I'm A Travelin' Man

Remember the song by Ricky Nelson...
Travelin' Man?
I think I just really aged
anywho, I have a 'travlin' mans card today.

I have to admit, I am not the best a making 'male cards,
but I made around 60 plus for Tutti
and this is one of them...first time on my blog!
Those cards sure took me out of my comfort zone,
but now I have LOTS of manly cards when I need them.

This one was pretty simple, 
but I love how it came together.
I used a cogs wheel paper and map paper along with an atlas paper (whew)
all three which had been in my stash for years...ahhh it feels so GOOD to use them!

I popped up the atlas paper, 
then added my Tutti Designs Vintage Car
cut from a bronze metallic paper.

This will be an easy card to grab for a guy when needed
and an easy mailer, too!

Entering the following challenges:

Great guy card. I struggle with guy cards too. Something like this would be great for a friend of ours. He and my husband take a guy trip every year. Could you tell me where the Atlas came from? It adds a great touch to the card. Thanks for sharing.

Love that classic car, and I also love how you have used the map, it's a perfect backdrop. Wonderful shabby chic feel on this one, great man card!

I really love this car AND your card! I'm no good at masculine cards unless they feature a funny character. Maybe it's because I don't buy masculine stamps or dies. I'm stunned every time you mention those 60 Tutti cards. Unbelievable! Why don't you have help with that?
