I actually made this card on Saturday but was too tired to post after all the late football games. I work better listening to something on TV and I can't sit and watch a football game because of all the crazy calls the umpires make or miss...It is amazing that from game to game there is no consistency! I know you did not come here to hear about my game analysis of umpires. Amy got this die for me last weekend when she went to a trade show. It is a wonderful Tim Holtz card die. I stared at it all week not knowing what to do with it. This is what I cam up with!
The card base is kraft and it is matted with a Tim Holtz designer card stock...sorry I don't know the name. I hoard these pads when I buy them on sale, then tear off the fronts and do what with them??? I don't know. The background was machine stitched and at the bottom I added a thin strip that looks kind of like the old brick roads. I die cut the car and pieces out in white cs, then proceed to rub them with several inks(my secret) to achieve this look! I liked this much better than a flat black. The people in the card are cut from other pieces of TH card stock. the hat was off another card that I hand stamped and did not like. The gears at the top were punched from mor of his paper. The speech window and the happy birthday banner were stamped/rubbed with Lost Lagoon ink, both stamps and ink are Stampin'Up!.
I love this card, I love the car as well. Great card for a man, don't you think? Sunday has been a busy day as well, so I need to go and get all my listing done over on my Etsy Shop. Have a beautiful Monday. We got rain over the weekend and cooler weather, but the air conditioner is back on with the high for today supposed to be in the 90's. I am very grateful for the rain we got and the cooler temperatures for two days anyway! Thanks for stopping by for a visit.
