Transport For Nephew
Good morning all
I was asked to make a card for nephew so had a free run – as it was needed for this afternoon I made it last night
Imagine my surprise when I checked out this weeks theme on The Cd Sunday Callenge Blog and found it was Transportation!!!
I used Debbi Moore Cards For Men .
To make the card I used an 8x8 card blank. I needed some red mirri card but I'm afraid its in a safe place with all but gold and silver mirri card – and yes you know what I'm going to say – I cant find my safe place!!!
So instead I used some vellum type paper, its bright red one side and sort of pearlescent and the other, so I used the pearlescent side up, the paper was trimmed so it left an all round border, then I nipped the corners with a punch and stuck to the card with double sided tape.
Next I trimmed a sheet of map paper with red heavy lines from the cd, again I left a border all round and nipped the corners then stuck with double sided tape.
I cut the base image out and matted it to a piece of dark brown card, the corners were nipped on the card.
Using a sheet of the same red vellum paper I folded in half so again I had the pearlescent side showing, I trimmed this so I had a broad all round border, nipped the edges then stuck the brown card to it with double sided tape and finally this entire panel was stuck to my card using large pads, it was up in the left corner.
The decoupage was cut out and fixed in place using small sticky pads.
To finish off I used Happy Birthday and Special Nephew sentiments from a pack by Papermania, these were both stuck to oddments of brown card and cut out to leave borders then stuck at an angle under the image with sticky pads.
Using Cosmic Shimmer clear varnish lacquer I touched the wheel trims and lights.
Finally using some very tiny white peel off letters I added NEP35 to the registration plate as it was for Nephews 35th birthday
And that's the card all finished, insert added, in cello bag ready to be collected!!
I do hope you like this card
See you again soon
