Card For Steve

I've had a break in packing to make a card for my son-in-law who's birthday is April 1st.  No comments about April Fools, please (after all, he had the courage sense to marry my daughter!)  I've had to make it so I can post it, then I've got to pack all my craft stuff away (sob!)  Thank goodness there's my last craft group on Wednesday to keep me going.
Anyway, here's the card:
I've used the sweet Perfect Postage stamp set.  It's so cute, I could sit there and play with it in a most child-like manner, for hours.  I've used Baja Breeze ink, Marina Mist, Night of Navy and Not Quite Navy.  I've backed the 'stamps' on a strip of Marina Mist card stock, then stuck that onto a panel of Marina Mist stripy dsp, with a scalloped bottom.  The reason it's that height is that there are two horizonal score lines along the bottom with the Happy Birthday sentiment in the middle, but it doesn't show up very well in the photograph.  The whole set of stamps is lovely and such fun to use.
Here's a picture of the inside:

I am really enjoying doing more to the insides of my cards now, and Stampin Up have such great things to use.  Well, although I thoroughly enjoyed making this card, I am off to make something very feminine indeed, to redress the balance!
I'm sure I'll be able to post a couple of more times before we lose our internet connection and hopefully it won't be too long after that before we have broadband again.
Thanks for looking in today.  I actually need your help with a little something.  I am desperately trying to find a stamp of an interesting looking house that I can use for new home cards.  If you know of anything, please leave me a comment telling me where I can find it.
Thanks for your help.

  1. No help from me on the stamp...sorry....not crafty. *S*

    This card has a perfect, masculine feel. Nice color and quite elegant...again.

  2. Lovely card Jane...great colours.


  3. Great card Jane. Love all the blues, they go together so beautifully. Good luck with your move. Hope your craft room is one of the first to be sorted!! Michelle x

  4. I like the cake postage stamps and they look great in the blues you've used too. Have you found your house stamp yet? I have a retired 'neighborhood' jumbo wheel that might be good? Do let me know if you're interested. Vicky x

  5. Oh wow Jane stunning cards love the simple design, and that stamp is just fabulous. hugs Shirleyxxx

  6. Fab card Jane, I like the way you used your image and the DP looks good behind it too,
