Carpe Diem - Fånga Dagen (Catch the Day)

tisdag 14 juni 2011

Hello, thank you for visiting me today.
This card will make any dad happy, if he just likes cars.
I wanted a little more youthful touch to this card. Moore Rock 'n Roll and leather and less golf and slippers, if you know what I mean.

Men usually do not like so much "bling", so I tried not to decorate so much.

I think the striped paper from Maja Design gives an illusion of road and speed.
Take time off, and take a trip out into the blue.

The car is cut out from a sheet that comes from Inkido,(I Think)
The sentiment from Reprint was stamped on white paper, then cut out with Nestabilities Classic Ovals Large and sponged with Distress Ink. Broken China.

The "tree" is made ​​of metal and I've cut it off from an old candle holder.

This is leather band which I have only sat down with staples.
I stamped some notes with a stamp from You Do and cut out with Nested Lacey Pennants, you need music on the road.
A few rhinestones finished of my card and I made the inside matching.
