Jake's Birthday Card with My Birthday Gifts

Hello Stamping Friends:

Today is my Birthday, yesterday I took myself out for a little Birthday shopping. I was having a bit of trouble coming up with a card for Jake. Jake is a good friend of ours who is going to be 65 on Saturday. It would seem that I don't own many masculine stamps. The only other one I have I gave him last year.

In my mind, I already had the dog and boot image from For Father as my focal point, but I did not know what to put it with. I had been wanting the Nestability Labels 3 so I put that in my cart, so now I had my center image figured out.

As I was browsing through the embossing folders I saw the Fleur De Lis folder and quickly dismissed it. As I was browsing around the store I spotted copper foil on a card that they had on display. Well what do you know, the Fleur De Lis and was it outstanding! I now knew how I was going to finish Jakes' card.

I already had some copper card stock on hand, purchased the copper foil and embossing folder and here is my card.

This is the inside of the card.

Hope you like and that Jake will too.
