Timeless Classic

Wow! It's Wednesday already. The weeks just fly by. I have another masculine birthday card today. I needed a card for my FIL's birthday this month. I'm not sure why I don;t make masculine birthday cards ahead of time but I usually have girly borthday cards but not ones for the guys.


My FIL owns a tractor that's in the vinatge of the 1940s. So I thought this silhouette of a tractor (Graphics Fairy) would bring a smile to his face. I colored in the scenery with Spectrum Noir markers and die cut the image with MFT Cross Stitch Ovals backed with dark blue card stock. I inked the edge with fired brick distress ink.The background plaid is from my scrap box and it was die cut with an MFT Blueprints 3 die. The sentiment, from Create with TLC, is punched with an EK Success tag punch and inked with fired brick distress ink as well. I used washi tape in the top right hand corner of the card and brads for embellishments. I used the Die Cuttin Diva's sketch this week for inspiration.

I am entering these challenges:

That's it for me today. I hope your week is going well. We are on the down side of the week anyway. We have bright sunshine today but rather windy. But the daffodils are blooming so I hope we don;t get a nasty frost. Take care!

Love this card- great sketch! Hubby and Mom grew up on farms- nothing like a cool vintage tractor : ) Awesome!

That is a great vintage image and will be perfect for your FIL. I'm with you on the not having enough masculine birthday cards in my stash and I'm trying to be better about it. I think there are many more female related challenges too so that doesn't help our cause.

That's really cute. I'm sure he'll love it, and pretty cool that he owns a vintage tractor! I bet it still works.

I have very few masculine cards ready ahead of time, too. I also wonder why they're so hard to make. I wonder if male card makers struggle with them? . . .

Anyhoo -- Thanks for using our card sketch as inspiration for your card this week!
