Being In The Driver's Seat


This card was created using the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #92. The card is for my nephew's birthday and is traveling all the way to Germany in his honor! Happy Birthday, Eric!!! This summer he stayed with his cousins in North Carolina and while he was there applied for his Learners Permit so I'm hoping this Changito Driver brings back lots of fun memories for him!

The card base is paper pierced Old Olive layered on to a slightly larger piece of Basic Black cardstock. Next I cut out a 3 x 5 1/2 strip of Basic Black cardstock and layered two pieces of Napoleon Marble Green patterned paper, one on each side. The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on paper pierced Whisper White using the Changito Driver Cling Mount Stamp and colored in using Tombow and Stampin Write Markers. I wrapped PTI Rustic Jute Button Twine around the card base twice and taped the ends down. To cover up the ends I attached a button embellished with more Rustic Jute Button Twine.

Thanks for stopping by!
