Hubby's Birthday Card

Boy this is a week of birthdays. Today is my hubby's. I made him a shape card using this fishing vest from Paper Dolls for Everyday Cricut Cartridge. 
"I know he can't wait to go fishing"

Here is the inside of the card.

This is what I made for him.

Gary's Mom and Cora and a view of the lake from our cabin.

Gary's son James, Gary, Gary's dad and Cora

 Cora and I on her visit at Christmas. She has a smile like her daddy.

I got this box from JoAnn's (I think?). It spins and has glass in all four picture pockets. I painted it and glued on DP. Next I inked the edges. Then I added some embellishments and the pictures. On the top I drill two holes and tied an old wooden spool for the handle to open the box. I added one of his feathers. Then I filled the box with candy and a gift certificate for a book for his iPad. 
I sure hope he likes his gift and that he will put it on his desk at work. I really enjoyed making this gift for him.

Thanks for stopping,

What an awesome card and gift! I love the vest shape. Super perfect for a guy card. Your altered spinning photo cube is so beautiful. You can see all of the love that went into it. And what a great touch with the wooden spool on top! Best, Curt
