Hi there! Today's card is totally masculine and all made with dies (other than the sentiment). It's for my husband's birthday and, rather than making something cute or funny this year, I decided to make a card somewhat reminiscent of our travels and camping this past summer. A little travel trailer die would be cute, but how often would I use it? Instead, I splurged on some new dies and chose something I could use for many occasions.
My Rich loves old cars, especially trucks, and he's a little bit fascinated by this type of die cut card. You know... I always feel like a kid when I make one of these, and that's not a bad thing. Remember construction paper, and the paste that the kid sitting next to you liked to eat, the scissors that would cut paper, but not your fingers? Think back... that was a long time ago!
Anyway... I think it's pretty apparent how I put it together, so I'll simply share the die list:
Memory Box Pine Forest Frame
Impression Obsession Classic Truck
Poppystamps Stitched Landscapes
Sizzix Primitive Stars
I did some Copic coloring and sponged edges, but tried to keep it simple. The star is there because I didn't care for my placement of the sentiment and it needed a filler for balance. Actually, I think it might have been just the right thing to finish it off.
Thanks for stopping in to visit today. I enjoy this sharing thing of ours and I hope you do, too. Have a happy day!
