70 Years Old!

My uncle recently celebrated his 70th birthday and I discovered that it was almost impossible to get a strong, dignified masculine card for an older man. Most age-cards stop at 60 or they were way too soppy. So I set out to make one that reflected my uncle's passion for the outdoors, strong enigmatic character, loving nature and quirky sense of humour. And here it is, my tribute to a very special one-of-a-kind uncle!


O meu tio festejou recentemente o seu 70º aniversário e eu descobri que é praticamente impossível encontrar um cartão masculino, forte e sóbrio para os mais seniores. A maioria dos cartões de aniversario só vão até aos 60, ou então são uma piéguisse total. Por isso meti-me ao trabalho para fazer um cartão que transmitisse a paixão do meu tio pela natureza, o seu forte caracter enigmatico, o seu ar amoroso e o aguçado sentido de humor. E aqui está, o meu tributo para um tio muito especial.
