I have a very manly card to share today. I made it for a man named Robert who is battling lung cancer. Michelle over at Queen of my Craftroom is organizing a card drive for him. Please jump over to Michelle's blog to get all the info and a mailing address for your cards.
Here is my card. I really wanted to make a manly card for Robert. I printed the sentiment on my computer and fit everything for my card base (it's an A2 - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"). The black layer is cut at 4" x 5 1/4" and the blue layer is 3 3/4" x 5". I then rounded the corners using my 1/2" Corner Chomper.
The truck is from Just Because Cards cut at 3 1/2" (and all it's layers). I cut it just as it is in the book except for the fenders. For those I used silver metallic paper and then I added some silver eyelets for the wheels.
On my little accent strip, I used a black strip cut at 4 1/4" x 1 1/4" and a white strip cut at 4 1/4" x 1". I also used the 1/2" Corner Chomper on the top corners of this piece.
I used my white Gelly Roll gel pen to add doodles all around the card body and it's layers, the truck and also on the inside of the card.
I centered a Scrappy Mom's Stamps in the inside. I thought it was a perfect sentiment reading:
"With Prayers & Positive Thoughts"
