Anyway, back to the card. I just purchased some "gently used" Papertrey Ink stamps and the coordinating die from a fellow crafter. Thank you, Emily! I've had my eye on the The Enjoy the Ride set for while now, and luckily she was looking to find a new home for hers. This set is so adorable and can be used for a number of occasions. In addition to stamps for both the outline and the inside of the car, the set includes a number of sentiment stamps and little greetings that go inside the license plate area. I love the versatility of the sayings. And I just couldn't wait to ink it up.
For my layout, I chose this week's CAS(E) this Sketch by Karolyn Loncon. I thought it would be the perfect sketch for the card I had in mind. And I had the perfect paper for my background from the Road Trip All-in-One Scrap Pad by K&Company that I found on the clearance shelves at TJ Maxx for only $2. It came together so quickly and I think turned out so cute.
Inspiration for this card actually came from a cute card that Nichole Heady, co-owner of Papertrey Ink, created for another vehicle release, Hot Rods, this past summer. You can scroll through her blog post to see her Speed Limit card here. I just loved the idea of including the birthday age as the speed limit. I used Paper Smooches Alphadots to create the lettering and a Fiskar's set for the numbers. I used a little Copic B00 in the window and some YR12 and glossy accents on the taillights and was done! A super simple, super cute card.
I hope my nephew likes this card enough to forgive us for being so late!
Thanks for visiting!
