I recently discovered some old family photos in my mother's cupboard. The photos are more than 50 years old, and all of them are coming from the era when black and white photos were still regarded as fashionable.
When I looked at these photos, I immediately thought of all the craft projects that these photos could be used for. I decided to use one of these photos to make a birthday card for my father. This card can also be adjusted for Father's Day, or any other occasion when you would like to make a card for a man.
Note: If you can't find a matching envelope, use a light tan sheet of paper and make your own envelope. You can find some templates for envelopes at: http://desktoppub.about.com/library/weekly/xenvtemp.htm.
Editor's Note: You will want to measure your photo choice and adjust card and envelop sizes accordingly.
