Since my husband snuck a peek at the card I had made him, I decided to make another one for him. Actually his birthday was on Monday (same as mine) and Father’s Day is around the corner, so I really needed another card, plus one for my dad. I think I have made more masculine cards this month than I have the rest of the year. It has been fun since masculine cards seem harder to make and it has been a good challenge.
This card started with a piece of glossy cardstock and I brayered ink from a multicolored ink pad. I shifted it down a bit half way through and it gave a great blending of the colors. I ran it through a new embossing folder and then sponged the edges and the embossed image with black Stazon ink. This really brought out the man with the umbrella. Using more black Stazon ink I stamped the car image which is a 1905 Buick Model C from Sparkle N Sprinkle.
I added some white hi-lites with a white pen and added three brads to the top right. I just bought these brad on Saturday and loved how they went with this card. I layered this onto cream cardstock, then dark brown. This is added to a brown plaid decorative cardstock that is also layered onto dark brown and finally onto a cream card base. Maybe I will actually surprise the hubby this time (and it is still a Buick – his true love).
