Vintage Boy

A friend saw the 'Vintage Boy' birthday card I recently made and asked me to make one for her father.  I didn't have the same image, but I used another image from the Art Pad.

I die cut the precoloured image with a rectangle die, die cutting from both ends so I could elongate the shape.  I then die cut 'DAD' from the upper corner and set the pieces aside.  I trimmed a piece of wood effect paper so it was slightly smaller than the card blank and attached it to a thin piece of white card.  I then die cut an elongated rectangle from the centre, ensuring it was the same size as my topper.  I attached the frame to the card and inlaid the image.  I die cut 'DAD' from a snippet of the wood effect paper and inlaid it into the card.




To make this card I used:
     7" x 5" white matt card blank
     Lili of the Valley 'Vintage Boys' Art Pad image
     My Favorite Things 'Inside & Out Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics' and Creative Expressions 'From the Heart - Male Relations' dies
     Papermania 'Capsule Elements - Wood' paper
     Snippets of white matt card

I am entering the following challenges:
     Allsorts - Anything Goes
