Card for my brother

Hello Friends and Welcome Visitors,

To Enter My Prize Giveaway, Please Click HERE

Today I would like to show you a pop box card that I made for my brother's birthday.  I saw it in the Father's Day cards last summer and I knew right away that I would make it for his birthday.

This pop box card was very work intensive, but hey, that is what makes your brain cells grow right?  I chalked the car to give it a kind of dusty traveling look.

This is how it looks from the top.

I had some Tim Holtz papers and embellishments that I purchased a very long time ago, they sure came in handy for this card.

The postcard and stamp are made up of some "fussy cut" Tim Holtz papers.

I found this paper that said "Come to Minnesota" my brother lives in Minnesota, it was quite a feat to get this paper lined up to show that sentiment.

This is the back of the card, the sentiment is from Just Rite.

I made the envelope from Tim Holz stamp paper cause I liked the way it looked and you can see what the card looks like folded inside.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
