Tartan pin board card for a sporty man




The vintage "High Striker" connotation with fairground attractions and the winner's cup seemed to go well with the tartan patterned card base which I found a week ago at the local Lidl supermarket. To my surprise they were labelled "Christmas card" - not sure why as there's nothing christmassy about it... they are blank inside, too.

To add an element of surprise, I tarted up the plain kraft inside of the card with an inlay which I gold embossed with the scores of "Happy Birthday to you", that is a DRS stamp.
