Next Birthday Card.....

I had to do another manly birthday card and I always have such a hard time with these.  I was rummaging through a notebook of stamps and came across these Tim Holtz stamps and decided to use these.  I have no idea what the name of this set is, but I decided to use it anyway.  I used distress Inks to color watercolor paper and then stamped the truck with embossing ink and used black embossing powder to heat emboss.  I love the way it turned out.  Then I stamped the other parts with Memento black ink.  I roughed up the edges and used distress inks on the edges.  The piece is then mounted onto a piece of red cardstock and then put onto the card.  The inside was stamped with a birthday wish and it's a done deal!

I will have repair men in the house today, so this has to be a short post.  I'm sure I will need a nap this afternoon once everything is finished.  I plan to find myself a quiet corner and "Breathe".  You do the same!

Great card - I find cards for men to be so difficult.
