Classic Pickups Birthday Card

You can never seem to find enough masculine cards. I found this somewhere on the Internet a while ago and don't know who originally made it. I did change a few things on it. I am REALLY fond of the plaid background. It's such a fun stamp to dress up the background on a masculine card. I used glossy white and made a rectangle mask. I sponged on some Creamy Carmel ink and then came in with a little Close to Cocoa to darken it a bit more. I wanted that look of an old photo. I stamped the truck with black Staz-on. The corners were made using square punches. It took a few times to get 4 that worked well together. Freehand you tend to get different sizes. This card looks like it should be the cover of a mini scrapbook! All in all it was a pretty quick card, with the exception of the corners. But once you figure out what you're doing it goes pretty fast.

Thank you for looking!
