Hi friends! Well, it’s a beautiful Thursday here – not too warm and definitely not too cool! We are waking up to cooler temps more and more, which is a good indication that the warm weather won’t here too much longer! Yaaay! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’ve popped in today in between everything else going on to share my inspiration project for The Outlawz Freebie/Progressive Challenge where TwinkleLaneDesigns is our sponsor and we were gifted the super cute New Car digital set to play with! I did lots of paper piecing for this masculine birthday card!
I cut a standard A2 top-folding landscape card base from CutCardStock Basis Aqua cardstock along with die cut rectangle layering panels from CutCardStock Pop-Tone 65# Raspberry cardstock, CutCardStock Basis 80# Gray cardstock and Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock. I printed the car image four times, once each on CutCardStock Basis 80# Gray cardstock, CutCardStock Stardream Metallic 105# Silver cardstock, CutCardStock 80# Dolphin cardstock and Bazzill Marble 6×6 cardstock, and proceeded to cut the different elements from the different colors and paper piecing it together. I love paper piecing… sometimes the fussy cutting is very calming brainless work, lol! I stamped BEEP on the license plate which I thought would add a whimsical touch to the kind of retro-looking car, then stamped the sentiment in the bottom center of the white stitched rectangle die cut, and adhered the car to the panel. Then I layered the rest of the die cut rectangle panels onto the card base. I added a few ‘touches’ with the white paint pen to complete the front.
I die cut the inside rectangle panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and embellished it with patterned paper and cardstock strips, layered it on a dark gray rectangle die cut, and adhered it to the inside of the card base. I printed the inside sentiment from the digital set, cut it with a stitched rectangle die and cut the left side off for a little interest, and adhered it to the inside panel.
And one more look… such a great masculine card! I’m loving this image!
