Masculine Birthday Album Card

Hi everyone,
I hope you've had a good week.
Our weather is getting very hot and humid
 - hopefully it will cool off for Father's Day this Sunday.

Sorry this will be a long post..with lots of pictures but I really wanted you to see how my album card turned out....I'm so happy with the results.   I followed the instructions given on the fabulously talented Gloria Stengel Scraps of Life blog that you can find here.

I needed to make something special for my favourite Octogenarian and I think this will fit the bill.

The first picture shows the box and front of the card.

 Papers are from Grapic 45 Good Ol'Sport collection.
The birthday circle was a freebie that Netty generously supplied a long time ago
Graphic 45 envelope/ ribbon
Tim Holtz keyhole and filmstrip

Next is a picture of the card open to the front


and here is the back
Sentiments are from TLC, cut with Spellbinders Scallop circles
Intials are Tim Holtz

Here is the back of the box...to show you how it closes.
DP is Recollections Colored Core Paper


I would like to enter Crafty Hoarders Challenge #9 where the theme is Folds
A Creative Romance - Happy Birthday

Thank you so much for stopping by and your lovely comments are always appreciated.
hugs,
Pat K xx
