Classic Garage Birthday
I hope all of you had a great weekend! This evening we were able to celebrate my nephew’s 20th birthday (a bit belated) and I had fun creating this card especially for him.
I decided to pull out the retired Classic Garage Designer Series Paper (Stampin’ Up!) and paired with a verse sentiment from the retired Verve Stamps, Scripture Medley 3 along with a few die cut gears.
The car image was fussy-cut from the designer paper and mounted onto three layers of black cardstock (to create a chipboard type of embellishment).
The background layer started out as a piece of white cardstock embossed with a diamond plate embossing folder, then platinum embellishment mousse was applied with a pallet knife (my embellishment mousse has dried up so I had to spritz the background with water and once the panel was almost dry, re-embossed it with the embossing folder).
The verse sentiment was heat embossed with clear embossing powder and the gear die was cut from a silver metallic paper I had in my stash. I added a bit of shimmer to the car and used a silver metallic marker on the rims of the wheels. A few rhinestones later and the card was finished!
I decided to incorporate the Splitcoaststampers SC785 Sketch into the design and will also be linking to the Little Red Wagon #534 “Aw, Man!” Challenge and the Simon Says Wednesday “AnythingGoes” Challenge.
A scrap strip of the car background designer paper was adhered on three sides to the inside of the card. This allowed us to create a pocket so we could slip a gift card from Chick Fil-A (his favorite lunch spot)- he seemed to be pleased :-)
