You Still Have the Spark Masculine Birthday Card

Hello, everyone!  I’m just dropping in quickly to share this week’s Crafty Secrets card with you.  This one’s a masculine birthday card made with stamps from the Car Classics digital set, and red checkered paper from the Vintage Patterns CD.  Take a look:

You Still Have the Spark 1

I started by sizing the checkered paper digitally, layering the wordblock stamp onto it, and printing.  Then, I sized my sentiments (inner and outer), checkered flags, and car the way I wanted and printed all of those out as well.  I tore the edges of my background paper and die cut the sentiments, then sponged all the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink.  Then I spent a good while coloring the car, adding Glossy Accents to the windshield and lights, and finally fussy cutting it.  I also spritzed it with some glimmer mist, but kind of wish I hadn’t because it made the car look dirty…whoops…but I’d spent too long coloring and didn’t want to do it again 😛  Here’s a look at the inside:

And there you have it!  It can be so easy to make masculine cards when one has the right supplies, it’s kind of amazing.

Don’t forget, if you’re looking for incredible deals, Crafty Secrets has 8 Sale Packs (2 of them are BRAND NEW!) full of tons of vintage-y goodness for card making and scrapbooking and anything else you can think of.  Now’s the perfect time to buy the Halloween and Autumn Sale Pack, or get a headstart on Christmas cards with the Christmas Sale Pack!  There’s also a new Cooking Sale Pack that has all sorts of great stuff for making Thanksgiving cards, layouts, or decorations.

That’s it for me! Have a lovely day!

    I love this! The checkered background is amazing…and that car looks like it is driving right off the card. Fabby!
