I have two nephews who are turning 16 in May. One lives in the rural part of upstate New York and the other lives closer to a major city in Connecticut. I made these cards for my nephews who both just got their driving permits.
This card is for "The New Country Driver".
This card is for "The New City Driver".
The card I made for my nephew who lives near the city reminds me of a time when my parents took my family on a trip to NYC one summer. It was around 1978 or so. My father drove a blue Chevy station wagon; it wasn't a Woody one like on my card, but it was still a station wagon. It had a rear third seat where, if your stomach could tolerate it, you could face backwards and look out the rear window.
Dad decided to drive the whole family (9 of us) in the station wagon to NYC to do some sightseeing. To make the story short, we ended up getting lost when trying to leave the city and ended up in the Bronx at night.
Products used to make the first card include:
For the second card I used the following dies in addition to the tree dies above:
These cards were fun to make since the recipients are my nephews.
