Dad's Birthday Card

So my stepdad turned 49 on Sunday so I thought I would make him a sweet card. Imagine that! I have been a little fixated with the clear cards these days, so I thought I would create him one with bright, bold graphics and a simple sentiment. Supplies used: a clear acrylic card by CTMH, red houndstooth Hambly paper & a found clipart image of a VW bus. Don't you just love the wooden 49 in the center? It is actually from a vintage lotto game! The fun part about clear cards is that they have such a dimensional feel, and you can add your image to the front leaving the perfect hidden place for your personal message on the inside! Thanks for stopping by!
