Hiya! I don’t know about you, but I tend to make cards for fun and challenges and then have to make special cards for people as their birthdays come up, even though I have 20 or so birthday cards in my stash. Such was the case this past weekend when I realized it was no longer November and my dad’s birthday was just a couple days away! Ridiculous, I know, but I don’t think my dad wants a card with a little boy holding dinosaurs on it. lol
I found this card on pinterest and knew I had to do my own version. I used the new Instant Camera die from Lil’ Inker Designs to create a fun frame for the little slug bug. My friend sent me a few of these little cars from PTI’s Enjoy the Ride a while back, and it fit perfectly! I sliced out the windshield area and went to trace the line with a Memento marker (I think it looks better to have the outline), when I swiped it right up over the roof of the car. Grrr! But I didn’t have time to re-do it, so I had to go against my perfectionistic ways and just go with it. Once it was all colored up, I stamped in the FATHER license plate (PTI Mixed Messages) and added glossy accents to the headlights and blinker lights.
The sentiment is from PTI Mod Squad and is embossed. The letters were cut with PTI alphabet dies. I added them to the double twill ribbon with glossy accents as well. I use that stuff for everything! I fix all my kiddo’s toys with it even! It’s awesome ;o)
My dad never wanted to get *over the hill*, so I still tease him that he’s 39.
I used the stamps that I cut from fun foam to add the age. Super fun!
I’ve changed some things and cleaned up the sidebars on the blog today. Holy moly that took a long time! I’m glad it’s done though…it doesn’t feel so cluttered now. Hopefully, I will go through my stamps soon and add something to the For Sale page.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a super day!! :o) lyss
