Golden Oldies

I made this card using the stamp set Golden Oldies. It is in the Mini-Catalog from Stampin' Up! and you can order it on my website:
I did use some retired designer paper and cardstock for this card, but I really have so much that I need to use up before the new catalog comes out in July and I want to buy more!!!
I stamped the old man image onto whisper white cardstock. He is colored in using the watercolor pencils and then with the blender pen. I love using blender pens! I then doodled a little around the edges.
The saying "I still have a full deck. I just shuffle slower." is too funny! I think I might send this down to my Dad in Florida! I always pick on him about playing shuffle board with the older people in their retirement park, and now that they've moved out of there he might miss them, lol! I used the large oval and scallop oval punches for the saying.
I love the jumbo brads on the left hand side. I think I got this idea from a card that I saw in the Splitcoast Stampers gallery. I placed them all very easily using my Crop-A-Dile! I really love that tool. I need to get a new one because mine is broken and I can't set the regular eyelettes with it anymore. Did you know that Stampin' Up! sells the Crop-A-Dile? I will be getting a new one soon I hope!
Happy Stampin!

This looks great Jen! Love the doodling around the image and that sentiment funny! The jumbo eyelets look great too!

Perfect card for your dad - love all the masculine touches with the grommets - great coloring and doodling too!

great card, like use of jumbo eyelets for embellishments- tough to find embellishments to use with male cards.
