A simple Father's Day card...

Father's Day is coming up, and though my own father passed away in 2000, I still like to send a card to my one remaining uncle to let him know I am thinking of him. Here's the card I made:

The cardstock for my card base came from a masculine retro stack that I thought worked nicely for this card. The Polaroid-like frame and the car are both unbranded dies. I think the embossing folder that I used on the bottom of my frame is by Darice.

Isn't this car fun? I cut it out and then used the die as a stencil to ink up the black parts. After I took this picture, I went back and added a black faux pearl to the center of each wheel with a Viva D├ęcor pen.

The headlights were cut out of silver CS and then covered in Glossy Accents.

The inside of my card is very simple. Just a computer-generated sentiment.

I think I may be losing some more of the few marbles I have left. I have completely lost (misplaced?) a card I made a couple of weeks ago. It was this card, and I can't find it anywhere! I was going to send it to my daughter, along with a couple more cards I made for her, and I simply cannot find it. I searched through my entire card stash three times, looked under my work bench and all around my craft area, but it seems to have vanished into thin air. Guess I'll just have to make another one. At least I have already featured it on this blog, so I have a record of how it looks. Sheesh!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Great masculine card. I like that EF you used. Your losing a card, I identify with. You will probably run across it in the oddest place.

One of my uncles used to restore vintage motors... it was his passion and he was known for his amazing work. This reminds me so much of him!
Great card!

Great male card - that's a fab image and the embossing is a lovely finishing touch.
Your missing card is sure to turn up AFTER you make the replacement ;)
