A card for a man who likes cars.
I created this card for the recent birthday of my fiance, he enjoys nothing more than spending time tinkering with cars. This is very handy when I enjoy my crafting, suits us both perfectly!
He was very impressed with the card which was very easy to construct. Stamping with these beautiful products can be kept very simple, or as embellished as you like. The beauty of card making and any paper crafting is you develop your own style and often this changes with your love of the hobby, mine certainly has, and continues to do so.
I used thick Whisper White card stock for the base and the wonderful classic garage 6×6 papers that will be retiring at the end of the month. The great news is that the stamp set and coordinating dies will remain. (Good tip is to order before the end of May to get them as a bundle and save 10%!)
Using the red background paper from the classic garage papers as a mat, I used another great paper which featured the image of the car stamp in the set. I stamped the car stamp in classic black, and using dimensionals I placed this over the same image on the paper, giving it a raised appearance.
Taking a strip of whisper white, I stamped it with one of the great stamps in the set in Real Red and added a couple of sets of gears I had die cut from the Silver Foil sheets available. Very simple but effective. Inside you can add further images from the stamp set to add interest.
I love this set of dies and stamps. It is so hard sometimes to find images for a male card. My father is another car nut, so I will be using this set for Father’s Day this year.
