Grandpa birthday card


I wanted to put something different on a card for my sons to give their grandpa. His hobbies are model trains and rugby but I always put them on his cards. I have used this die to make a card for a lady and I wondered if it would work on a male card. I hope he will like it.

I  have made a 8x8in white easel card.  I matt and layered the top and the bottom with blue card and white embossed card. I embossed the white card with a Sue Wilson embossing folder. 

I have used a Xcut die to cut the various elements for the family tree. I printed the names before cutting them out with the heart die. I also printed the family name before die cutting it. I have used a punch for the leaves because it was so much quicker than cutting the leaves with the individual die in the family tree set. 

 I have printed a sentiment and die cut it with a Tonic rectangle die and then die cut the next size in the nesting set in blue and then one in brown. I attached the rectangles together with double sided tape and the attached them to the card base with sticky foams so they will act as a stopper for the top of the card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
