Today is my Grandson Jeffrey's 4th Birthday, so I wanted to make a special card for him.
The inspiration for this card started with a sketch challenge over at Sketch N' Stash.
I have three packs of Later Sk8r that I only used once and is retiring in a few days, and is already sold out. This paper makes great cards for my grandsons and since I have four that are still Children and one a Teen, it works perfectly.
From my stash, I also pulled a black glitter button with a grey pearl in the center and two grey pearls in the tire hubs.
The stamp set I used is Fast and Furious. The truck was stamped on the paper with Whisper ink. Then parts stamped again in Lagoon and the tires in black. All pieces were cut out and layered with foam tape.
I always like to Hand Stitch on my family's cards to make them a little extra special.
I also used a little of the Green Glitz Glitter Gel in the number "4" for added sparkle as well as some of the Black Shimmer Trim on the corners and under the truck.
Now hope on over to Lori's blog and see what great eye candy she has for you!
