello to my dad. He likes things without any embellishments - do you find that difficult?

It is also difficult for me to make A2 size cards.

I'm trying to get into the CAS mode. Hope it happens soon. LOL

It's a card within a card, so the front opens with a little "classic message" and the inside, too, for a little note.

In my stash of Miscellaneous Things (which I'm trying to use up) were these older postage stamps.

Do these only count as SEMI-embellishments? They are sorta classic, too.

Just like my dad, who will be 86 shortly.

This is for the "Here Come The Boys Challenge" using their picture inspiration.

Products used:
Spellbinders Labels Eight for the mini card
Spellbinders Labels One for the layering
Cardstock: SU DP, navy, white, blue
Ink: Cloud blue dye base, navy dye base
Stamps: Just for Fun

Thanks for taking a peek.

What a fantastic interpretation of the inspiration photo, Donna! I don't know whether the stamps are embellishments or not but they are perfect on this card. What if we say that since they lie flat and don't have any dimension to them. they aren't embellishments? Love, love, LOVE those classic cars.

Brenda said...

What a perfect masculine card. I have a difficult time keeping things to the A2 size also LOL... great minds think alike. I'm sure your dad will love the card...

Fabulous card for your dad! Love everything about it and how clever to use the stamps as embellishments. Love the opening too - very unique and fun.

Monica said...

Hello Donna, your Dad will LOVE this card in a card. So CAS and yet has so much.

Great masculine card, Donna, I'm sure your Dad will love it. Happy Birthday to him. Hope you're feeling better than you did last week. Take care. Wendy H (FP)xx

Great Card Donna. Love the postage stamps on it. They're flat, they don't have glitter, they don't count as embellishments, just layers.
I like the card within a card idea. If my craft table wasn't cleaned off, I'd go try one right now! Nice job.

Carolyn said...

Hi De,
I bet your dad is going to love this one. I love the vintage cars and I bet he will too.
You have made it very interesting by adding the extra piece that opens on the front of the card too.

Awesome Masculine card Miss Donna!! Love the Fabulous vintage car images!! Super idea to use the postage stamps for embellies too! Looks Awesome! Bet your Dad will Love this! 8-)

How perfectly sweet for your Dad. I love the stamp embellishment. CAS is the rage right now (I can see why with the new increase in postal and so difficult for me. But I have seen some incredibly beautiful cards.
Bear Hugs,
