Vintage Boy Birthday

I made this card for my father-in-law's birthday using one of my few remaining Lili of the Valley 'Vintage Boys' Art Pad images.

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 lower 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' twice from white card, layered these before inlaying them into the image and attaching the coloured sentiment on the top.

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:
     AAA Birthday Card Challenge - Patterned Paper
     Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge - Anything Goes
     Love to Craft - Anything Goes

Great use of the image. I still have a few of my LOTV art pads carefully hoarded after they stopped making them. Silly really not to use them.Note to self! Hugs Mrs A.
