Take Flight Birthday Card


My father's birthday is coming up this weekend and I made this card for him. It is always so difficult to "buy" cards for him because we don't have one of those relationships that are described in all of the Hallmark cards. You know the ones that I am talking about. The ones that say "you were such a wonderful father...always there for me, etc." My card says Happy Birthday on the inside. He loves those mushy cards, but I just can't do it. In my opinion, what better card can you give a parent than a "home made" one? This card is made with the CTMH stamp set "Take Flight". The paper is "A guy thing". And the colors are Barn Red, Desert Sand, Cocoa, and New England Ivy. I colored in the image with Prisma Colored Pencils and went over it with mineral spirits.

Beautiful card. I am sure your father will love the fact that you took the time to make him a card. My dad loves it too, and he is not a mushy guy. Good luck! Chris
