How was your weekend? We had a relatively busy one here catching up with family and friends, so I am looking forward to having a relatively quiet week now.
It was my dad’s birthday last week and like most guys he loves his cars, especially the classic ones. My brother and I ended up getting him this really cool classic car wall clock, so I wanted to create a card to match the gift and came up with this one.
To create the classic car I electronically cut this image from the weave cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo machine, then pieced the car together with glue.
I then cut different sized diagonal strips of patterned paper from the paper pad, to layer together on my card base. I love the foil checker plate paper and that licence plate patterned paper as they are perfect for creating guy cards. The licence plate paper was especially perfect for this card as the plates all read things relating to ‘dad’ and this was a card for my dad.
I then cut to size a panel of white cardstock, leaving a diagonal gap and stuck it to my card base using adhesive foam. I then stamped my sentiment onto the card base, glued the classic car just above it, and added some adhesive embellishments to finalise the card.
My dad absolutely love the card and his gift, and we had a great night celebrating his birthday with all the family.
I’ll be back soon to share another card. Enjoy the rest of your day.
