Good Evening Crafters!
Today I want to share a birthday card I made for a VERY SPECIAL Birthday.
I needed to create a manly birthday card this week, so I was excited to do something a little different. This is the first card I have made in a long while that I did not use glitter on.
I created the chrome diamond plate with white cardstock and 3 different colors of gray and metallic silver inks. I colored the cardstock by stamping a light gray all over the paper. Next I added the Metallic silver ink all over the light gray, a little more randomly. Lastly I added the dark gray around the edges.
After I got the shading just right, I ran it through the embossing machine
with the diamond plate embossing folder.
I used copic markers to color the truck. I wanted it have some variances in the color (just like the real truck I was trying to copy).
I added a few wrench cutouts because the man I am making this
card for LOVES to mechanic.
I also hand lettered the license plate with HB 2U (Happy Birthday To You).
I also pop dotted the blue banner and the truck.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
These are some awesome blogs sites with some awesome designers with some awesome inspiration.
Did I mention they were awesome?!
