It's yet another Father's Day card today. Here in Australia we celebrate Father's Day on the first Sunday in September - which is coming up fast and I STILL have one more to make!! Yikes!!! This one is going to my Dad along with a gift card to the local auto store! :)
I started with a base of white, layered with red, another piece of white and then a strip of SU's retired Ginger Blossom DSP. On the white panel I stamped the flourish from SU's Friends 24-7 in Real Red that I stamped off once. The middle panel is a piece of red bazzill cut using the Deckled Rectangle Nestabilities and layered with a piece of white that has been embossed using the Tiny Mosaic EF. I decided to make the ute (or truck if you prefer) red because Dad has a red ute!! :) I actually stamped the truck from the Artful Inkables set Into the Moonlight - which is actually meant to be Bella's truck from Twilight.....shhhhhhh.....he'll never know!!! :) I then coloured it in with Real Red and an Aqua Painter, black marker and blender and a bit of Angel Wings Shimmerz (that my wonderful friend Michelle sent me!) and a touch of Dimensional Magic on the glass windows. The truck was then cut out and popped up on foam tape. For the sentiment, I grabbed JustRite's Favorite Occasions Borders and Centers Set and stamped the Father's Day centre and border in Close to Cocoa ink. I thought this cup image would be great with the car theme!! I also painted the cup with a touch of Angel Wings Shimmerz to make it shiny!! :) I finished off with some chocolate grosgrain ribbon and some copper brads in the corners.
