Enjoy Your Day

Hi Bloggers.

Here's another card I've made for you guys who follow my little blog. It's a quick easy peasy card which is suitable for a man for any occasion including Father's Day so if you need to made a card quick for tomorrow, here's an idea.

I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Dream Cars Stamp Set using Adirondack Pitch Black Dye Ink Pad. I coloured in using Promarkers - Berry Red, Burgundy, Cool Grey 2 and 5. You can't see it on the photo but I did actually put some acetate in for the front window of the car.

I cut A Spellbinders Lattice Motif out of silver mirri card.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Ribbon Banners and inked through the die with Barn Door Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I assembled the card as shown. The backing paper is My Mind's Eye Lost & Found.

I have updated the side bar with the times of my shows next Friday - they're at 2pm and 8pm.

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Morning Julia,
    A fab card today and I like how you've used Sue's die, a change of colour for the card and it would make a great alternative for a girlie card for those that don't like flowers.
    Have a great day

  16. Good Morning Julia, altho the weather not good down here, feel sorry for all those who come to Cornwall for a Holiday!!

    Anyway love the card again, great idea for an acetate windscreen, i also thought you could write the guys name on the number plate to personalise it. Ive already made dads card for tomorrow but love this idea for future makes, must try to track down those stamps as they would be useful in my stash!
