MANday Monday – An (almost) One Layer Car Card

So confession time. This card was actually for a girl, but i thought that is would work well for a boy too.

This is a ‘congratulations, you passed your driving test’ card built primarily with stamps. I picked out a few stamp sets from my stash which had cars and a driving theme, and tried to build a picture in my head. Its important to do some proper planning whenever making a one layer card because you have to start at the top and work backwards using masks – i used post it notes to mask over the stamped area.

I chose a word stamp from this Gas Hogs stamp set from Sassafras and repeated it over the bottom section of the card to make a patterned paper effect.

When I was finished stamping, i felt that it was missing something (perhaps i just missed a little bit of colour) so i punched some hearts out of scraps of scrapbook paper and adhered these with a glue pen.

Thanks for stopping by, I have a few layouts to share soon so come back to me soooooooon.x

    Thank you so much for for sharing this card. My nephew just passed his drivers test & it never occured to me to make him a card. Now I will!
