Today is the birthday of my eldest son - Happy Birthday Andrew! and here is the card that I have made for him.
I decided to try clean and simple as he likes the minimalist look, inspired by Chrissie on her "Simply One of a Kind" blog. The next problem was what to put on it - don't we always have a problem with men's cards!
I decided on a shirt stamp that I had from way back, BUT guess what - That's right I couldn't find it! perhaps I dreamt I had it. Anyway on rummaging through all my lovely wooden mounted stamps I came across this one of a sports car - an Anita stamp I think. It has a greeting across the bottom but I masked that off and decided to go with it. ( I also found a lot of other beautiful stamps that I had forgotten about in the process and promised myself I must use them soon - some have never seen an ink pad)!!
The embossed strip is from a Spellbinders M-Bossability - Kicking rubber. These folders are fabulous. I mounted it on red to give an edge top and bottom and to match the car that I stamped in festive berries distress ink and embossed with clear powder. I then cut it close to the image and mounted on the embossed panel.
The sentiment was a mixture of two different stamps from my stash, stamped and embossed the same as the car.
An insert and greeting inside - and job done. Quick when you have the idea. It took longer to think about it all.
Hope he likes it!
Enjoy your Bank Holiday and the sunshine too if the forecast is correct.
