This last Saturday of July, our hostess Karen O. has challenged us to make a masculine card. I purchased a digital stamp of this drawing of a Classic Ford, popular in the 40’s quite some time ago before I was blogging. Therefore, I have no idea who the artist is. I work 3 days a week in a beauty salon inside of an upscale senior community. It is truly a blessing to work with my parents generation. My parents both died young, so I appreciate their wisdom and humor so much. This car would have been quite the car in the prime of their lives. I thought this would be a card I could give to one of the “boys” that live there.
Step 1: I sized and printed out the car on white cardstock.and colored with Copic markers B21, B23 and B24.
Step 2: The finished card measures 5 x 7″, so score a piece of 8.5 x 11 at 5.5″ on the long side. Fold over for a tent fold card and trim to the finished size. Cut a rectangle piece of wood look cardstock that measures 6.75″ x 4.75″. Adhere it to the front of the white base card.
Step 3: Cut a rectangle from black cardstock that measures 5.75″ x 3″. Cut the colored printed car to a rectangle that measures 5.25 x 2 and 5 eights. Adhere this to the black one centered.
Step 4: Using Elizabeth Craft Designs: happy birthday, cut once with silver mirror cardstock. Using Elizabeth Craft Designs: Corners cut 4 also from silver cardstock.
Step 5: Adhere the “silver corners” to the corners of the wood look background. Adhere the step 3 mounted “car” to the card at .5″ from the bottom and sides of the wood background. Then add the “happy birthday” as shown. Here’s another look:
Thanks so much for stopping by for a look.This is an easy challenge, so I hope you will show us your masculine card! Your cards inspire us!
