My Brother-in-Law's birthday was today so I wanted to share the card I sent to him. It's no surprise that I made a shaped card... I LOVE them!
This is a LARGE card measuring 4" tall and just under 8 1/2" wide, btw it fits perfectly into a #10 business envelope. The car comes from Groovy Times, cut at 4".
I used some metallic cardstock for the chrome car parts. I embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder and a stamp from Hero Arts' Big Hugs set. I set two rhinestones for the headlights.
Using a clear Glaze pen by Gelly Roll, I added lots of little details that this cut didn't include. I used a finger dauber and some royal blue ink to add depth to the car body. It's subtle, but really adds a lot to such a duo-tone card. My BIL is a muscle car lover at heart and I thought he would appreciate the little details.
Here you can see how the card can stand on it's own. I love that it can be displayed. Apparently my BIL loved it enough to give my hubby a call and tell him how much he loved his card.... and it wasn't all about the money inside! :)
