I must admit, my dh and dd helped me come up with the concept for my card. I was able to take their general idea, and run with it. I started by printing the inside sentiment directly onto the card base. Here is your first look:
I knew I had a stamp of a pick-up truck with various stamps for truckloads. I wanted to go with hearts, flowers or a pile of gifts. DD like the hearts, so I went with that idea.
I needed a road for the truck, and found a nice paper scrap to represent the road surface and a stamp that worked great for the center stripe of the road. Of course, the speed limit had to be the age of the recipient, so I made the appropriate road sign. Also, I had some scraps of grass that were perfect to add to the side of the road.
I had started out with a plain white card base, and when I knew what the layout would be I chose a nice blue for the background sky.
The sentiment, speed sign and truck were all affixed with foam tape.
Once I had everything assembled I added a tiny rhinestone on the sentiment tag and some larger rhinestones as wheel covers on the truck.
Here is a close shot of the outside greeting:
And, finally, here is the full card.
I hope my family member enjoys the overall sentiment of this card, and I hope you like it, too! If you have questions about any of the supplies used, please feel free to ask me in the comments section. As usual, I added plenty of labels for reference.
'Til next time; thanks for stopping by!!
