Cruisin' Into 76 Birthday Card

If you've visited my blog many times, you know how hard it is for me to do guy cards.  I mean, seriously, no flowers?  Ha!  I try really hard not to put flowers on all of my cards, and I doubt my father-in-law would love them nearly as much as I do.  Thus, he got a card with an old car on the front.  This card was made for his 76th birthday.  I bet you figured that out, didn't ya?  Here are the details:

Size:  4 1/2" x 6 1/2"
Card stock:  Core'dinations, DCWV
Patterned papers:  DCWV, Unknown
Car/Cruisin': Nifty Fifties Cricut cartridge cut at 1 3/4" (I cut the car in black and then in red so the tires would be black.)
Postage stamp background:  Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge cut at 5"
Star:  George Cricut cartridge cut at 1 3/4"
76:  George Cricut cartridge cut at 1"
Little stars:  Punch
"Into":  Computer generated and punched with a Stampin' Up punch
I also used an EK Success border punch behind the postage stamp label, along with a strip of red and a strip of blue paper.

I hope my father-in-law likes it, and I hope you like it too!  Thanks for your comments.  Be inspired!
