Birthday Carte Postale


This is a card I made for my Dad's birthday (which, ahem, was a month ago...)
I am still not very comfortable with masculine card so that is an area that needs more practice... ;-)
My dad loves to write and he's the one sending postcards to people when he goes on vacation so I thought "Carte postale" was the set to use, especially since I had found this paper with pics of old postcards. My attempt at making the paper look more vintage didn't go so well though since the distress ink I used was obviously too dark, but I like the end result nonetheless. The sentiment and bird are heat embossed with copper powder so it has a nice patina IRL.
I don't know that it is very masculine but I like those colors, and if you can't send cards you're not too sure about to your close family, whom can you send them to? ;-)

I think most card maker find men difficult to make cards for. I think you've done a fantastic job on this. I love the bird on. I'm sure your dad will love it.
