Make it Masculine!

Blue Classic Ford H2O

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.

The Steps:

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:
