Hello!! Happy Hump Day!!
Man has it been a whirlwind around here!! Some not so good and some AMAZING things happening too. I can't wait to share it all!! Today though I want share the card I made for the JustRite Friday Challenge #098-"Make It Manly"!! You should go to the JustRite Blog for AMAZING Inspiration if you've never visited you'll be glad you did!! I wanted to use some of the NEW Stamps I got for this challenge and 'boy' do I LOVE the results!! Father's Day is just around the corner and I wanted to make a card for my Grandpa who collects Old Vintage Cars!! His collection is AMAZING and I know he will ENJOY this card!! I used the Pattern Basics Borders, All Boy and Birthday Vintage Labels Four Stamp Sets along with the Coordinating Spellbinders Dies!!
I stamped and die cut the Large Label Frame from the Birthday Vintage Labels Four Stamp set and used the coordinating Spellbinder's die I so LOVE that JustRite has these coordinating dies that cut out their stamped images just PERFECTLY!! =) I then die cut the oval center and then stamped the Classic Car Image from the All Boy Stamp Set with Versa Mark and Embossed it using Black Ultra Fine Embossing Powder!! I LOVE this look!! I then wanted to create a border so I stamped the Harlequin bold image and I knew I wanted to layer the two images so I used the same embossing powder, but to make it have a mate finish I added some powder from my EK Success Powder tool and buffed the image!! Then I layered the Harlequin Dash image over the Harlequin bold image and I used the same embossing powder and I left it glossy so you could see the design over the Harlequin bold image!! I SO LOVE the end result!! I added some border punched strips of paper to the strip and attached it to the center of my card after I wrapped the punched borders with some Burlap Twine from May Arts!! I inked the edges of everything with some Distress Ink and then I added some Prima Mate Black Gems to the center of my card!! I really like the way it finishes everything off!!
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today and I hope if need any "MANLY" Inspiration for Father's Day you'll go check out all of the entries over on the JustRite Challenge!! Have a FABULOUS WEEK!! I will be back to share another card and some other random information!! =)
